RelyMD Launches New Subscription-Based Telehealth Services to Provide On-Demand Access to Healthcare Providers
Troy University Introduced as Partner with Monthly Services Now Available for Students
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – (March 8, 2021) – RelyMD, a digital health company that provides on-demand telehealth services, announced a new way for patient groups to receive care. Through its MYidealDOCTOR brand, organizations can now provide their group members with a monthly subscription service available at an affordable rate.
Additionally, RelyMD is excited to welcome Troy University as the first partner of the new subscription service. Troy University, an Alabama university with 4 campuses and online courses, will provide all students with the option of a monthly subscription to Troy University Virtual Care. For just $10.50 per month, students and their families will have unlimited, 24/7 access to MYidealDOCTOR’s US-board certified physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners.
“Troy University is honored to partner with MYidealDOCTOR to provide affordable and convenient telehealth opportunities for our students and their families during the current health crisis,” said Phenix City Campus Vice Chancellor, Dr. Dionne Rosser-Mims. “By providing increased access to virtual healthcare options, we expand upon our robust system of student support services that enhance academic achievement and persistence to graduation.”
The MYidealDOCTOR monthly subscription solution makes it easy for organizations of any kind to provide custom services to their group members. The subscription provides members with unlimited, on-demand access to medical professionals who can treat urgent care-level healthcare needs. Providing an optional service to members whether they be employees, residents, or students gives organizations the ability to pay for only those who use the service while still providing telehealth, a healthcare resource that patients are now demanding. The monthly subscription service is highly customizable and can include:
- Custom market pricing
- Revenue-sharing opportunities
- Branded registration page
- Reporting dashboard
- Marketing resources
“Lower overall healthcare costs are a clear advantage for anyone choosing telehealth,” said David Levin, CEO of RelyMD and MYidealDOCTOR. “Troy University has taken a powerful action in creating a unique service for their students to access 24/7 care at a lower cost than typically available through emergency departments and urgent care facilities. We’re excited to be partnering with such a forward-thinking university as they look to provide additional benefits to their students during a time when it’s more important than ever.”
