American Well, today announced that its award-winning online care marketplace, the Exchange, has continued to expand with the addition of providers from Intermountain Healthcare. Intermountain Healthcare already serves its existing patients and communities through Intermountain Connect Care for on-demand telehealth visits 24/7/365.
Through the Exchange, Intermountain will make its nurse practitioners and physician assistants available to patients living in Utah, and soon Idaho, for live, telehealth visits on Amwell®, the #1 most downloaded video telehealth app.
“We’re excited to build on our vision for telehealth by expanding our reach as an organization through the Exchange. The Exchange allows us to make our providers available to patients where they might not otherwise have immediate access to Intermountain Healthcare, and the high standards of care we bring to all of our telehealth interactions. It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to establish relationships with new patients through telehealth, and continue to elevate the standard of care delivered over technology,” said Dr. William Daines, Medical Director for Connect Care, Intermountain Healthcare.
The Exchange was launched in May 2016 with the first named partners to enter it; Cleveland Clinic, LiveHealth Online from Anthem, and Nemours Children’s Health System.
