Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
OnlineUSADoctors.com, one of the leaders in the virtual doctor industry, has developed a new, innovative and economical full-service alternative to costly urgent care and emergency room visits, which present an unduly large burden on employers and consumers.
The virtual doctor industry, known as telemedicine, presents a unique answer to the problem of skyrocketing healthcare and medical health insurance costs, which faces the nation as it heads into a new chapter in history. It utilizes today's technology, with video conferencing, phones, webcams, and other secure communications technology as the vehicle to bridge communication and provide care to patients who are not in the same location as the medical provider. OnlineUSADoctors.com offers comprehensive healthcare to its patients by providing personalized medical services, including proprietary alternative health supplements and exclusive diagnostic tools.
These options are especially important in light of the the changes facing the medical health insurance industry. Obamacare, a nickname for the new socialized national health insurance plan which has been passed by Congress, will create a massive demand for medical services without providing for the personnel and resources necessary to meet that demand. Fewer medical doctors are graduating from medical school than ever before, further exacerbating the scarcity of qualified medical personnel. The population of the U.S. will double by 2050, causing an exponential growth in insured consumers seeking services.
According to the Centers for Disease Control Hospital Utilization annual reports, visits to urgent care doctors and emergency rooms have doubled over the past 10 years. Emergency room visits cost over 1000x more than regular physician office visits. In addition, according to the NHAMCS, only 16% of emergency room visits require acute care. Since lab results are first and foremost to diagnosing symptoms and providing treatment, many visits could be avoided by providing consumers with the opportunity to undergo laboratory testing, ask medical questions of an online doctor and/or allow her to diagnose symptoms virtually.
According to BCC Research, the global telemedicine market is projected to increase to $27.3 billion in 2016, up from $11.6 billion in 2011. OnlineUSADoctors.com is one of the leaders in this market, and one of the only full-service telemedicine and medical health insurance alternative platforms available in the U.S. It provides cost-effective, first-level medical support to patients by remaining open 7 days a week from 4AM - 8PM PST, with after-hour care available. OnlineUSADoctors.com also offers prescription-grade alternative health supplements specially formulated to treat common medical conditions. These proprietary herbal formulas are available only through OnlineUSADoctors.com.
For routine medical care, papers are processed via e-mail and video or phone consultations are scheduled via the OnlineUSADoctors.com portal. During the consultation, medical doctors may order laboratory tests, prescribe medication, or make a referral to a local physician for follow-up care. Medical doctors also use tools such as the My OnlineUSADoctors Health Quiz, a cutting-edge diagnostic tool which uses the latest medical research to analyze responses to customized medical questions, often identifying underlying medical conditions which were missed by previous clinicians. Through offering such comprehensive medical health services, all provided by board-certified medical doctors, the annual cost of health coverage for most consumers will be cut by an estimated minimum of $2,000 per person.
