The plan gives employees the option of using a telehealth visit in the situations to where the patient's regular doctor may not be available, after hours and so on. In addition the medical records from MDLiveCare will also integrate with Microsoft PHR HealthVault. I am guessing this is the ability to import your video or telehealth visits with the doctor. This is not the first company to provide this service and one thing you can say for sure is that teleheatlh is on the move.
MDLiveCare work with LabCorp as well if a lab test was needed. BD
