DispatchHealth is Urgent Care On-Demand that substitutes for an ER visit, whether that patient is covered by CMS, a commercial policy, or uninsured. A patient can call, use the app, or go on the website to contact DispatchHealth for urgent care, and the DispatchHealth ambulance will arrive within 2 hours with a medical technician and a nurse or physician’s assistant, outfitted with more supplies and equipment than a traditional ambulance.
Currently DispatchHealth is available in over 30 cities across the U.S. and is expanding. In addition to Urgent Care, they also coordinate up to 30-day hospitalizations-at-home and a marketplace for ancillary services. DispatchHealth has forecasted that by 2023, they will have saved the healthcare system over $2B in cost savings.
