NEW YORK –
DocGo On-Demand has revolutionized healthcare with the launch of a mobile app that allows users to book home visits for emergency care, making high-quality healthcare easily accessible
DocGo (Nasdaq: DCGO), a leading provider of last-mile mobile health services, today announced the expansion of its groundbreaking on-demand emergency care, DocGo On-Demand, which will now serve the majority of the cities of New York, Westchester and Nassau Counties, as well as other areas of northern and central New Jersey. This technology service allows residents of New York and New Jersey to request same-day home visits and telehealth seven days a week, making high-quality, affordable care accessible at the touch of a button.
“Since launching DocGo On-Demand in February in parts of New Jersey and New York, we have provided care to a large number of patients from the comfort of their homes,” said Anthony Capone, president of DocGo. “From daily cold and flu care, routine tests and physical exams to more complex cases involving homebound elderly patients, our trained healthcare professionals provide high quality care for adults and children. With this expansion of our service area, we are providing millions more New York and New Jersey residents with access to affordable health care that comes directly to them, not the other way around.
DocGo’s innovative model of care combines home visits with telehealth consultations to provide a comprehensive service that can do more than basic telehealth alone. With both telehealth and home visits, DocGo optimizes the best modality of care based on each patient’s needs, enabling high quality care in the most efficient way possible. If, after a video visit, it is determined that in-person care is needed, DocGo will dispatch a clinician the same day. Through the use of proprietary technology, DocGo is able to provide home visits for approximately the same cost as a traditional visit to an urgent care center.
In addition to this service area expansion, the company launched its DocGo On Demand iOS app so patients can request care, view real-time visit status updates, including tracking the clinician, and view appointment history on their iPhone.
“We’ve all been reminded over the past two years that if you’re sick you shouldn’t leave your home, so we bring the care directly to the patient,” said Aaron Severs, Chief Product Officer at DocGo. “With the launch of the iOS app, we’re making it easier than ever to request an urgent home call. I use the service for my own family, and they continue to be amazed at the ease, efficiency, and the quality of care provided Seeking care at home is a much better experience, and for many, much more accessible than going to a physical urgent care center More than 20% of patients in September were repeat customers, which shows how much people love this service. Gone are the days of you sitting in a waiting room when you’re not feeling well. We’re revolutionizing the way people think about healthcare.
DocGo On-Demand clinicians can perform tests, prescribe medications, and treat many common conditions in children and adults. At the end of the service, visits are covered by the patient’s insurance or, patients pay a flat rate for their telehealth or home visit.
