SAN FRANCISCO – HeyDoctor has launched an app that allows its doctors to prescribe low-cost treatment over text for many common ailments. “I’ve had patients sit for hours in a waiting room for basic issues that required only a couple of minutes,” said Dr. Brendan Levy, co-creator of the app, in a statement. “I knew there had to be a better way to connect with my patients.” The goal of the app is to provide immediate access to treatment for people and to bring health care to people who struggle to find reliable, in-person care, including patients in remote locations and those who are underserved by the current health care infrastructure. The app is currently live in 19 states and will be rolling out in 10 more by early next year. HeyDoctor is currently focusing on direct-to-consumer primary and urgent care, and has also secured enterprise deals to license its electronic medical record platform under Software as a Service (SaaS) agreements. Additionally, the company is cultivating technology partnerships with health systems and payers.
