Kyle Fields - with ApproRx discusses how to leverage a transparent PBM with Physicians to expand your business:
What conditions can be treated by a telephone consultation with a physician?
You are provided access to physicians through the AmeriDoc Physician Network for the treatment of non-emergent, common conditions involving routine primary care. Specific examples include allergies, throat infections, respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, gastroenteritis, and many other every day ailments. Should a member present a case that in the judgment of the consulting physician requires further examination, the consulting physician may recommend that the patient see a primary care physician.
What are the different types of consultations
There are two different types of service: Informational Consultations (by telephone or email) and Diagnostic Consultations (only by telephone).
•Informational Consultations: Convenient, 24/7 telephone or email access to physicians for general advice and recommendations regarding routine medical conditions.
•Diagnostic Consultations: Comprehensive telephone medical consultation, often resulting in diagnosis and specific treatment recommendations. A complete medical assessment is required prior to consult. Medication may be prescribed as appropriate. These consults occur within 3 hours of the patient's requested consultation time.
•Secure Email Consultation: Secure email communication with a physician for information and advice about common conditions. Appropriate for discussing sensitive medical issues in a discreet fashion.
