Telehealth company pilots program specifically for transgender patients

Telehealth provider MyOnCallDoc has launched a 60-day pilot program that focuses on telehealth services for the transgender community.

The company has partnered with the World Professional Association of Transgender Health, which provides healthcare to transgender patients.

The platform being piloted is called GenderCare, and MyOnCallDoc plans to onboard more than 1,200 clinicians, including physicians, psychiatrics and psychologists, who specialize in transgender care.

"We are excited to offer telemedicine to our members and partner networks, making access to care easier than ever before," said Jamison Green, PhD, president of WPATH. "Our specialized clinicians will now be able to deliver care to transgender patients in the privacy of their homes. This is a big deal for trans people who do not have ready access to quality care."

GenderCare is expected to be fully launched in the U.S. on July 1, and internationally on Sept. 1.
