CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In the face of increasing health care costs and delivery-model changes, HealthRight, the most comprehensive ehealth services provider, is reaffirming its commitment to delivering programs and services that allow businesses and their employees to access convenient, affordable, and high quality health care. HealthRight does this by providing patients with unlimited, 24/7 access to licensed nurses, on-demand teleconsults with U.S. Board-Certified physicians, and savings of up to 60% or more on prescriptions, lab tests, dental care, and more. HealthRight gives consumers peace of mind when they need it most – at work, in the middle of the night, on holidays, or at home with a new child.

HealthRight recognizes that while technology can help make the health care experience more efficient, consumers prefer a human touch when it comes to receiving health care. That is where HealthRight's licensed nurses come in – available 24/7, nurses guide every patient to the right next step – whether that's to talk to a doctor, go to the emergency room or just monitor the situation at home.  In addition, HealthRight nurses follow each patient through their entire course of care including clinical intake, care coordination, and personal follow up. Understanding that emergencies, fevers and colds don't always happen during "office hours," HealthRight services are available to patients 24/7/365, from anywhere.

"There are many ehealth providers in the market, but HealthRight is the only one that enables the true promise of population health management that is both personalized and scalable," said John Palumbo, CEO, HealthRight. "From the moment patients call, our licensed nurses stay with them every step of the way – reviewing the doctor's treatment plan, coordinating next steps, and making sure that they get the follow-up care that they need. Our unique care coordination provides a personalized experience, resulting in higher utilization rates and improved patient satisfaction."

In addition to working directly with consumers, HealthRight has created two affordable and flexible programs for employers, iCare and iCare+, to meet the needs of any size business, allowing employers to augment their current benefits plans. iCare allows employees to connect with doctors and nurses conveniently – from anywhere, and whenever they need it – through free and unlimited 24/7 access to licensed nurses, on-demand teleconsults with U.S. Board-Certified physicians, and convenient access to follow-up care, such as prescriptions, lab tests, or imaging studies.

iCare+ provides comprehensive concierge-level care and includes all of the benefits of iCare, plus medical bill advocacy services, dental, vision, and hearing discounts, and an online portal that includes direct patient communication with doctors, pediatricians, and other specialists, health reference video library, and the ability to track personal iCare+ activity.

"There is increased evidence that companies with healthy employees overall perform better and are more productive than those with employees who are not," said Dr. Ray Fabius, Chief Medical Advisor, HealthRight. "As health care costs continue to skyrocket, and more and businesses elect to go with high deductible health care plans, companies will need services like HealthRight to augment their benefits plans and provide added value to their employees, ensuring they have a healthier, happier, and more productive workplace."

HealthRight serves all 50 states, providing consumers and employees sponsored by their employers, with on-demand access to licensed nurses and a network of U.S. Board-Certified physicians, all available 24/7.  HealthRight's extensive network includes pharmacies, labs, imaging centers and other outside resources. With its proprietary engagement methodology reaching and educating consumers, various programs, and flexible pricing models that work for any size client, HealthRight effectively engages patients, increasing program utilization, and saving time and money while delivering high quality health care.
