SALT LAKE CITYApril 28, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Nevada's first Accountable Care Network (ACN), WellHealth Quality Care, announced its selection of Utah-based TruClinic to deliver telemedicine options to its patients. WellHealth's network is comprised of some of the most sought after physicians in Nevada. Physicians on the WellHealth network have made the commitment to collaborate to provide quality patient care. WellHealth believes increased access to care for its patients will increase their overall healthcare experience. Telemedicine replaces unnecessary trips to doctors' offices and emergency rooms.

Doctors can be accessed quickly and easily through mobile devices 24/7 when patients have questions or need counselling.

WellHealth chose TruClinic because it provides the most comprehensive, flexible and affordable system, and can be easily implemented and integrated within WellHealth's existing network. Payer groups are now recognizing telemedicine as an efficient way to create access and increase standards in wellness care. They are also providing fair reimbursement rates for physicians who utilize this technology.

"We are elated to have WellHealth Quality Care join the TruClinic mission," stated Justin Kahn, CEO of TruClinic. "As a demonstrated leader in the accountable care network space, WellHealth has now made a fundamental commitment to innovate and expedite the care of its patients through additional modalities of providing care. WellHealth again stands out as a pioneer in the telehealth space, similar to how it pioneered in the accountable care space."

"All of the payers WellHealth works with are welcoming this addition. Telemedicine improves access to care and ease of use, which greatly increases patient satisfaction levels, and treatment plan compliance. Utilizing TruClinic's platform is an enhancement not only to the delivery of patient care but also the quality of care and the overall management of a payer's health plan," stated Steven Keltie, President of Business Development.

TruClinic utilizes a web-based portal that is simple, adapts to work with the providers' workflow, and can be accessed via mobile devices and desktop systems. It is secure, private, and complies with all government and healthcare regulations.

WellHealth will begin to use the program starting with its Family Practice, Pediatrics, Obstetrics, Ear, Nose and Throat and Cardiology providers, and its wellness programs such as diabetic counseling. The intent is to use TruClinic's platform for physician visits, including follow-up for appointments not requiring a physical exam, pre-operative counseling, and post-operative follow-up.
