ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Telemedicine provider SteadyMD, which delivers online continuous care and healthcare monitoring, today announced SteadyMD physicians have developed a member protocol for dealing with coronavirus concerns. SteadyMD medical assistant teams are also helping members access local resources for care in each of the 50 U.S. states.
United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended alternatives to face-to-face doctor or clinic visits to help limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus. Dr. Josh Emdur, SteadyMD chief medical officer comments, “Most telemedicine apps only offer urgent care or episodic visits. SteadyMD differs by offering primary continuous care online with a dedicated doctor. This therapeutic relationship provides primary disease prevention in the long term and augments treatment during an epidemic or other health crisis-situation.”
SteadyMD is a member-based technology company and healthcare provider. SteadyMD delivers continuous, collaborative, personalized healthcare online with board-certified doctors. Doctors see a limited number of patients in order to get to know each member and provide thorough care. Patients access their doctor through texts, calls or video chat follow-ups, from the comfort of their own homes.
“A big part of dealing with a personal health situation, is coping with anxiety,” added Emdur. "Communication with a doctor who knows you, is important. COVID-19 is at the fore-front but major healthcare problems related to chronic disease, lack of access to care and other health care challenges, can be more effectively addressed with continuous care. SteadyMD reimagines modern healthcare online.”
The SteadyMD platform provides:
- A member-centered experience with a dedicated personal doctor, online.
- The SteadyMD Matching Engine which pairs each person with a doctor aligned with the same lifestyle, medical conditions, goals, and interests.
- A secure, HIPAA-compliant app through which patients can renew prescriptions, store lab results and exchange messages with their doctor.
- Medical assistants who simplify the experience by retrieving health records from other care providers.
Built for people who do not have a primary care doctor or are looking for more convenient and personalized care, SteadyMD delivers modern, continuous healthcare, online.
SteadyMD offers three months of free membership to COVID-19 first responders. Qualified nurses, doctors and healthcare workers can access the service at SteadyMD.com/first-responders.
SteadyMD is a member-based technology company and healthcare provider. SteadyMD members and doctors pair up, collaborate and develop long-term personal relationships, online. The SteadyMD Matching Engine evaluates each new member and healthcare provider across hundreds of medical, fitness and lifestyle attributes to help spark a meaningful connection.
Headquartered in St. Louis, MO, SteadyMD offers telehealth services for Primary Care, Functional Medicine and Employers in all 50 U.S. states. For more information or to become a member, please visit https://www.steadymd.com.
