SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Telecure, a provider of services to people who are looking for top quality medical care via telephone and video medical consultations, today revealed a unique payment method for urgent care patients in California through its Pay-With-A-Tweet program. Telecure is the first to provide free healthcare to patients in exchange for sharing via social media, as patients now have the option to pay for their urgent care by simply tweeting on Twitter or posting on Facebook.
Saving Patients Time and Money
People can contact Telecure and choose to consult with a medical provider through a phone or video call for a flat rate of $25 or for no cost through Pay-With-A-Tweet. Users simply call a number to check in and have the freedom to go about their daily routine. Within 10 minutes, a Telecure medical provider contacts the patient to discuss their issue and gets them started on a treatment plan. If applicable, they can then pick up any needed medication at their local pharmacy and begin the recovery process.
Building a More Efficient Healthcare System
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of ambulatory care visits in the U.S. is 1.2 billion a year. Telecure allows urgent care clinics to focus on delivering ambulatory care to the patients that need in-person attention, and treats less severe medical conditions through its simple and cost-effective application.
“In a time when Americans are struggling to understand their healthcare options, Telecure is working on developing the most convenient, affordable, and safe medical service to anyone in need of urgent care and we’re excited to be the only medical provider to give patients the option to utilize social media for free healthcare,” said Garick Hismatullin, CEO of Telecure. “We are dedicated to raising awareness of alternative ways of receiving quality healthcare and look forward to rolling out in more states in early 2014.”
