On-demand telehealth provider Doctor On Demand has partnered with LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics to offer fully integrated laboratory services to its more than one million patients. By electronically integrating the lab experience into its platform, Doctor On Demand gives doctors direct access to a comprehensive array of tests without having to go through separate lab provider platforms, while offering patients a seamless, paperless experience.
“Our mission is to improve the world’s health through compassionate care and innovation. By integrating with labs and upgrading our patient profile and follow-up care services, we’ve taken a major step in advancing the quality and range of services treatable via telemedicine,” said Hill Ferguson, CEO of Doctor On Demand. “We’re providing a higher quality and better overall experience, giving patients the unique ability to build a relationship with a single doctor, always putting the patient first.”
Doctor On Demand empowers patients to take charge of their own health — when a doctor orders a lab test, patients can directly and immediately choose the lab experience that best fits their needs according to price, location, and insurance rather than having a provider or institution dictate the experience. Patients then receive easy-to-understand results and next steps through the app. Doctor On Demand also empowers the development of strong doctor-patient relationships through the use of employed doctors that are available day-to-day, transforming where, when and how you connect with providers.
Other telemedicine services treat patients through phone calls, without the ability to visually examine the patient during the visit, and rely on a network of independent, part-time physicians who are rarely available to provide follow-up or future visits. This contrasts significantly with Doctor On Demand’s services, which provide continuity of care — full-time doctors with an average of over 15 years experience and a range of specialties, who are available day-to-day and build trusted relationships with patients over time.
