Stat Health Services

Stat Health Services Inc. is a leading e-health services company. Our STAT DOCTORS™ service provides a “virtual house call” and your employee’s immediate access to board certified emergency room physicians for the diagnosis and treatment of common minor medical conditions resulting in reduced emergency room and urgent care utilization.

 In addition to connecting a patient with a board certified ER physician, we offer our members electronic health records storage and maintenance and the electronic fulfillment of prescriptions. Our STAT DOCTORS service is optimized to use the Internet and advanced web-based and mobile technologies to deliver our e-health service.

Our national provider network is comprised of board certified emergency physicians to deliver the medical services under our STAT DOCTORS e-health service.  This high level of medical expertise and scale is unprecedented for the delivery of this type of service. We’ve validated that our medical team has the ability to dramatically increase the care and reduce your cost of service versus other options like an onsite clinic or a nurse help line.

 

STAT DOCTORS has been recognized nationally by multiple organizations for our business model and impact on the healthcare system. Recent highlights include recognition by the Center for Health Value Innovation and Frost & Sullivan’s Company of the Year for E-Health Services.

                         

 

STAT DOCTORS provides a unique solution for employers. Twenty-three percent of all patients wait six days or more before seeking care. Many live in rural areas that would require extensive travel just to seek care. According to government estimates, more than 35 million Americans live in areas underserved by physicians. Only 30% of patients have same day access to care when they need to see a doctor. And for those who can arrange to be seen, 24% wait 30 minutes or longer in doctor waiting rooms. Patients are all too familiar with the time-consuming, inconvenientprocess of trying to get care. It is frustrating and costly for your employees. When morale suffers, so does performance.

 

The cost of an emergency room visit is an estimated $2,028. Over 66% of emergency room visits are for non-emergencies. And many visits to urgent care centers result in an additional visit to an emergency room. STAT DOCTORS brings a new approach to health care, leveraging the Internet and other secured, advanced technologies like electronic health records, ePrescribing and our online eVisit portal, to bring your employees a direct path to care - when and where they need it most. 

 

 

 

 

 

STAT DOCTORS provides a company’s employees with direct and immediate access to care for common, urgent medical issues. Whether at the office or on the road, at home or on vacation - your employees will enjoy the convenience of getting care when and where they need it.

The Problem

A Strained Health Care Delivery System. In 2008, there were 123.8 million emergency room visits.The U.S. health care delivery system is strained. Based upon recent studies, the following are the major reasons:

·         There is a severe shortage of primary care physicians.

·         There is a dramatic increase in emergency room use.

·         Most patients visiting the emergency room have health insurance.

·         Most emergency room visits are for non-emergencies.

·         Privately insured patients choose the emergency room because of convenience and the lack of access to primary care physicians.

·         Emergency departments are becoming overcrowded and health care quality and patient safety are suffering.

Impact of Federal Health Care Reform. According to the U.S. Congressional Budget Office by 2014 federal health care reform will increase the number of insured by about 32 million. This dramatic increase in insured individuals is expected to place additional strain on an already over-burdened health care delivery system, especially to ER’s across the country.

The Impact to your Business. Healthcare premiums continue to grow annually by double digit increases.  To stem these increases you must decide to either cut coverage options, ask your employees to share a larger portion of the burden or both! These changes in benefits are lowering the overall health care for your employees and higher utilization of more expensive treatment options like visits to ER’s and Urgent Care facilities.  Lowering the overall wellness of your employees and their families has a significant hard dollar impact to your bottom line but likely is dwarfed by impact of increased absenteeism and reduced employee productivity.
