McLaren Health Care to deploy InTouch Health consumer platform

Grand Blanc, Mich.-based McLaren Health Care is expanding its telehealth offerings to include InTouch Health's new consumer solutions.

McLaren Health Care will add the InTouch Direct-to-Patient Solution for scheduled follow-up visits with primary care physicians and specialists as well as consults with specialists. McLaren believes the new solution will help enable rural satellite clinics within its network to provide improved patient access and specialty care.

"We selected InTouch Health to expand our telehealth services to low-acuity care to create a seamless experience for nearly any patient care solution via the web using mobile devices or a desktop," said Cheryl Ellegood, vice president of corporate service lines at McLaren. "We are excited to offer our patients an on-demand virtual care option to make it easier for them to seek care, wherever they may be."

McLaren Health Care's partnership with InTouch Health began three years ago and includes telehealth services for stroke, neurointensive care, the intensive care unit, pulmonary care and cardiology specialist consultations.
