Cellular One, CCA, and iSelectMD Announce Implementation of the First mHealth Program in the US Wireless Market

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Cellular One has partnered with iSelectMD, and Competitive Carriers Association (CCA) to launch an mHealth service, iSelectMD Mobile, for its mobile subscribers.  Beginning today, Cellular One customers in Texas and Louisiana can enjoy real-time access to advice from healthcare professionals for non-emergency/non-life threatening illnesses.

Using their wireless device, with iSelectMD Mobile, Cellular One customers can speak with a Board-Certified Physician via voice or video services like Skype or FaceTime to resolve everyday illnesses or consult on health questions.  To get started, they simply need to contact the iSelectMD Care Center from their device.  Cellular One provides free access to the service, with customers paying $29.99 per consult, a significant savings over the costs of seeking treatment through a doctor's office or emergency room.  The iSelectMD service is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

"We are delighted to partner with iSelectMD for this extremely valuable service for our customers," said Jonathan Foxman, President/CEO of Cellular One. "Cellular One customers can now access care in real time and reduce or eliminate unnecessary costs and travel when their primary care physician is unavailable.  And thanks to the cooperation of iSelectMD and CCA, this program is the first of its kind to be offered to wireless customers in the United States."

CCA President & CEO, Steven K. Berry said, "Having access to unique programs such as iSelectMD Mobile presents a real, very positive benefit for CCA members.  Solutions like the mHealth program are a win-win for carriers and their customers.  If you want to learn more about this program, I encourage you to speak with iSelectMD at our Global Expo, March 25-28 in San Antonio."

iSelectMD President, Michael Iaquinta said, "We are excited to be partnering with CCA to deploy an mHealth program to carriers throughout the US.  It is no secret there are challenges on the horizon in healthcare, and for Cellular One to be offering a mobile health solution to its customers says a lot about their commitment to delivering the highest quality and most innovative products and services available."
