MDLIVE Mobile Reinvents On-Demand Mobile Healthcare

MDLIVE, the nation’s leading provider of telehealth services and software, today announced the launch of MDLIVE Mobile for iOS, the most feature-rich, user-centric mobile app on the market today. The introduction of MDLIVE Mobile grants consumers unparalleled access to U.S. Board Certified physicians and licensed therapists from anywhere and at anytime 24x7x365.

With advanced features like MDLIVE Assist and Symptom Checker, MDLIVE Mobile puts consumers in control with direct and secure on-call video or phone consultations. Only MDLIVE offers robust provider profiles that enable consumers to choose not only the most convenient consult time but also to match them with the doctor or therapist of their choice. People can send and receive secure messages from their healthcare provider, as well as provide their complete medical history in advance for exceptional continuity of care, providing for the first truly integrated virtual health system.

"As an ER doctor, I often see patients come in for advice or treatment that could easily have been given at home, saving time and money," said Dr. Travis Stork, Chairman of the Medical Advisory Board and Emmy® nominated TV host. "What I love about MDLIVE Mobile is that it gives anyone the power to receive high-quality, round-the-clock care no matter where they are. It's bringing the house call back and helping put the 'care' back into healthcare."

MDLIVE Mobile includes a powerful set of features not available anywhere else, including the one-touch MDLIVE Assist button, which allows patients to quickly connect to one of the company’s highly skilled healthcare specialists for concierge-like assistance with scheduling appointments and answering questions about a consultation or the service in general. Symptom Checker’s visual, interactive interface gives people the ability to identify symptoms and potential causes to make sure they are making an informed decision, and the robust provider profiles give patients a choice when a consultation is desired. In addition, MDLIVE Mobile offers a comprehensive health history form that enables doctors to quickly assess the patient’s medical condition, saving valuable time and ensuring a complete and effective review. The secure message center elevates access to include private communications and email advice from both physicians and therapists.

“Telehealth today is at an inflection point where we’re seeing dramatic adoption of on-demand and on-call access to healthcare,” said Randy Parker, CEO of MDLIVE. “MDLIVE Mobile is at the forefront of this movement, empowering users with both choice of and immediate access to the patient care they need with the most advanced technology available. MDLIVE is fully focused on providing the best quality, and most accessible, healthcare at an affordable rate for all users where and when they want it.”

Designed from the ground up to be intuitive, friendly and informative, MDLIVE Mobile’s user interface sets a new standard for mobile virtual interaction, intuitive for new consumers and seamless for existing ones. Video capabilities are robust and easy to use on all 3G, LTE and WiFi wireless networks. Other benefits include an easy online payment system right at your fingertips, eliminating the complexity and hassle of today’s archaic intake systems.

"MDLIVE Mobile is one of many new exciting initiatives the company will be announcing this year to bring greater convenience and access to consumers," said John Sculley, Board of Directors Vice Chairman for MDLIVE and former CEO for Apple and Pepsi Cola. "This further proves MDLIVE's dedication to providing the best customer experience for patients, and I'm excited to be part of a rapidly growing mobile health movement that creates cost efficient and smart ways to stay healthy."

The MDLIVE app is available to both current MDLIVE members and new consumers who are looking for a consultation. The app is available now for free download at the App Store. Android OS and Windows compatibility are scheduled for later this year.
