A group of local medical professionals have launched the MyHouseCall app. Its intention is to provide users with an alternative to going to the doctor’s office, the emergency room, or an urgent care center. The app was founded by Michael Cole and his brother Eric. Dr. Ritz.
Today’s busy lifestyles, work, social obligations, and dozens of other responsibilities can make it difficult to get medical care when and where people need it.
For example, [if] a working mom wakes up in the morning, and her child has a high fever, it would be far more convenient for her to have someone come out to her house and see her child and be able to phone in the prescription
MyHouseCall team wanted to address this need by providing care via either a telemedicine call or a visit to the patient's’ home or work.
MyHouseCall team collaborated with Mobisoft to build a robust on-demand telehealth app platform that connects patients with medical providers for convenient and affordable care.
This app brings the convenience of healthcare right to a patient’s home by connecting them with trained and trusted medical professionals. The app-based service provides video house calls statewide in Pennsylvania, and if patients reside in the city of Pittsburgh they have the option for traditional house call visits as well. These services are private, convenient, and cost effective. Users can simply create an account, add basic demographic details and medical history and get started in a few taps.
MyHouseCall combines the best of the old (house calls) with the best of the new (video visits) for seamless on-demand telehealth services.
All video, audio and text communications between patients and doctors meet the stringent HIPAA standards.
The app makes it possible to securely share notes, documents, and files between patients and care providers during calls.
Patients can easily schedule an appointment with a doctor for either a video call or a house visit.
Patients can pay for the availed telehealth services right from the app using one of many payment methods.
