VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Benefits By Design (BBD), a third party administrator that connects Canadian businesses with benefits and workplace solutions, has partnered with MyCare MedTech Inc., a Canadian telehealth company offering medical care through its platform, GOeVisit. GOeVisit provides virtual consultations with medical providers for minor illnesses 24/7 from coast to coast. The partnership offers BBD groups an innovative way to access medical care for minor illnesses without having to leave home or office and without experiencing long wait times.
“Canadians are ready to take control of their healthcare,” says Liz Bryant, Chief Operating Officer of MyCare MedTech Inc., “and want alternatives to waiting for care for minor illnesses. Two thirds of Canadians surveyed want to access care the way they use so many other services: through technology. BBD continues to show industry leadership by making GOeVisit available to their clients."
GOeVisit uses the same technology people already use daily to turn a computer, smartphone, or tablet into a private, face-to-face medical visit that can also be accessed through a free mobile app. GOeVisit’s medical team can diagnose, treat, and prescribe for more than 80 minor illnesses ranging from coughs, colds and flu, to general medical concerns, minor injuries and pediatric care. If a prescription is required, it can be sent to the pharmacy of the client’s choice or can be delivered next business day anywhere in Canada.
BBD’s Managing Partner Mike McClenahan says, “We know many working Canadians lack regular, dependable access to a family physician. GOeVisit bridges that gap to treat minor illnesses for plan members and their dependents, no matter where they’re located. That makes this service a perfect fit as BBD continues to find new ways to help working Canadians.”
