MDLIVE’s virtual doctor visit platform received some great reviews at the recent Innovation HealthJam, a 3-day virtual brainstorming session on hot healthcare issues. Hosted by Panasonic, HealthJam topics ranged from genomic mapping, connected aging, patient engagement to telemedicine and telehealth. MDLIVE along with other virtual doctor visit services Zipnosis and American Well showed up several times in a “My Favorite Telehealth Products” forum. I was a little surprised at how popular online doctor services like MDLIVE have become. Here are some MDLIVE reviews that were posted:
“I’m a fan of MDLive. I’ve used this telemedicine service twice with great success. I even used it from Dublin!” – John Nosta, Jam host
“I also like MDLive (http://bit.ly/1n9GgCt) and, for simple conditions (you know the ones Gramma used to treat), I like Zipnosis (http://bit.ly/1p69BSL) – its Minute Clinic on Your Mobile.” – Patricia Salba, Jam host
“I have found MDLive to be an excellent solution for simple stuff. It is FAST (10-15 min), immediate, and cheap $35. Customer service was excellent, much better than traditional care models.” – Christopher Wasden, academia
There was also a plug for MDLIVE competitor American Well:
“I tried out American Well at a conference. The MD was terrific, I received a recording of the visit, and it was affordable -less than my urgicare co-pay.. I’m looking forward to their nutritional services, launching in July. This saved me a trek to an urgicare center. The recommendation was also appropriate –no prescription was supplied.” – Ellen Cohn, academia
Looks like the next time I have a sinus infection I’ll have to try out MDLIVE’s telemedicine service – definitely cheaper than trying to meet my deductible!
