Telemedicine startup Doctor on Demand taps giant health partner to debut virtual primary care plan
San Francisco Business Times

Doctor On Demand is paving the way for virtual-first health care, kicking off its primary care offering with nationwide health insurer Humana.

The San Francisco-based telemedicine company, which began as an urgent-care platform, has broadened its reach to include primary, preventative and chronic care — centralized on its digital app active 24/7 via video visits, phone calls and messaging. Humana’s Florida and Texas markets will be Doctor On Demand’s first test of this bridging between patients’ virtual primary care doctor visits and a network of referrals for in-person needs, such as specialists, scans and tests.
