Doctor Care Anywhere partners with Benefex to provide virtual GP services through OneHub23.08.17
Doctor Care Anywhere, the doctor-founded digital healthcare company, has collaborated with Benefex, the award-winning HR technology and employee experience provider, to deliver expert healthcare services via OneHub: Benefex’s revolutionary employee experience platform. Doctor Care Anywhere will offer virtual GP services to Benefex’s impressive client base, which collectively covers over 25 different countries.
Through the partnership, Benefex clients will be offered personalised clinical care from UK qualified GPs from 8am to 10pm UK time, 365 days a year via secure, 20-minute video or phone appointments. Referrals to specialists when required come as standard. Unique to Doctor Care Anywhere is the ability to choose the GP based on name, area of expertise or gender at the point of booking. From experience the choice to select a specific GP is used in over 50% of bookings, showing that the patients really value the ability to choose who they speak to about their health concerns.
Through their Global Prescription Management Service, medication prescribed by Doctor Care Anywhere GPs can be delivered direct to the patient or collected from a local pharmacy, or GPs can provide over the counter advice depending on the country the customer is in. Access to a Health Tracking app is also included to monitor conditions, symptoms, and set medication reminders. The app is designed to improve compliance and adherence to medication, increase engagement with self-management and improve additional information for the GP during the consultation.
This partnership highlights the ability of virtual GP service Doctor Care Anywhere to provide flexible and convenient primary healthcare services. It aligns with Benefex’s commitment to provide their extensive list of corporate clients from across every sector from retail to energy with innovative, high-quality and accessible healthcare services.
Adam Mason, Consulting Director of Benefex, commented:
“Doctor Care Anywhere is a fantastic addition to our Marketplace. Extensive research has proven the inherent connection between good employee wellbeing and workplace motivation and productivity. Healthcare is an essential part of a holistic and effective employee experience programme, however one of the issues employers and employees face is having quick and easy access to that healthcare without the added stress of waiting for traditional GP appointments, and the resulting impact on their work. Doctor Care Anywhere provides a progressive and intuitive solution to that issue.”
Kate Newhouse, CEO of Doctor Care Anywhere, commented:
“We are delighted to have partnered with Benefex to offer our service across their corporate portfolio. This initiative reinforces the company’s reputation for providing market-leading employee experience programmes, and underlines our joint commitment to improve access to healthcare. Through this partnership more employers can better support their employees and their families. Enabling them to access convenient, easy and safe primary healthcare wherever they are in the world. We look forward to working with Benefex to further expand the scope and reach of our services for the benefit of both corporates and employees.”
