PHP to offer Parkview OnDemand telehealth

Posted: Friday, September 18, 2020

Physicians Health Plan of Northern Indiana (PHP) has contracted with Parkview Health to add a local telehealth solution for PHP members throughout Northern Indiana and beyond.

By downloading the Parkview OnDemand app to a mobile device, or accessing the ondemand.parkview.com website, PHP members can launch a virtual visit with a doctor or healthcare provider for a subsidized fee of $20. And, during the COVID-19 emergency, this fee is being waived for PHP members.

Through Parkview OnDemand, providers are available around the clock to treat many common, non-emergent adult and pediatric issues. The average wait time for a visit is 10 minutes or less.

Gail Doran, PHP executive vice president and chief operations officer said, “We are pleased to offer our members a local alternative for a doctor’s visit without leaving the comfort of their home. Our goal is to connect members with quality, needed care in the most efficient, cost-effective way. Telehealth services, such as Parkview OnDemand, provides the same-day visits and convenience factor many of our members need.”

“PHP is passionately devoted to caring for their members with smart, innovative healthcare. Nestled in the communities we serve, both PHP and Parkview have a unique opportunity to positively impact those around us. As our communities navigate a new normal, accessing care from home or wherever you are is much more important. This partnership allows us to strengthen our community commitment by providing a quality, low-cost virtual care option for PHP and its members,” stated Brandy Fey, Parkview’s manager of Virtual Health Services.
