Landmark Health and its affiliated medical groups in 46 U.S. communities announced the launch of its proprietary telemedicine app. The Landmark Health app was developed to securely connect individuals with their Landmark medical provider organizations via smartphone. The app is available to Android users as of April 27, 2020 and will soon be available to iOS users.
Telemedicine helps extend Landmark provider organizations and clinical teams into the homes of individual with higher frequency, especially those living in more rural areas. Landmark’s typical consumer is in their mid-80’s with six or more chronic conditions. The company opted to build a telemedicine app to fully customize the user experience for simplicity, while being HIPAA-compliant.
Individuals can download the Landmark Health app and go through a one-time-password (OTP) authentication registration. From there, they are brought to a home screen where they can call their local 24/7 Landmark clinical line, and view their upcoming Landmark appointments. During a video call, the individual sees their provider on-screen, with a small corner video of themselves. They can flip the camera front/back if they need to show the provider a rash, swollen ankle, medication bottle, etc. The Landmark provider can call an individual directly through the app as well. The individual sees the Landmark logo and words “Incoming Call” and taps “Accept” to connect to their provider. This simplicity is critical for an older adult – it removes the need for them to remember the appointment time, or find the dedicated link to connect with the provider. They simply answer a call.
Founded in 2014, Landmark Health and its affiliated medical groups deliver comprehensive in-home medical care to older adults. Specialized in complex chronic care, more than 100,000 people across 14 states and 46 metropolitan communities can access Landmark’s care at no cost.
