The health care frontier in the United States over the last fifty years has been illustrated by soaring fees for services, increasing expenses accrued by doctors and a predisposition toward excluding participants with preexisting medical conditions. In short, the health of our greatest national asset became a matter of Russian roulette due to a simple matter of cash.
Defined with a broad stroke, telemedicine is the delivery of healthcare service or transmission of health and wellness information using telecommunication technology.
MD247 was established to eliminate our collective epidemic of a demographic group age 24 – 64 either outright lacking health care coverage, or possessing a minimal amount of health care coverage which quickly builds out of pocket expenses. The mechanism for delivery of a large scale affordable supplemental health care option could only be viable utilizing the technologies associated with telemedicine, and therein a company capable of serving the minor and major medical needs of 50,000 families was born.
MD247 works on foundation of strict in-house client servicing, refusing to allow its family of regular clients to be forced into tense calls with outsourced workers. This attention to providing a “real” face to the 15,000 families joining MD247 each week, also allows for a fascinating and airtight set of on-site personal data protection practices.
None of these ideas would be possible without the strong hand of MD247 Founder Thomas Meehan “at the rudder” of this health care ship. Meehan’s twenty-five years in private business have provided him the unique opportunity to design a business model that protects customers. Firsthand customer interaction also opened his mind to the true necessity for supplemental telemedical health care.
