With Virtual ERs you connect directly with an emergency room and you only interact with highly trained Emergency Room staff. Get medical care when it is convenient for you, without leaving your school, office, business, factory, prison system, warehouse, etc.
Virtual ERs offers organizational plans for on-demand Telemedicine consultations via phone or online video when you need it, wherever you are and at a fraction of the cost of a clinic or emergency room visit. We can connect to any business, school, prison system or even an isolated remote location that might require an emergency consultation. Our American Board Certified Virtual ERs physicians provide high quality emergency room level telemedicine consultations and will also provide a treatment plan that may include a prescription. Our objective is to fill the needs of an organization and the patients who require convenient, fast, inexpensive quality care.
Employees or students who leave work or school to visit an emergency room or urgent care clinic for non-emergency medical care are a huge burden on the employer or school, the healthcare system itself, employee or student and their families. Virtual ERs is a convenient, efficient and rapid solution that drives down healthcare costs for health plans, employers, unions, schools and patients. Who else is better at understanding and decoding their symptoms and diagnosing and guiding them than ER physicians? Employees or students who have a simple problem that can be taken care of with a prescription are covered, but what if they have a true emergency? The Virtual ERs encounter provides the best process to deliver the best and most efficient care to the patient or guide them in the safest and most appropriate direction.
These same individuals don’t have to wait days for an appointment Prescriptions can be called, emailed or faxed to the patient’s pharmacy of choice, saving them even more time off work. Telemedicine is becoming a more important aspect in the healthcare industry and has been heralded as a potential savior for heavily over-burdened healthcare systems across the globe.
With Telemedicine systems, doctors can examine and discuss with patients their cases “in person” from thousands of miles away. Virtual ERs can easily access patients in hard to reach places, including isolated or remote areas, prisons and large metropolitan areas.
When timing is critical, limited emergency care can be provided in real-time and on demand, without the cost, delays and complications that come with transferring patients.
When costly and inconvenient transfers and travel are reduced, the burden is not only lowered for doctors and hospitals. Patients and families also benefit at the time they need it most.
With Virtual ERs you call directly into an emergency room, you connect directly with highly trained Emergency Room staff when it is convenient for you, all from the comfort of your home or office. When you call all other telemedicine providers you are often talking to a retired healthcare provider sitting at home or an empty room with teleconferencing equipment referring to his books giving you advice.
There is no other telemedicine program that connects you directly to a US (Houston, Texas) licensed live emergency center. A live well trained emergency center is the acute care expert. Who else is better at understanding, triaging, decoding your symptoms and diagnosing or guiding you? All other telemedicine programs utilize family practice, specialists or other primary care physicians that will refer to the emergency room when they have questions regarding the possibility of a more dangerous problem. They call on us when they have questions. Our program completely bypasses this step.
The emergency room staff is best trained to decide on actual severity of symptoms and whether these symptoms represent a true emergency that requires immediate treatment in an emergency room, a doctor’s office the next day or can simply be treated over the phone.
By requesting a telemedicine from an emergency room, you speak to veteran experienced emergency staff. If they feel you need to be seen immediately in an ER, you can even come directly to the Virtual ERs hub location called Bellaire ER and be seen immediately and by the same provider you spoke to during the telemedicine encounter. We will even deduct what you spent during your telemedicine encounter when you visit our location. If a patient has any questionable or dangerous symptoms, the decision whether the patient should be seen immediately, seen next week in a doctor’s office or even handled in a brief telemedicine encounter can be made immediately. This type of triage system is the most efficient at protecting the patients and guiding them to the most appropriate management track.
