Faith Regional Physician Services announced today the launch of Faith Regional Physician Services Virtual Visit
Faith Regional Physician Services (FRPS) announced today the launch of Faith Regional Physician Services Virtual Visit – an online diagnosis and treatment service that provides residents of Nebraska convenient access to care by connecting them virtually with trusted FRPS healthcare providers. FRPS Virtual Visit facilitates care delivery through evidence-based online adaptive interviews, where patients can now seek care from their smartphones, tablets, or computers.
After logging on to FRPS Virtual Visit, faithregional.zipnosis.com, patients complete a brief online interview through which they enter their symptoms and health history information. Once a patient’s symptoms are entered, a FRPS provider will review the interview results and then respond with a diagnosis and treatment plan. If medication is appropriate, prescriptions will be sent to the customer’s preferred pharmacy for pick-up.
“Faith Regional Physician Services Virtual Visit allows a patient to access a medical provider quickly, conveniently, and at a reduced cost,” said Dr. Douglas Dilly, a family medicine and an emergency medicine provider with Faith Regional Physician Services. “I’m excited to be able to offer this service to our patients and their families.”
Patients can access FRPS Virtual Visit at any time of the day, with providers responding within one hour between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. Patients can be treated virtually for common health conditions, including cold and flu, pink eye, and bladder infections, among others – all for a set fee of $40 payable by credit card or health savings account card.
“Faith Regional is excited to offer this innovative technology solution to patients across Nebraska,” said Brian Sterud, Chief Information Officer at Faith Regional Health Services. “We are committed to leveraging technology to increase access to care and provide the latest efficiencies in healthcare. Whether from your home, or even from a tractor in the field, you can access a healthcare provider with this new solution.”
To launch FRPS Virtual Visit, Faith Regional Physician Services partnered with Zipnosis, a virtual care technology company that helps leading health systems provide online access to healthcare services, meeting the needs of patients while improving access to care and maximizing clinical capacity.
