HealthTap Prime Launches in Texas to Connect 28-Million Residents with The Right Care, at the Right Time, and at the Right Cost
Date:5/30/2017

HealthTap, the world’s first Global Health Practice, with the industry’s largest network of top doctors, announced today that HealthTap Prime is coming to Texas to deliver access to live virtual consults through video, audio, and chat. Starting June 1, the subscription service used all over the world can connect Texans to primary-care doctors 24/7 through smartphones, tablets, and personal computers from home or on-the-go.

HealthTap Prime in Texas:

  • Texans can get care over video, text, and voice from an in-state doctor they’ve never met in person.
  • Patients don’t need another healthcare provider present during virtual consults.
  • Patients can easily discover a Texas-based HealthTap doctor online.
  • The required patient consent form is built into the HealthTap app experience streamlining the process of sending medical records to the patient’s primary care doctor.

“HealthTap has saved time and money for millions of people all over the world, and received more than 25,000 notes from users saying HealthTap saved their life or the life of a loved one.” said Ron Gutman, CEO HealthTap. “Texans deserve great care and we’re excited to lead the way in providing it today.”

Texas has 28-million residents with 3-million living in rural areas known to have doctor shortages. Texas ranks 45th in the nation for the number of physicians per population according to the Texas Medical Association.

“I’m excited that my colleagues of licensed doctors in Texas and I can make healthcare more accessible to residents who will benefit from expert care at the right time, in the right place, at the right cost. This is especially game-changing for patients in rural areas who have a hard time getting to the doctor’s office,”said Dr. Jeffrey Livingston, who has been a doctor on HealthTap for over 6 years. “As a gynecologist, I am required to provide patients with guidance on follow-up care. And I need to send a record to her primary care provider within 72 hours. This is really easy to do through HealthTap’s technology.”

Employers in Texas will no longer be limited in their use of HealthTap’s Compass application geared toward managing their employees’ health care needs. People working for large self-insured employers will now have access to live virtual consultations from HealthTap Prime doctors and a comprehensive set of tools to manage their health including the world’s largest library of doctor-created health knowledge and Dr. A.I.

“Thousands of doctors from Texas have already joined HealthTap’s Medical Expert network. Today we’re thrilled to open our door to tens of thousands of additional doctors who are passionate about changing the way care is delivered and accessed. We’ve made it easier for doctors in the Lone Star State to join our global network and comply with the new state law as they help millions of Texans benefit from virtual care,” said Dr. Geoff Rutledge, HealthTap’s Chief Medical Officer. “This is very exciting for patients and doctors alike.”
