These latest offerings represent the company’s commitment to innovating access to care, providing convenience, and exceptional patient experience.
“We aim to lead the digitization of healthcare with new services that remove barriers to care,” says Caesar Djavaherian, MD, Founder and Medical Director of Direct Urgent Care. “Our clinicians are committed to helping people feel better faster in a timely and convenient fashion, and now the quality care and friendly service we’re known for is available through mobile house calls and virtual online visits.”
Mobile Urgent Care or Mobile Home/Office Calls brings urgent care services directly to patients, in the comfort of their home or office featuring the Direct Urgent Care’s team of board certified, Emergency Medicine-trained providers. Mobile house/office calls are perfect for urgent care conditions such as UTIs, allergies/allergic reactions, flu-like symptoms, sprains and cuts, or work related illness and injuries. Available on Direct Urgent Care’s website, mobile house calls are ideal for parents with small children, elderly patients, or simply when patients want to avoid long ER wait times and exposure to other sick people.
Virtual Visits provide a convenient way to access care without a trip to the clinic, doctor’s office or Emergency Room. Patients can see and speak with our providers remotely through a secure, live video-conference using their mobile device. The service can be used for a variety of patient follow-up needs, including recently discharged patients with a high risk of re-admission. This service can also be utilized for many types of routine follow up appointments, allowing our clinicians to visually examine patients, exchange information, and issue prescriptions quickly and conveniently.
“We strive to innovate new technologies that improve the way we deliver care and delight patients.” said Scott Cheeseman, CEO of Direct Urgent Care. “With Digital Urgent Care and Virtual Visits, our patients choose how they will access care and from what location is most convenient to receive that care. These services – along with the entire program of services available through Your Care, Your Choice – greatly improves communication between clinicians, patients and caregivers in a dependable, seamless way.”
All patient information and virtual visits with a doctor are private, secure and HIPAA compliant. For more information, please visit the Direct Urgent Care website for our full privacy disclosures.
The Your Choice, Your Care program of services was developed by Direct Urgent Care to deliver both clinician and consumer-facing solutions that enhance healthcare delivery and patient experience. It extends our clinical-care expertise and friendly patient experience beyond the brick-and-mortar clinics and into people’s homes, offices and online.
