As consumers continue to demand greater access to healthcare providers and adopt new technology to support their needs, providers are answering the call… literally.
Telemedicine, which allows providers to remotely diagnose and treat certain illnesses through digital devices, has been growing rapidly in popularity. Last year, Solv introduced a video telemed platform designed specifically for urgent care patients to schedule a telemedicine visit through the Solv website, helping them save valuable time and receive care from the comfort of their home. For providers, it supports the patient demand, fill latent capacity, and load balances patient flow between clinic locations.
NiteHawk Pediatric Urgent Care, based in Wylie, TX and building their existing partnership with Solv, is the newest urgent care group to implement the Solv telemedicine platform. As NiteHawk continues to expand their services throughout the greater Dallas and Fort Worth metro area, adopting a telemedicine service was the next piece of the puzzle, allowing parents to conveniently arrange video calls with trusted pediatricians and be treated without ever leaving home.
“We’re excited to bring pediatric telemedicine options to more families in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with NiteHawk,” said Heather Fernandez, Solv CEO & co-founder. “Having a quality pediatric provider offering real-time video visits is an exciting opportunity to extend convenient care options to many more consumers.”
“Solv has been such a valuable partner of ours and we are pleased to expand our programs with them to provide parents another easy option to access care at NiteHawk,” said Keyur Sathe, NiteHawk President and CEO. “Solv will be a key part of our success as we look to grow our network of facilities and service offerings across Dallas/Fort Worth and North Texas.”
