Tacoma-based MultiCare is offering a new service for patients with not-so-severe complaints. If you’d like to see a doctor but you don’t want to go to a doctor’s office — there’s a fresh app for that.
MultiCare announced Tuesday that it had inked a partnership agreement with Doctor On Demand, a service that offers real-time, face-to-face video access to a board certified physician.Silly us, but that does sound like markets improve efficiency for healthcare. Specifically;
Callers will be pre-screened to identify the specific health complaint, and a physician will come online within 90 seconds, according to a MultiCare news release. The physician will diagnose the problem, and can send a prescription to a local pharmacy if appropriate. If the condition is serious, the physician might advise that the patient seek immediate care at a clinic or an emergency room.Which will cost all of $40.
