Save Time & Money, Improve Health & Wellness

Consumer Driven Telemedicine promotes more efficient and inexpensive access to physicians and can replace many unnecessary doctor’s office and ER visits, substantially reducing overall healthcare costs and resulting in healthier participants by promoting wellbeing, access to care when needed and disease prevention.

The key to a successful telemedicine program is in the utilization. 78% of doctor visits can be handled via telemedicine. High utilization drives significant Return on Investment (ROI) especially when offered through employer self-insured programs. Telemedicine costs pennies to use versus real dollars for traditional healthcare.

Let us show you how much you can save!

Method to the Madness

Call a Doctor Plus has developed a scalable, easy to use platform to drive utilization. Our system educates and motivates the end user to register and ultimately use the program either telephonically or through video. We monitor use on a monthly basis and, when necessary, reengage the population to ensure a favorable year end ROI. To date, Call A Doctor Plus has an industry leading book utilization of +50% versus an industry mark of less than 15%, making our clients and brokers very satisfied.

Our mission is to be the partner of choice when a broker would like to add telehealth services to their client’s plan. We succeed by delivering a customer delight at the outset and achieving the desired financial result in the end.
