ATD Health Network Inc. to Provide On-Demand Doctor House Calls for Its American and Canadian Users

Toronto and San Francisco-based medical question and answer platform Ask The Doctor is adding on-demand doctor house calls to its list of services to be available to their users.

“We are excited to be able to have top doctors here in North America be able to come right to your front door,” said, Prakash Chand, President and CEO of ATD Health Network Inc. “Our medical Q & A platform receives thousands of questions everyday and we have seen a large request from our users for house call visits. Our research has also found that sending doctors to infirm older patients houses, keeps patients out of the hospital and can drastically reduce medical costs. These were the two biggest factors for us to make the push to offer this service.”

Ask The Doctor will roll our out their on-demand house call visit service in Toronto, Ontario, Canada this November, where OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan) will cover 100% of the visits. The company will be expanding into Boston in January of 2016 and then continuing its expansion into every major American city with plans of partnering with Medicare.

“As much as we love technology, in medicine its impossible to always just communicate with patients by text chat, emails, phone or video. Those are great primary tools to speak to a patient, but sometimes that personal in-person interaction is needed and that is what our house call service will provide,” said, Dr. Suneel Sharman, Co-Cheif Medical Officer of ATD Health Network Inc.

Ask The Doctor is the worlds largest medical question and answer platform with over 500,000+ users and 35,000+ registered doctors. Users ask a doctor personalized medical questions and connect with a general physician or specialist of their choice by phone, email, text chat or video chat.
