HealthTap, which dubs itself the world's first Health Operating System powered by the largest network of interactive doctors and Artificial Intelligence, launched HealthTap for Good — a nonprofit initiative to bring its premium medical services to disadvantaged people and populations around the world.
The initiative will provide free-of-charge access to premium health services for individuals in need, as well as to medical providers and nonprofit organizations who take care of underprivileged populations worldwide.
Individuals can receive free virtual consultations with HealthTap Prime physicians via video, voice, or text. Moreover, doctors operating in low-income areas can obtain free-of-charge licenses to HealthTap Concierge, the company's SaaS offering that establishes a "Virtual Practice" connecting the doctor with patients using video, text, or voice calls.
Also under the initiative, nonprofit organizations serving underprivileged populations will be able to get a complimentary license to HOPES, HealthTap's proprietary Health Operating System, that will enable them to provide access to more affordable care to large underserved populations.
"In the past couple years, we've also launched premium paid services for individuals seeking world class concierge medicine, and have grown to provide enterprise software, technology, and tools to physicians, providers and payers worldwide. With this tremendous growth, comes responsibility to give back in any way we can," Ron Gutman, HealthTap's founder and CEO, said in a statement. "As we do better, we're committed to giving more to those in need. That's why we created HealthTap for Good."
Individuals, providers, or nonprofit organizations in need of HealthTap for Good are invited to apply to receive immediate access to HealthTap's top doctors and suite of apps and services.
According to the World Health Organization, half of the world's population lacks full coverage of essential health services.
