New Jersey health system Meridian Health will launch telehealth services in the first quarter of 2016 and has tapped Lewisville, Texas-based Teladoc to provide the telehealth physician consults.

In offering virtual physician visits, Meridian expects to enhance convenient and affordable access to quality non-emergent care within its catchment area, the heath system said in a release.

“Adding telehealth options to Meridian’s wide range of health care services is a natural extension of our commitment to high-quality and affordable health care, patient-centered practices and the overall health and well-being of our communities,” Sal Inciardi, senior vice president of business development, Meridian Health, said in a statement. “Teladoc’s reputation for clinical quality, along with its size and scalability, is ideally suited to Meridian’s dedication to quality and to our continuing growth and expansion.”

“Teladoc shares Meridian Health’s commitment to quality, affordable care and we are honored to be selected as a strategic telehealth partner by such an impressive organization,” Alan C. Roga, M.D., senior vice president and general manager of the provider market for Teladoc, said.

Meridian Health is a five-hospital system and provides healthcare services through more than 100 locations, including hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, outpatient centers, fitness and wellness centers and numerous other facilities and services.
