Fruit Street Health Announces Expanded Availability of Its Turnkey Telemedicine Platform for Healthcare Providers

NEW YORK, March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fruit Street (, a rapidly-growing physician-funded telehealth company, today announced it has reduced the cost and increased availability of its telemedicine software platform for healthcare providers who need to establish virtual clinics to protect patients, doctors and staff due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic.  Fruit Street's comprehensive platform includes telehealth software, scheduling, credentialing with payers, customer service, secure messaging and more. With the Fruit Street platform, medical practices and individual practitioners can set up a custom-branded, HIPAA- and HITRUST-compliant virtual clinic in minutes, allowing them to consult with and treat patients through live video chat and text messages. Due to growing demand, Fruit Street has increased the number of licenses it has available as well as its customer support team to manage the additional volume.

"Our software is already being used by several medical institutions across the country including Harvard Medical School's Brigham and Women's Hospital," said Laurence Girard, founder and CEO of Fruit Street. "Given the urgent need for hundreds of thousands of healthcare providers to begin offering telemedicine appointments, we are increasing the availability and reducing the price of our telemedicine platform immediately to help with this public health crisis."

Fruit Street's software can be licensed to physicians, healthcare professionals and educators which allows them to conduct IPAA-compliant video consultations and engage in HIPAA-compliant text messaging with their patients, clients and students. The platform includes a patient portal that patients can access 24/7, which allows providers to share education materials, upload lab results and other files.  It also allows healthcare providers to keep detailed patient data and session notes as well as monitor the health, diet and lifestyle of their patients using wearable devices and medical devices. In addition, the platform supports billing, scheduling, credit card processing, and a fully-integrated suite of applications to implement a telemedicine component to any healthcare area of specialty in minutes. The company also offers unlimited training and customer support – such as real-time online chat tech support - for providers and patients for the lifetime of the subscription.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has forced so many of us to minimize our in-person medical practices," said Cathy Wang, MD, a primary care physician in California. "With telemedicine now critical for the practice of medicine moving forward, Fruit Street's platform is the comprehensive solution every healthcare provider needs to take care of our patients in a safe, virtual environment."

The Fruit Street platform, which includes a custom-branded interface, video chat software, customer service for patients, and billing support, normally costs $300 per month. However, given Fruit Street's commitment to helping healthcare providers during the COVID-19 public health crisis, Fruit Street has reduced its price to $199 per month. Healthcare providers can learn more about the platform and sign up for a 14-day free trial by emailing Fruit Street at
