Centura Health, MDLIVE partner on new telemedicine program

Centura Health, based in Englewood, Colo., and telemedicine company MDLIVE have rolled out a new virtual care program for patients in Colorado and western Kansas.

Through the program, consumers have access to board-certified physicians 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through secure online or mobile app video visits. The visits cost $49 each.

"This program is a giant step forward in healthcare delivery in Colorado and western Kansas," said Kit K. Brekhus, MD, executive physician director of Colorado Health Neighborhoods, a physician-led network affiliated with Centura Health. "We see virtual health as a tool empowering physicians with the latest advancements in healthcare delivery. We call it 'more care anywhere' — significantly improving access to care for consumers and enhancing the ability of our network of physicians to provide care not only for their patients but also for citizens and visitors across the region."
