5 On-Demand Healthcare Services
Heal.com (delivery and virtual)
Well known for enabling doctors to do house calls, Heal also now offers televisits. With Heal, patients are able to pick the day and time that works best for their appointment, talk to a qualified doctor by phone or video, see the same doctor again (if needed), and always know their price up front.
DispatchHealth delivers medical care directly to its patients. They enable medical staff to make house calls 7 days a week, 365 days a year and treat everything an urgent care can. Plus more!
Luna Physical Therapy (delivery and virtual)
We, of course, have to mention Luna!
Luna is physical therapy, delivered. Luna offers on-demand physical therapy delivered to patients’ homes, gyms, or offices, and now offers PT televists during the COVID-19 pandemic. Luna works with more than 500 exceptional physical therapists across a variety of states, accepts most insurances, and has appointments available everyday.
Doctor on Demand (virtual)
With Doctor on Demand, patients can connect face to face with a doctor, psychiatrist or psychologist through video on their iPhone or iPad. Doctor On Demand works with or without insurance and is available at reduced rates through many major health plans and large employers. Patients will always see their cost upfront. Doctor On Demand’s providers are licensed, board-certified and US-based. With an average patient rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars, their physicians, psychiatrists, and psychologists have experience across many specialities.
Teladoc® connects patients with a board-certified doctor 24/7/365 through the convenience of phone or video visits. Within minutes, a doctor will contact patients and be ready to listen, and resolve any issue. If medically necessary a prescription will be sent to the patient’s pharmacy of choice.
