Roseville telehealth firm announces new call-center partnership
Sacramento Business Journal

A Roseville physician telehealth company has teamed up with a nurse triage call center in Arizona to exchange web-based services. Kura MD offers emergency doctors trained in occupational medicine to provide telehealth services to employees as a “company doctor.” TriageNow LLC provides time-of-injury telephone counsel from registered nurses. The two companies announced Monday they will align services so Kura MD clients can get nurse triage before seeking physician care — and TriageNow clients who need additional care after talking to a nurse can go to Kura MD. The goal is a more efficient use of health care resources — and savings for employers.
