The current pandemic will upend how Americans think about health care. Because of that telehealth and telemedicine will continue to be an integral part of day-to-day life
Today electronic devices have become more important than ever in all aspects of life. With this in mind, the ROKiT Group, creators of ROKiT Phones, the glasses-free 3D smartphones, announced today the launch of a new telemedicine service powered by MeMD.
Previously only available for owners of a ROKiT phone, this telemedicine service is now available via web or as a free app for any mobile phone user, and can be downloaded via the iTunes App Store and Google Play for Android store.
“Telemedicine is a vital tool to help patients get medical care, 24/7 from home or anywhere and given the current global health crisis, we wanted to extend our existing service so it’s accessible for everyone, not just our current ROKiT phones customers,” said Jonathan Kendrick, co-founder of ROKiT Phones. “ROKiT Telemedicine reduces the need for travel and minimizes the risk of exposure in doctors’ offices, hospitals and clinics, so even as some states begin to lift restrictions, many are still nervous about going out, so our service is especially useful right now.”
The current pandemic will upend how Americans think about health care. Because of that telehealth and telemedicine will continue to be an integral part of day-to-day life.
The ROKiT Telemedicine app provides users instant access to a virtual medical consultation to give treatment options for minor conditions and ailments such as the flu, sinus infections, respiratory infections, and much more. If prescriptions are needed after the proper diagnosis has been given, medicines can be sent to the patient’s pharmacy of choice.
Once the app has been downloaded, users will incur a monthly subscription fee of just $9.99. All virtual doctor visits will then cost users just $38 per visit compared to an average $176 urgent care visit.
“Telehealth is needed now more than ever, especially in light of the COVID-19 crisis,” said Bill Goodwin, CEO MeMD. “We’re proud to partner with ROKiT to provide even more people with affordable and accessible medical care, anytime they choose. We’re already touching millions of lives, which just shows the service is valued and in high demand.”
