What is Virtual Primary Care (VPC)? How does it differ from telemedicine providers?
Telemedicine and VPC are similar in the way services are delivered – phone, app, video conference. However, VPC offers a much broader range of services than telemedicine.
Using telemedicine, the patient gets a different provider each time they call and get to “start all over again”. Telemedicine providers simply treat the patient’s medical issue. Telemedicine providers don’t help the patient compare treatment options, don’t help navigate the healthcare system to find the highest-value care, don’t help compare options within a patient’s health plan, don’t find highly recommended specialists or assist with prescription shopping.
