A new initiative from AllWays Health Partners and Partners HealthCare is bringing something novel to telehealth services. Using the software platform from Teladoc Health, Partners HealthCare on Demand is the first solution to provide convenient, high quality urgent care telehealth services from world-class Partners clinicians. Managed by Partners Connected Health in collaboration with Partners Community Physicians Organization and AllWays Health Partners, the service links patients with providers who can deliver superior care for routine illnesses and injuries through secure online or mobile-accessible interactive video visits. Post-visit summaries are then integrated into the patient’s electronic medical record.
This unique service is one of Partners’ collaborative efforts aimed at improving patient engagement and access to care. It also demonstrates the opportunities for collaboration between Partners and AllWays Health Partners.
“This will be a big part of our care delivery strategy, and we expect usage to increase in the future,” notes Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, Vice President, Connected Health. “This is an important step toward fully integrated care delivery.”
