Erlanger Health System launches telehealth service

Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Erlanger Health System launched a 24/7 telehealth service for non-emergency conditions, according to The Chattanoogan.

The Erlanger OnDemand virtual care service enables patients to speak with a physician via a mobile app or video from wherever they are. The patients can create an account on the platform and gain access to internal medicine and family medicine clinicians who can help treat non-emergency conditions such as respiratory infections and seasonal allergies.

Patients who want to use the service do not have to be Erlanger patients and do not need insurance. Patients can register for an account online or download an app via the iPhone or Android stores.

"Thanks to Erlanger OnDemand, residents throughout the region will be able to speak to a board-certified physician and have medication orders sent to a pharmacy with a few clicks of a mouse," said Kevin M. Spiegel, Erlanger's president and CEO, according to the report.
