24 Hour Home Care and Heal Team Up to Provide On-Demand Doctor House Calls to Seniors in the Los Angeles Area
24 Hour Home Care® and Heal, the leader in on-demand doctor house calls, today announce that, together, they will give seniors in the Los Angeles area the quality of health care they need, in the privacy of their own homes. Many 24 Hour Home Care® clients do not have smartphones or Internet access, and this partnership enables 24 Hour Home Care® to schedule Heal appointments for them via phone, bridging the potential gap of the lack of technology and access to mobile apps. Clients who have access to smartphones can also book appointments within the Heal app or on Heal’s website.
“Our new relationship with Heal is the perfect solution to enhance the level of care and services we provide for seniors,” stated Ryan Iwamoto, Co-Founder of 24 Hour Home Care®. “This partnership emphasizes our purpose of impacting people’s lives by making a difference every single day. Our caregivers and team members see our clients regularly and believe there’s a need for convenient, high-quality doctor house calls. We have no doubts this service will make a positive impact on our client’s lives.”
For many of the 24 Hour Home Care® clients, comfort and time-sensitivity are important and often critical. With Heal, wait times for appointments are already improved, as clients won’t have to wait in traffic or in doctor’s office lobbies. Heal doctors can be booked on-demand, seven days a week, 365 days per year, within a two-hour window 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily. Additionally, the amount of time spent going to and from a doctor’s office is saved, reducing stress on clients, thus ultimately improving their lifestyle. Due to the nature of 24 Hour Home Care®’s primary client base being the senior community, Heal now offers coverage by Medicare and Medicare Advantage PPO Plans, which creates even more synergy for this partnership.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with 24 Hour Home Care® to provide our exceptional on-demand service to seniors in the Los Angeles area,” said Dr. Renee Dua, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Heal. “With Heal, these individuals no longer have to be displaced by going to see their doctor in a medical office, as our highly-skilled doctors will come to them in the comfort of their own home. Unfortunately, we know that for many seniors, before this partnership, the choice wasn’t between a house call or an office visit, but rather a house call or not seeing a doctor at all. We’re closing the loop between the patient and their family, and the home health worker, through world-class care delivered by Heal doctors.”
Doctors booked through 24 Hour Home Care® and Heal offer a wide variety of services such as primary care and non-emergency urgent care visits, flu shots, well visits, and more.
