TeleHealth and MedStar Care: MedStar eVisit

As part of MedStar Health's commitment to innovation and their patients, I was pleased to see the launch of MedStar eVisit for MHRI associates. The pilot for this program was launched earlier in the year with great results. Providing convenient access to services for those in our area is a key element to the growth of MedStar Health and MHRI.

MedStar eVisit technology provides 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week, 365 days-a-year, access to services via a computer, tablet or smartphone. Services are currently available for treating common illnesses. MedStar eVisit services are in-network for associates and their dependents enrolled in MedStar Select or MedStar’s CareFirst medical plans. Primary care copays apply to each MedStar eVisit—MedStar Select members: $0 or CareFirst (coverage through MedStar) members: $15. Associates who do not have medical coverage through MedStar can still use MedStar eVisit for $49 per visit.

You can register online at www.MedStar-eVisit.com or download the download the iOS or Android mobile app, “MedStar eVisit".

I registered using my iPad and the process was easy and efficient. It's great to see MedStar taking technology in stride to help their patients, especially when those patients are also MedStar associates.
