For those of you who don’t know, telemedicine, especially telemedicine in neurology, has been getting more and more popular in recent years. And now, with the rise of Covid-19, it has skyrocketed in popularity. Unless you live with a doctor or are showing symptoms of Covid-19, it’s not so easy to get medical care. Thanks to the Coronavirus, medical care has become virtual. While some doctors are now trying Zoom medical consultations, owners of ROKiT phones, makers of glasses-free 3D smartphones, have long been enjoying a Telemedicine app, which was exclusive to the ROKiT phones. In light of this pandemic, ROKiT announced the launch of its new telemedicine service powered by MeMD, to EVERYONE. That’s right, from now on, you won’t need a ROKiT phone to partake in their Telemedicine app.
The ROKiT Telemedicine app provides users instant access to a virtual medical consultation. Doctors can give treatment options for minor conditions and ailments such as the flu, sinus infections, respiratory infections, and more. If prescriptions are needed after the proper diagnosis has been given, medicines can be sent to the patient’s pharmacy of choice. The app is an example of the digitalization of the healthcare industry. Much like how several medical businesses make their service or product available online by hiring web designing agencies like plentyofpixels.com/websites/medical-web-design/, the ROKiT Telemedicine app has made a difference in the medical consultation process.
“Telemedicine is a vital tool to help patients get medical care, 24/7 from home or anywhere and given the current global health crisis, we wanted to extend our existing service so it’s accessible for everyone, not just our current ROKiT phones customers,” said Jonathan Kendrick, co-founder of ROKiT Phones. “ROKiT Telemedicine reduces the need for travel and minimizes the risk of exposure in doctors’ offices, hospitals, and clinics, especially useful in these unprecedented times.”
Once the app has been downloaded, users will incur a monthly subscription fee of just $9.99. All virtual doctor visits will cost users just $38.00 per visit compared to an average of $176.00 urgent care visit.
“Telehealth is needed now more than ever, especially in light of the COVID-19 crisis,” said Bill Goodwin, CEO MeMD. “We’re proud to partner with ROKiT to provide even more people with affordable and accessible medical care, anytime they choose. We’re already touching millions of lives, which just shows the service is valued and in high demand.”
