Telehealth: Easy Access to Care
The nation faces a shortage of primary care and specialist physicians, which means many Americans can’t access the health expertise they need locally.
UnitedHealth Group companies are changing the way patients and doctors interact. With NowClinicSM online care from OptumHealth, (a UnitedHealth Group company), patients can visit with a physician on their computers using secure live chat and even converse face-to-face using webcams. Similarly, in partnership with Cisco we recently launched Connected CareSM - the first, national telehealth network that will connect patients to leading primary care physicians, specialists and hospitals, regardless of location.
