By combining urgent care, emergency room and online telemedicine under one brand, iCare's Medical Centers provide Ultra-convenient, cutting edge, cost effective medical care to families in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
We are a start-up and within 6 months will open ONE stand-alone urgent care clinic and ONE emergency room/urgent care combo center. The ER will offer an online video chat telemedicine portal 24/7.
THE URGENT CARE will have limited hours and focus on Primary Care, Urgent Care, Travel Medicine, Vaccinations and Occupational Medicine needs. Most insurance is accepted. No appointment is needed, and you can check in online.
THE FREESTANDING ER will be open 24/7 do and treat EVERYTHING that a hospital ER does, but will transfer all patients that require hospital admission to a nearby hospital.
THE TELEMEDICINE PORTAL will be a niche feature geared to treat minor medical conditions. It SHOULD NOT be a prominent as the urgent care/emergency room. It will act as a both a service and a marketing angle to funnel people to the center. For $49 you can speak to a doctor online 24/7 through video chat and even get a prescription if its indicated (no narcotics or lifestyle drugs like viagra). If your problem is too complex for this format you will be directed to the physical center. 90% of virtual visits are successfully managed online. One catch is that you have to be referred by your doctor or sign up IN PERSON once in order to begin using this otherwise completely online service.
