The overwhelming demand for our house call service, FetchMD, in San Antonio and the I-35 corridor has propelled us into the Austin market
San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) January 29, 2018
Ranger Health, Inc., the innovative on-demand healthcare and technology services company based in San Antonio launches FetchMD, its on-demand house call service in Austin today.
“The overwhelming demand for our house call service, FetchMD, in San Antonio and the I-35 corridor has propelled us into the Austin market,” said Michael C. Zucker, FACHE, Ranger Health founder and chief executive officer. “FetchMD provides a very fast and affordable alternative to the typical healthcare experience, enabling customers to access care in the convenience of their home or office by scheduling a same-day visit through the FetchMD app.”
The FetchMD service provides a hassle-free and low-cost alternative to visiting a doctor’s office or urgent care clinic. Instead, consumers can simply “fetch” an in- person visit with a licensed Physician Assistant (“PA”) or Nurse Practitioner via the FetchMD mobile app for everything from strep throat to stiches for a flat fee of $119. Consumers can use their Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), as well as credit and debit cards.
“We are truly redefining the healthcare experience from one that was complicated and inconvenient to one that is simple, fast and affordable. Giving consumers control over when and where they want to be seen is rarely found in healthcare today,” Zucker said.
The FetchMD app, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, matches consumers’ requests with available providers, enabling the consumer to pick the most convenient time for them or their family member to schedule a visit. FetchMD currently offers its services Monday through Saturday.
FetchMD is launching in Central and Northwest Austin, and will soon expand throughout the Central Texas region. Users enjoy a consumer experience unlike any other for quick and affordable, on-demand, healthcare. FetchMD creates a local, virtual marketplace by matching healthcare professionals with consumers.
“The beauty of our platform is that while it provides the ultimate in convenience for consumers, it also creates a way for Advanced Practice Clinicians to leverage their skills and make additional income when it’s convenient for them, too. Our simple, easy and low-cost approach to obtaining healthcare for minor injuries and illnesses has been enthusiastically embraced by consumers in San Antonio,” Zucker said. “We are excited to introduce FetchMD to Austinites and look forward to fetching your next app-ointment.”
FetchMD was launched by Ranger Health, Inc. which was founded in 2015 by former health system executive Michael C. Zucker, FACHE and a successful group of serial entrepreneurs who previously co-founded AirStrip, WellAware, Splice and other innovative software companies. FetchMD delivers on-demand, house calls and enables consumers to experience the convenience and affordability of face-to-face healthcare for minor injuries and illnesses in the comfort of their home or office via a user-friendly app. It allows the consumer to immerse themselves in the shared economy for healthcare in an entirely new way.
