“We made incredible strides in the eHealth industry in just a few years, emerging as a national leader. These new executives have the skills, experience and passion to help us grow even further and meet the demand for Stat Doctors around the country,” said Dr. Alan C. Roga, M.D., F.A.C.E.P., founder and CEO of Stat Doctors. “In addition to deep expertise in their disciplines, they each have the vision needed to support Stat Doctors’ growth while maintaining our quality and integrity.”
Stat Doctors is available as an additional health benefit through employer-provided health insurance coverage and group plans. With an average wait time of six minutes, patients can be treated for minor illnesses and common medical conditions online and over the phone, 24/7/365.
The American Telemedicine Association estimates more than 10 million Americans directly benefited from telemedicine over the past year, and this number is expected to more than double by 2016. Additionally, a survey from global analytics firm Towers Watson says 37 percent of midsize and large employers anticipate offering telemedicine services in 2015 as a low-cost alternative to face-to-face visits for nonemergency issues.
“More companies and insurance carriers are adopting eHealth solutions to not only save money, but provide patients with increased convenience and quality care,” Dr. Roga added. “At Stat Doctors, we strive to continue our efforts to pioneer the way virtual health care is delivered, offering high-quality eVisits that replicate the traditional patient-doctor relationship, yet at a much more affordable rate.”
