healthPERX expands service with eDocAmerica tie-up

Telehealth program healthPERX has formed a partnership with eDocAmerica aimed at expanding its services through the addition of “board-certified health specialists” for what it claims is nearly every medical need.

The organization says the tie-up with eDocAmerica (Little Rock, AR, USA) – described as an “online doctor ‘house call’ for routine medical questions and information – will make it the most convenient and cost-effective telehealth program currently available in the US.

For a monthly fee, healthPERX (Birmingham, AL, USA) provides round-the-clock access to doctors and health specialists via a mobile app, the telephone and the web.

“Our expanded services with eDocAmerica has filled a void in today’s healthcare challenges in what is becoming a consumer-driven industry,” said Jeff Marks, healthPERX’s chief executive. “While basic telehealth is becoming an emerging trend, our combined services takes healthcare to an even higher level.”

healthPERX says a high number of Fortune 500 companies and consumers now rely on its telehealth program for convenience, savings and increased workplace productivity, and that current and new members will be able to use its improve service for no additional cost.

“This partnership offers a simple, convenient and innovative healthcare solution for both sides of the coin – acute care for common illnesses and routine consultations for ongoing care that holistically serves patients for an overall healthier lifestyle,” said Marks.
