MDLIVE is a telehealth provider focused on digital delivery of high-quality, convenient, and cost-efficient medical care. The company provides consumers, health plans, health systems and self-insured employers with 24/7/365 access to board-certified doctors, pediatricians and licensed therapists via secure online video, phone or a smartphone app.[1]

Business[edit]

MDLIVE's telemedicine services are designed to replace more expensive and less convenient ER or urgent care visits for non-emergency issues, including sore throats, asthma, skin rash, fever, and more.[2] MDLIVE also offers virtual behavioral health therapy through video or phone, where licensed therapists consult with patients on issues such as marital problems, child behavior & learning issues, financial hardship, and coping with loss & grief.

All virtual medical consultations are conducted through a HIPAA and PHI-compliant platform. In addition to allowing patients to talk to a doctor from home or on the go, and if necessary, obtain an e-prescription, payers and providers can use MDLIVE to collect and share clinical data from patient medical records, lab results, and in-home biometric devices for real-time risk assessments, wellness advice, diagnosis, and treatment.
