Amwell has found a way to harness modern technology to make it easier to have a doctor’s visits.

American Well is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting users with board-certified, licensed doctors, dietitians and psychologists for immediate and live, online visits—day or night, on either mobile or desktop. Some general conditions the doctors handle include: minor illnesses and injuries, general health and wellness concerns, prescription refills, and chronic condition management. They employ primary care, specialist physicians, licensed behavioral therapists and registered dietitians to meet their patients’ health and wellness needs. Doctors in Amwell’s app are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are dedicated to keeping you healthy — all from the comfort of your home.

You may wonder if a service like American Well could be useful for you. Believe me, it can! If you are a typical mom, you do not have time to be sick or the desire to wonder what is wrong with your children.  With Amwell, you can see a doctor immediately from the comfort of your own home. That means no more traffic, waiting rooms, or rescheduling—just you, your device (smartphone, tablet or computer) and a doctor. Better health is now in the palm of your hands – with Amwell! See a doctor anytime on your iPhone or iPad. Amwell brings healthcare home, so that you and your family can feel better, faster. Doctors on Amwell are board certified, with an average of 15 years in practice. They are available 24/7, with no appointment needed.

This means that you do not have to try to bundle up yourself and all the children in the middle of the night when your doctor’s office is closed in order to find out what a cough or vomiting means. Instead, if you have a question to ask a doctor? Get the care you need quickly – typical issues include things ranging from bronchitis, sinus infection and urinary tract infection to help with depression, anxiety, weight concerns and smoking cessation.

The application is sophisticated enough to find doctors in your area which is a great benefit.

One all that is done, you have the option to select from one of several doctors who are on the job waiting for patients. The system is so sophisticated that it even tells you when a particular doctor is in with a patient.  One thing I didn’t realize the first time I used the service is that the doctors with Amwell stick around. The doctor I saw on my first visit back in November of 2015 was still on staff seeing patients today!

I liked using the Amwell service because I needed to talk about an issue that concerned me after a visit to my regular doctor. The office was busy and the doctor was  not able to get to the phone to talk to me and answer my questions. The Amwell doctor had the time and ability to answer my questions, take care of a prescription refill question and make me feel better. It was truly a wonderful experience.

There are a lot of reasons both rational and emotional to see an Amell doctor.

Here are a few of the reasons people like you and people like me choose an American Well doctor as a partner in healthcare.

  1. Lower cost. Consumers expect online visits to be cost-savers; with in-office visits costing, on
average, $82 for first-time patients according to the Healthcare Blue Book, Amwell offers a $49
physician visit – a savings of $33. Great option for students in college looking for cost-effective
healthcare or those between jobs and without insurance.

2. Accessibility. After hours, on weekends and in the middle of the night (24/7/365) availability. Great for those who do have transportation or when you don’t feel well enough to drive and those who are newly relocated and don’t have providers yet.

3. Convenience. Consumers are looking for a faster appointment. Now they don’t need to schedule an appointment nor do they need to wait to be seen, especially if on vacation or business travel. The doctor can be seen from the comfort and convenience of their own home.

4. Quick prescriptions. Consumers would rather have an online video visit than an in-office visit to obtain common primary care prescriptions.

5. Peace of mind. Rather than self-diagnosing or visiting a social forum for medical advice, users can obtain second opinions directly from board certified, licensed doctors.

I am happy to report that the fine folks at Amwell have given me a special coupon code HEALTHY49 that you can use to have a real doctor’s visit for just $1! That is truly something that can’t be beat. This is in part because Amwell wants to be the “Amazon of health care.”  Even the Wall Street Journal is touting the wonders of Amwell. Check out the article here.

Check out this video from a real life mom showing how Amwell makes life better for her and her children.
