"We're excited to build on our vision for telehealth by expanding our reach as an organization through the Exchange. The Exchange allows us to make our providers available to patients where they might not otherwise have immediate access to Intermountain Healthcare, and the high standards of care we bring to all of our telehealth interactions. It's an exciting opportunity to be able to establish relationships with new patients through telehealth, and continue to elevate the standard of care delivered over technology," said Dr. William Daines, Medical Director for Connect Care, Intermountain Healthcare. 

Intermountain Healthcare has won several awards for their telehealth initiatives, which are focused on providing affordable access to high-quality care no matter where patients are located.

Named a Frost & Sullivan "Product Innovation of the Year," the Exchange allows healthcare organizations, for the first time ever, to redistribute their services online to new patient populations. Healthcare providers – such as health systems, health plans, employers, and retailers – can connect and exchange services with one another, instantly, online.

"The Exchange makes doing the right thing for patients a good thing for business," said Dr. Roy Schoenberg, CEO, American Well. "It enables providers to redistribute their telehealth services to more patients and allows health plans to connect their members online to established provider brands. Simply put – providers see more visits and more business, and patients get top-notch care without leaving their couch. We are excited to welcome Intermountain's trusted providers to this dynamic new marketplace."  

The Exchange was launched in May 2016 with the first named partners to enter it; Cleveland Clinic, LiveHealth Online from Anthem, and Nemours Children's Health System. For more information on the Exchange, please visit: https://www.americanwell.com/exchange/
