Research indicates that about 70 percent of in-person physician visits can be handled over the phone. First Stop Health aims to be on the provider end of those calls. The Chicago-based start-up offers a subscription service that provides unlimited access to U.S.-based, licensed physicians who assess, diagnose, and provide treatment over phone or online. The service is offered to employers, who seek to reduce health care costs incurred by their employees; consumers, who seek convenient telemedicine solutions provided in unlimited consultations; and health care brokers, who seek less costly solutions for their customers. Knowledgeable patient advocates are also available to help evaluate treatment options for a variety of conditions and diseases.
