HOUSTON, May 17, 2018 /CNW/ -- Nobilis Health Corp. (NYSE American: HLTH) (NEO: HLTH) ("Nobilis" or the "Company") today announced it is expanding the Company's offerings to include telemedicine services. The virtual engagement of future Nobilis patients will ease geographical limitations and definitely expand Nobilis' patient reach across the country.
"Nobilis is a company built on concierge service for our patients and revolutionary technology, so embracing telemedicine is a natural part of our company's progression," said Dr. Neil Badlani, Nobilis' Chief Medical Officer, and member of the Board of Directors. "Our physicians are excited about the opportunity to increase patient engagement through telemedicine, to provide further education on our entire spectrum of minimally invasive procedures. Regardless of physical location, Nobilis physicians will be able to create a personal and productive dialogue with patients, including walking patients through their MRI results using virtual models and illustrations to break down any complexities and answer any questions the patient may have- just as though it was being done in person."
"Healthcare is becoming an increasingly consumer driven industry. With greater access to information, more abundant choices and a greater financial burden, patients are more actively involved in choosing their physicians, hospitals and health care services than ever before. And like every other industry, technology is bringing healthcare closer to patients. Telemedicine has the potential to bring patients face-to-face with their physician in the comfort and convenience of their own home," continued Dr. Badlani.
The company's Telemedicine services will be offered in conjunction with Nobilis' branded marketing campaigns, initially, with plans to expand the application throughout the system over time, and where appropriate.
