EliteHealth announces partnership with InRoomMD
November 09, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News(November 9, 2009) Miami, FL – EliteHealth.MD, one of the fastest growing preventive medicine practices in the country, has selected InRoomMD to provide all EliteHealth and myEliteHealth members with immediate access to quality medical care, administered in the comfort and privacy of the member's hotel room, temporary residence or home. Both organizations specialize in providing patients with a personalized level of care, not found in most healthcare organizations.
Under the InRoomMD program, Elite Health members who are traveling or away from their primary care physician for an extended period of time receive concierge-style healthcare services from American-trained, board certified physicians. Members are provided with easy access to a qualified InRoomMD physician 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, who will assess their medical condition and provide treatment options. The range of services include: 24 hour-a-day access to telephone and in-room consultations by a network physician, referrals to dental and chiropractic specialists, delivery of medicines commonly prescribed for acute conditions, availability of durable medical equipment such as oxygen tanks or wheelchairs, and replacement of eyeglasses and contact lenses.
"The new partnership offers our members the convenience, comfort and security of an on-site, on-demand healthcare alternative for business and leisure travelers that prefer not to waste time in a hospital emergency room or urgent care facility for routine diagnosis or treatment of acute conditions", says Dr. Schnur, co-founder of EliteHealth.
The in-room visits and other services offered by InRoomMD are covered by most insurance plans, making it a great alternative to emergency room visits. The service is currently available in over 40 North American cities.
Medical care away from home can be inconvenient and expensive. This partnership focuses on providing hassle free medical care for members.
