The ZoomCare Story*
(* Note: "Sarah" is the shorthand way we refer to the patient to whom ZoomCare caters)
Before 2006, when "Sarah" had a need for urgent medical attention the choices were not great:
If she called her doctor's office, chances were that she couldn't get an appointment right away...and might not for several days.
If she went to the emergency room at the local hospital...it was overcrowded and expensive (for her and the system).
If she showed up at the urgent care center, chances were she got a number and had to wait for hours to be seen.
ZoomCare changed all that. Starting in 2006 "Sarah" could ask for a same day appointment and be seen by a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant at ZoomCare's first neighborhood clinic. ZoomCare pioneered "healthcare on demand" and patients liked this new idea. Two clinics grew to 19 neighborhood clinics in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Today "Sarah" and her family can get complete primary care blood tests, x-rays, medical exams and the medicine she needs for a broad range of illnesses, injuries and preventive care. And patients at ZoomCare get the advantage of advanced technology in setting their appointments and reading lab results on a handheld device:
If "Sarah" wakes up on Saturday and needs to go to the doctor's office, she gets on her computer to use "live scheduler" to pick the time and most convenient clinic for her exam.
"Sarah's" lab results will be sent immediately to her computer or smart phone using secure technology and a doctor or physician assistant can hand her the medicines she needs, saving her the time of a separate pharmacy visit.
"Sarah" knows what the visit will cost and she will use her insurance or self-pay option, thereby avoiding any follow-up bills.
