San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2009
Current Health Medical Group, formally known as San Francisco On Call Medical Group, today launched a revamped online appointment system. Individuals can now go directly to Current Health's Web site (http://www.currenthealth.com) and within minutes schedule a same-day office visit or house call.
While the nationwide shortage of primary care physicians continues to undermine the doctor-patient relationship, Current Health has developed yet another tool for individuals to access high quality primary care services minus the obstacles associated with managed care. "The Internet is changing how doctors interact with their patients. Current Health is responding to technological and cultural change by creating a highly responsive and accessible medical practice," said Jordan Shlain, Current Health's CEO and founder. "Our new online appointment scheduling system underscores Current Health's commitment to the patient through an 'always-on' environment that reduces costs and contributes to better patient outcomes."
Members and individuals new to Current Health are eligible to schedule an appointment at their earliest convenience. New participants are asked to register online prior to confirming their appointment. While membership with Current Health is not required, individuals must be members to have priority access to appointment times 24 hours a day. Individuals with questions regarding membership or the new scheduling platform are encouraged to visit http://www.currenthealth.com, or call Current Health's office at (415) 732-7029.
