MINNEAPOLIS/SAINT PAUL, MN and BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Zipnosis and Verizon Wireless today announced that Zipnosis will be a featured technology in the Verizon booth at the mHealth Summit Convention in Washington D.C, December 5th – 7th. The mHealth Summit is the largest conference in the world focused on mobile and wireless health solutions.
Zipnosis offers an online web portal that allows patients to have virtual visits with a clinician who can provide treatment for minor health problems such as sinus infections, bladder infections and allergies. Patients simply visit Zipnosis.com, create an account, and complete a software-guided interview that quickly and safely collects their medical information. Within an hour, the patient receives a diagnosis and treatment from a board-certified, licensed clinician using the Zipnosis online portal. Each visit is $25.00 and can be paid with a credit card or health savings account.
“Zipnosis was designed to allow patients and providers access to affordable healthcare anywhere, anytime,” said Jon Pearce, Zipnosis’ Chief Executive Officer. “Verizon Wireless provides an industry-leading network infrastructure and powerful devices that will allow us to rapidly expand our services, and the value of Zipnosis, across America.”
With their reliable network, Verizon Wireless is leveraging its scale and reach to deliver a diverse set of wireless technology solutions for healthcare providers, payers and suppliers that enable communication, collaboration and secure information flow.
“We’re helping to bring new technologies to the marketplace by enabling the mobile and wireless health ecosystem,” said Arthur Lane, associate director of healthcare strategy and new market development, Verizon Wireless. “Zipnosis’ digital platform is an innovative way for patients and providers to connect for acute medical needs using wireless devices like smartphones and tablets to access the portal.”
“At a time when payers are struggling to find painless ways to reduce healthcare costs, Zipnosis is a fresh approach,” said Pearce. “Zipnosis saves countless hours in the waiting room for each visit. The result is a low-cost, high-quality doctor visit that patients love.”
