Walmart launches telehealth initiative with Doctor On Demand

Walmart and RB, a global consumer health and hygiene company, have launched a telehealth initiative with Doctor On Demand.

This fall, consumers who purchase RB products, including Mucinex, Delsym and Airborne, from Walmart will be offered a free telehealth medical consultation with a Doctor On Demand physician.

"Partnering with RB and Walmart is a big step in moving the telemedicine industry forward, and ensuring that consumers are aware they can see a physician and receive high-quality care anywhere, at any time," Hill Ferguson, CEO of Doctor On Demand, said in a press release. "At Doctor On Demand, our physicians can treat 90 percent of the most common medical issues seen in the ER and urgent care, including cold and flu, skin and eye issues, allergies, back pain, and more."
