One of the companies profiled in our Your Online Doctor Will See You Now commentary was MeMD. The Company announced earlier this week that its online doctor service is now available in all 50 states. MeMD users can set up an online medical consultation with a MeMD participating provider and obtain an e-prescription, when medically appropriate, from anywhere in the United States, including the District of Columbia. The Company offers single-use and monthly membership-based options for consumers and businesses seeking telehealth services and health benefits. The MeMD service, like other online doctor services, is aimed at common, minor health conditions that can be safely diagnosed and treated in a virtual environment. The common cold, the flu, allergies, bronchitis, earaches, sinus infections, urinary tract infections, pink eye, and sore throats are among the many minor health conditions treated by an online doctor service. With MeMD, users can consult online with a MeMD Provider who is licensed and has prescriptive authority in a patient’s particular state of residence.
