The Virtual Visit: Primary Care & Telemedicine
Oscar is transforming the way telemedicine is practiced and integrated into healthcare. How can we make a patient’s life healthier and easier at a lower cost but retain high quality? Our app allows an easy call or message to an MD 24/7. Unlike other platforms, our vPCPs are integrated with the local Oscar Clinic. Need to be seen in person? Our vPCPs alert clinic staff, are able to order labs and start the visit. Afterwards we check back in via messaging. Did the treatment plan work? As the insurer, Oscar has a wealth of information on each member. Every televisit is closer to a primary care visit. We know your medical history, allergies, and what preventative procedures or vaccinations you may need soon. In this panel, our experts will explore how Oscar is leading the way in telemedicine.
