The Cleveland Clinic’s latest telemedicine service is designed to allow patients to see a doctor, nurse, or other provider for quick complaints such as colds, flu, rashes, or urinary tract infections. The service, MyCare Online, will require a one-time download of a free app called Cleveland Clinic MyCare for mobile phones or iPads. After registering and providing billing information, patients can log in at any time and request care. The service costs $49, and it lets patients in Ohio remotely connect to a doctor, nurse, or other specialist at the Clinic within one minute. The program has built-in analytics that allow the health system to keep track of how many people are accessing the service, what kind of help they need, and how long they wait.
