American Well and BlueCross BlueShield Team to Spread Telemedicine Access
Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Boston-based telemedicine provider American Well announced Tuesday that it will partner with Blue Cross Blue Shield health plans in an attempt to improve their service of providing immediate doctor access to payers' customers.
The idea behind the partnership is that physicians will be able to go to the patient instead of making patients wait to be seen. Patients can see doctors immediately, on a 24/7 schedule, via their smartphone or at home.
