Reid HealthNOW: $49 Virtual Urgent Care visits
Many hospitals and health systems are turning to Telehealth and the concept of virtual visits as they face new regulations and mandates to improve health outcomes and patient satisfaction, while reducing health care costs. Reid HealthNOW, our new virtual visit application for urgent care, is a convenient way to see a physician from wherever you happen to be!
Virtual visits are a direct-to-consumer Telehealth service that replaces in-person physician office visits for lower-acuity services such as episodic care for seasonal allergies and upper respiratory infections, behavioral health services, and routine follow-up for chronic diseases and prenatal care.
Ultimately, these visits will be available to patients 24/7/365. As a result, the benefits are many, including:
Convenience. Patients who value convenience will benefit from the immediate availability of a Reid Nurse Practitioner or Physician for highly
convenient access to low-acuity episodic care, behavioral health services, and routine follow-up for chronic diseases.
Source of care for patients lacking a ‘usual source of care’. Reid’s virtual visits will connect any patient with a Reid Nurse Practitioner or Physician, even if they do not have a usual source of care or are currently seeking care from some other sources.
Lower cost of care for insurers and self-insured employers. Virtual visits help lower costs by reducing unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital readmissions, as well as improving the management of chronic conditions to avoid costly acute episodes.
Enhanced privacy for behavioral health visits. For patients concerned about privacy or any perceived stigma about in-person visits, your behavioral health visits can be conducted from the privacy of your own home. This more convenient access to these behavioral health services helps to increase treatment plan compliance.
