HealthSparq, a leading provider of healthcare transparency solutions for health insurers, announced it has signed an agreement with MDLIVE to offer telehealth services through its transparency platform to health plans and employers across the nation.
MDLIVE is a leading telehealth provider of online and on-demand healthcare delivery services and software, giving its users access to 24/7/365 online video or telephone consultations with board-certified internal medicine, emergency medicine, family practice and pediatric physicians.
"Telehealth offers a perfect addition to HealthSparq's integrated provider directory and will allow health plan members and employees to search for and visit doctors in a virtual setting," said HealthSparq President Scott Decker. "These simple and effective consultations can be done for a fraction of a physical office visit, which is beneficial to employers and health insurers looking to cut healthcare costs."
HealthSparq has seen an increase in demand from its health plan clients and their members for more reasonably priced medical services. Telehealth is an innovative addition to HealthSparq's services and its focus on giving consumers a way to shop for lower cost quality medical services. The company selected MDLIVE because of the quality of their services and their commitment to creating a superior customer experience.
MDLIVE offers the nation's largest telehealth network, specializing in online and on-demand healthcare delivery services with fully integrated software that allows information to be easily captured and transferred to a patient's primary physician. MDLIVE physicians are state-licensed, U.S. Board Certified and credentialed following national credentialing guidelines and have an average of 15 years of practical experience.
"This relationship is an excellent opportunity for MDLIVE to work with the leading transparency vendor for some of the largest independent health plans across the nation," said Randy Parker, CEO of MDLIVE. "And MDLIVE and HealthSparq will work together to build new integrated product modules targeting cost-conscious employers and plans using the power of combining telehealth with transparency product modules."
