My OnCall Doc Launches New Healthcare on Demand Service With Access to Over 500 Doctors

New On-Demand Model Expected to Be the Next Big Thing in Healthcare

LARGO, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2014) - My OnCall Doc (MOD), a telehealth technology provider of physician and healthcare services, announced today that it has launched a new healthcare on demand service. The browser-based service provides subscribing members with immediate access to a North American Physician network of over 500 doctors and other health care professionals.

The MOD website enables users to call a doctor at any time using video chat technology or to book a future consultation at a convenient time. MOD currently provides on-demand access to doctors and medical professionals in 47 states.

MOD co-founder Craig Zurman said, "We are excited to bring this solution to America. While the Affordable Care Act has been a challenge for many, our technology allows Americans entering the health care system the fastest and easiest access to a Doctor at affordable prices. This is an important solution to the problems of ever escalating costs and complexity of routine healthcare.

"The interest has been overwhelming," said Zurman. "You can become a member of My OnCall Doc for $99 per year and each consultation is billed at reasonable provider rates. Kids living at home are free providing the parent has an existing account.

"This is a revolutionary way for Americans to gain immediate access to quality care quickly and inexpensively without the long drive to a doctor's office and the inevitable long wait to see the physician. The online doctor can provide a diagnosis and prescriptions for treatment.

"The rapidly growing telehealth industry holds the promise of revolutionizing access to health care in much the same way that online sales revolutionized retail, solving healthcare access challenges for millions of Americans. MOD is the newest and most innovative player to join the industry," Zurman said. "Our delivery model is best-in class technically. We believe the key to success is providing a wide variety of high quality services." 

"You can be talking with a doctor almost immediately after signing up. Private practice medical groups and self-insured companies are jumping at the opportunity to take advantage of savings," Zurman said. "They also are comfortable with the security MOD provides for patient information."

"Doctors, insurers and investors are all interested," Zurman said. "But in the end, it's all about the patient who stands to significantly benefit. We keep that uppermost in our minds, every day."

Zurman, 44, is a technopreneur who was introduced to the concept of Telemedicine through another organization he co-founded in 2013.
