As a result, employers will be able to offer the convenient Doctor On Demand telemedicine service to their members with a single sign-on through HealthMine’s Personal Clinical Engagement (PCE) platform. The solutions can help employers improve utilization rates for telemedicine using a powerful social-behavioral economics engine, which engages people to choose the most effective, lowest cost healthcare option at the right time through incentives and rewards.
“Patients love the convenience and ease of Doctor On Demand. With no PEPM and high utilization rates, we reduce healthcare costs while increasing employee satisfaction,” said Adam Jackson, co-founder and CEO, Doctor On Demand. “Our integration with HealthMine will further help companies provide their employees with medical treatment that is impactful, efficient, and cost-effective.”
HealthMine will begin offering the Doctor On Demand service immediately as part of its platform. Employers will be able to offer the service in a number of customizable ways, with the opportunity to connect the offering to customizable incentives and rewards that promote utilization and drive higher engagement.
Telemedicine has the potential to deliver more than $6 billion in healthcare savings per year to U.S. companies, according to global analytics company Towers Watson.
