Cambridge, MA - While the number of online health care services is growing, most consumers have their own personal doctors and feel comfortable consulting them directly for their health needs. However, there are times when it is inconvenient or impractical to get to the doctor, and patients have relied on phone calls with their doctor to triage their medical ailments, or for consultative visits that do not require a ‘hands-on’ visit.

Now many of the nation’s top healthcare networks including Massachusetts General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Joslin Diabetes Center and Boston Children's Hospital are providing their doctors and patients with an alternative to the phone consult with virtual doctor visits using video on demand from their personal PCs,

laptops, tablets and or smartphones. Video doctor visits are not new, they have existed in one form or another for the past 20 years, but these have typically been prescheduled, clinic to clinic and required expensive, dedicated hardware to use. Today, patients can now access their own providers on-demand at any time, anywhere and using any device.

SBR Health is making virtual visits a reality by enabling the large-scale deployment of virtual visit programs through sophisticated software that enables health providers to handle the call flow and management of patients virtually. Patients at participating healthcare delivery organizations can now access the SBR iOS application, VirtualVisit, to connect with their doctor. Providers also benefit with the ability to be anywhere for the consult, which is important as often physicians’ schedules are invariable and often patient visits may need to be delayed. More importantly, the iOS app allows the patient and provider to connect for scheduled appointments as well as ad hoc care needs, such as urgent consults outside normal clinic hours.
