RealTime Medicine is new service that allows patients to consult with a doctor live and face-to-face through video, phone or email from anywhere! This revolutionary way of healthcare delivery provides patients with on-demand access to board-certified doctors and licensed therapists 24/7/365.
RealTime Medicine is a game-changer in the healthcare delivery market. RealTime Medicine utilizes a network of licensed physicians that can order prescriptions, lab tests, x-rays and make referrals to specialists using patients insurance plans or a using a pre-negotiated rate through the online system at home.
RealTime Medicine CEO Brad Burch states, “Employers are realizing healthcare costs only going up; RealTime Medicine is a world-class affordable alternative that offers employees more benefits and more convenience while saving companies money, and reducing absenteeism; which improves productivity and promotes a healthier workforce” he added.
Burch explains, “Studies show 72% of urgent care visits and 67% of emergency room visits could be seen by telehealth providers. Urgent care ranges from $150 to $350 per visit, while ER visits range from $900 to $1200. Insurance premiums are rising and are calculated based on administration, claims & usage. If we can redirect the number of expensive emergency room and urgent care visits, then claims will be reduced; lowering overall health premiums. People that want to use their health savings accounts are approved for use with our system too,” Burch said.
The at-home service is easy and convenient to use. The patient turns on his / her laptop and using live encrypted-video along with email or by phone, the patient speaks with a physician using a secure, HIPAA compliant, confidential and easy-to-use system. Realtime Medicine is safe, convenient, affordable, and available 24/7/365. For more information visit http://www.realtimemedicine.com.
