JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TriageLogic, a nationwide telemedicine company, announces a new telehealth product for businesses. Continuwell® will decrease employee sick days and decrease health care costs by providing 24/7 on-demand nurses and doctors to evaluate callers and determine appropriate care. Continuwell differentiates itself with its free nurse-first model, where nurses use doctor-written guided protocols to evaluate callers and determine the care needed to resolve their symptoms. Nurses provide the necessary care without the need of a doctor in 3 out of 4 cases, saving the cost of a telehealth doctor visit and making the system more affordable.
Continuwell®, with its network of experienced registered nurses and doctors, increases the utilization of telehealth and decreases unnecessary ER visits. This innovative service complements and enhances any existing wellness or telemedicine offering already in place, or offers a turnkey solution. According to Continuwell CEO, Charu Raheja, PhD, "One of the biggest challenges for telehealth is to get people to actually make the call. First, there is an expense to calling a doctor, and second, people are intimated to call when they are not sure if their symptoms are serious. Our nurses eliminate that barrier, because they are free to call and nurses are traditionally the first line of care in medicine."
Continuwell nurses are available for free to all members. They direct employees to the appropriate level of care, with many callers receiving a home care plan without the need for a doctor. If the caller's symptoms require a doctor evaluation or a prescription, the nurses transfer the caller to one of our U.S. Board Certified doctors, or the company's preferred telemedicine doctor company. Continuwell is a 24/7/365 service, that is even available during holidays and weekends.
The Continuwell mobile application and website portal make it easy for people to request a call for themselves or a family member. Ravi Raheja, MD, Medical Director for Continuwell, adds, "In addition to being easy to use, the app includes access to a trusted resource of health information. Companies can also coordinate events with notifications and an events calendar."
Continuwell offers rates for businesses and organizations of any size and can customize a solution to fit any client's needs. Businesses with no health insurance benefits or self-pay insurance models can significantly cut costs due to unnecessary medical expenses. Continuwell offers customized packages developed for various types of businesses, including employers, hotels, universities, and independent living facilities.
