HILLSBORO, Ore., June 3, 2016 -- ZOOM+, the innovator of on-demand healthcare and Performance Health Insurance, launched a new version of its mobile web and iOS app to make it faster and easier for people to get on-demand access to a complete system of care via smartphone.
The new platform reflects the influence of millennials, who want friction-free access to healthcare in the palms of their hands. People can now schedule appointments within minutes by selecting the type of illness or injury they are experiencing, type of provider they are looking to see, or by clinic location preference.
This new release allows patients direct access to a complete range of providers including specialists (dermatologists, orthopedists, cardiologists, podiatrists, etc.), ER doctors, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and naturopaths. The technology eliminates time and money wasted with traditional phone calls and hold times that are standard for a scheduling desk. As a result, people have quicker access to primary, specialist, and urgent care at any one of the 32 ZOOM+ neighborhood clinics. The mobile web and iOS app also provide access to medical records and visit notes through a secure login.
"At ZOOM+, we are on a relentless mission to radically change how healthcare is delivered. We're making it just as easy to find and schedule care as it is to find and buy most other consumer goods," said Dave Sanders, CEO and co-founder of ZOOM+. "Our latest app release represents another step toward achieving our vision of Twice. 1/2. Ten. Twice the health. Half the price. Ten times the delight."
The new release also makes it easier for people who visit ZOOM+ and ZOOM+ Performance Health Insurance Members to view their visit history, labs and diagnostic results, and to receive notifications from their ZOOM+ care team.
