SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
Stat Doctors™, a
leading eHealth solution providing 24/7/365 access to affordable
quality care, developed a mobile app improving health care delivery
through high-quality video eVisits. Available for iPad, iPhone (News - Alert) and
Android smartphones, Stat Doctors Mobile App provides all the features
of the computer application and links members with board-certified ER
physicians for on-demand treatment of minor illnesses and common medical
"Health care delivery is shifting rapidly toward an affordable,
on-demand model, yet it's imperative that convenience doesn't compromise
quality," said Dr. Alan C. Roga, M.D., F.A.C.E.P., founder and CEO of
Stat Health Services, the providers of Stat Doctors. "We created a
mobile app that goes well beyond other eHealth services, providing a
full patient care delivery model and truly exceptional patient
Utilizing proprietary technology, Stat
Doctors Mobile App boasts a combination of industry-leading features.
With an average wait time of six minutes, patients can use the app to
seek treatment for minor illnesses such as respiratory infections,
influenza, strep throat and other non-emergency conditions.
Unlike competitor apps, the entire health care delivery model is
available through the app, including high-quality video enabling
patients and doctors to commuicate as they would in person.
Doctors can ePrescribe medications, instantly delivering them to the
patient's pharmacy of choice.
Within 72 hours of every eVisit, a follow-up call is conducted to
ensure the patient's recovery.
Stat Doctors is the only eHealth service in which patients are treated
solely by an exclusive network of board-certified ER physicians.
The American Telemedicine Association (News - Alert) estimates more than 10 million
Americans directly benefited from telemedicine over the past year, and
this number is expected to more than double by 2016. Moreover, according
to a January report from comScore (News - Alert), mobile devices accounted for 55
percent of Internet usage in the United States, and apps made up 47
percent of total traffic.
Anticipating the growing demand for mobile health care services, Stat
Doctors created a HIPAA-compliant app offering high-quality, secure and
immediate care utilizing video.
"The Stat Doctors Mobile App demonstrates our commitment to advance the
eHealth category. Not only has our data shown that more than 60 percent
of our patients access the service through mobile devices, but the
patient experience with video is superior," said Dr. Roga.
Stat Doctors was founded in 2009 by a proprietary group of
board-certified, practicing ER physicians. It's available as an
additional health benefit through employer-provided health insurance
coverage and other group plans. Dr. Roga says the company has taken a
patient-focused stance since day one.
"The quality of care is second to none. This app makes the service even
more convenient for patients, enabling them to receive this high-quality
care completely on the go," he said.
The app is available by searching "Stat Doctors" in the App Store (iOS)
and Google (News - Alert) Play (Android).
As a national eHealth leader, Stat Doctors will soon launch an app for
its network of physicians to further improve the patient experience.
