EpicMD to provide free telehealth service to Floridians impacted by Hurricane Irma

EpicMD will provide free virtual medical consultations to Florida residents affected by Hurricane Irma.

EpicMD, a University of Miami Health Technology Center healthcare start-up, will allow Florida-based victims of Hurricane Irma to consult with primary care physicians and specialists via phone, video, email or text.

EpicMD will partner with local charities to provide this free service.

"We're Miami-based and uniquely positioned to help out, certainly from a remote, primary care standpoint," said Matt Wanderer, CEO and founder of Epic Health, the parent company of EpicMD.

The company also engaged local charities in Houston to connect victims with its telehealth services at no cost.
