Hawaii physicians launch consumer telemedicine app: 4 notes

Hawaii physicians Neel Chauhan, MD, and Cedric Strong, MD, launched a telemedicine service that allows patients to schedule and complete appointments through video chat on their mobile device, Hawaii News Now reports.

Four notes:

1. The service, called WePrescribe, provides online check-ups for common conditions including coughs, colds and urinary tract infections.

2. Drs. Chauhan and Strong launched WePrescribe earlier this month, and their team of providers comprises internal medicine specialists, family physicians and nurse practitioners.

3. After a patient schedules an online consultation through the app, the wait-time before a physician calls back is about an hour.

4. A virtual appointment through WePrescribe costs $49.99 and is not covered by health insurance.
