Bloomington, Minn.-based HealthPartners, the nation’s largest consumer-governed, nonprofit health care organization, today launched virtuwell, a new convenience care service offering online diagnosis and treatment of simple medical conditions. The custom-designed service created by HealthPartners and developed by partner San Francisco-based AKQA combines proven, trusted medical expertise with the convenience of 24/7 online access to care–including prescriptions if needed.
The new service extends HealthPartners delivery of affordable, quality care, offering a low-cost, convenient alternative to office visits, evisits, and phone consultations for routine conditions that don’t require an in-person examination.
At virtuwell.com, experienced nurse practitioners are available online–on demand and around the clock–to provide personalized diagnoses, treatment recommendations, and prescriptions for conditions such as cold, cough and allergy, ear pain, yeast and urinary tract infection, and others.
