TouchCare telehealth app comes to Android


TouchCare is going beyond iOS users, bringing its telehealth service to the Android community. The free to download app allows healthcare providers to set up a profile and invite a patient to connect for a secure video call in minutes.

TouchCare video calls can be made over both cellular networks and Wi-Fi through the app’s HIPAA-compliant secure platform. The application boast an easy-to-grasp user interface that provides physicians with increased control and added flexibility with availability and communication settings.

TouchCare works both with solo practitioners and providers in large clinics or hospitals.The new version of the iOS app and its Android counterpart include new patient access control settings, one-click email invites to connect with patients, options to upload informed consent and privacy documents, and unique clinic-specific Invitation Codes that allow patients to connect with all the providers in a practice at once. Patients on their end got quick links to providers in their network, automatic appointment reminders and push notifications for incoming calls.

“Using TouchCare makes it incredibly easy to offer real-time, personal video as an alternative to patients always needing to come into the office,” said Dov Cohn, SVP product development at TouchCare. “Since TouchCare is a free app, providers who are unfamiliar with telemedicine or mobile video calls can easily try it out and learn how to incorporate video into their practice. The key is that TouchCare connects people with their own physicians, marrying both convenience and continuity of care.”
