Telehealth For Modern Life

Why choose Telehealth?

Telehealth during COVID-19 pandemic wave became more critical due to limited access to primary care doctors and specialists. Patients can access care from their living rooms and talk to physicians specialized in specialties like Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, who can swiftly address care and save them the hassle of waiting for appointments or spending top dollars in Emergency Rooms (ER).

Quick and Efficient

Do you know 76% of total US hospitals employ telemedicine to connect doctors with patients to provide quick and efficient treatment? [1]

United Medical Group aims to provide a quick and efficient response to every patient. Our group of physicians, specialists and consultants are always available. Instead of waiting for hours in the waiting area of a hospital or clinic, it is better to rely on an experienced and easily-available doctor. You can present your signs and symptoms and describe your condition to them over a call and they will brief you about the diagnosis right away!

Efficient use of Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Thanks to medical technology for bringing innovative approaches that make consultation easier for patients as well as doctors. With the help of accurately registered Electronic Health Records (EHR), you don’t need to repeat your medical history to the doctor in each session. The doctors of United Medical Group have access to your medical history which makes it safer and more efficient to help you out!

Convenience is only a call away!

In exceptional conditions, such as our current COVID-19 pandemic wave, prevents individuals from visiting hospitals, clinics and healthcare centers. Did you know 25% of the US adults ages above 50 preferred telemedicine over traditional visits to the hospitals in the pandemic? [1]

Telemedicine is all about your convenience. United Medical Group understands the rigid circumstances which do not allow patients to reach hospitals and clinics on time. Elderly, infants and pregnant women, physically challenged individuals and those living in rural areas often experience lack of resources and help which deteriorates their condition. Our EHR platform, www.yourmd.online, is a successful solution to your inconvenience. Make a voice or video call and get in touch with your doctor for quick diagnosis, prescription and guidelines.

Telehealth is easy on pocket

A traditional visit to doctor’s office is quite expensive. On average, a session of telemedicine costs you 79$ whereas a visit to doctor’s office costs you $146. The cost for emergency room visit is $1,734. The difference is quite clear! [2]

Our telemedicine platform offers a low-cost option for direct pay, $40 for a 15 min phone visit and $50 for a 15min video visit. Alternatively, you can also opt to pay via insurance or Health Savings Account (HSA) card for your visit.

United Medical Group believes that the value proposition and future of healthcare is better when we have physicians working through remote technology to reach patients anywhere, anytime and quickly triage them for their care. Our doctors under United Medical Group at http://www.yourmd.online hope to be a long-term solution for physician shortage, access to care and affordability issues for many patients nationwide.

United Medical Group is now available to provide telehealth on their medical telephone consultation service line 1-888-9YOURMD (996-8763) and on www.yourmd.online.

All Aboard the Smile Train

Every parent’s dream is to stare down at their perfectly formed newborn baby and coo and murmur every bit of soothing nonsense imaginable, but what if their newborn has a birth defect? It makes the child no less special, but sometimes, the world can be unbelievably cruel. The most common birth defect in the world today is the cleft lip and/or palate, a facial deformity that leaves the lip split and the roof of the mouth with a large hole. One in a thousand children is affected each year in the United States alone. It is believed that in developing countries that 165,000 children are born every year with cleft lip or palate, but this is much harder to determine because these children are often killed moments after birth or abandoned, left to the mercy of wild animals or the elements.

A cleft lip or palate repair surgery is one of the simplest and least expensive to perform, but most of these parents can’t afford to have it done, even though it would mean a better quality of life for their child. However, thanks to the generosity and kind spirit of the people who formed Smile Train, these children have a chance to go to school, to get a job when they get older, and to live a life without ridicule. Smile Train’s mission is to provide free surgeries and rehabilitation for children who cannot afford it any other way.  However, Smile Train cannot do it alone. They rely on the donations from kind people who believe in their cause. For only two hundred and fifty dollars, a child’s life can be changed for the better forever. If you believe in Smile Train’s mission and wish to contribute,  you can donate at SmileTrain.org.
