まるでUberなみ!1時間以内に飛んできてくれる出張オンデマンド・ドクターサービス

スポンサーリンク

診療報酬がどえらく高いアメリカならではのビジネス。
基本的にお医者さんは暇という環境。
日本のお医者さんのように1日に何十人も診察することがないからできるビジネスですね。

それぞれのオンデマンドドクターによってサービス形態はちがいます。
しかし、これだけ、オンデマンドドクターのサービス企業があることに驚きます。

また、患者の家や職場で治療が行えるというのも、日本の医療の法制度ももっと考える必要がありますね。

スマホで呼べるドクターってすごい!

厚生労働省さん、このあたりの法制度の見直しぜひすすめてください。
訪問診療の加点方法など。

Startups Vie to Build an Uber for Health Care

The charges—$99(1万1195円) each for the first two visits; $200(2万2616円) for the family—weren’t covered by insurance, but Mr. Gold, who owns a corrugated-box company, says that was still a bargain compared with taking time off work to go to the doctor. “Now, whenever my son bumps himself, he says, ‘Daddy, we need to get the doctor here,’ ” Mr. Gold says.

Heal is one of several startups putting a high-tech spin on old-fashioned house calls—or “in-person visits,” since they can take place anywhere. The services provide a range of nonemergency medical care—from giving flu shots to treating strep throats and stitching lacerations—much like a mobile urgent-care clinic.

The companies use slightly different models. Pager, in New York City, dispatches doctors or nurse practitioners via Uber, for $200(2万2616円). Heal, in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Orange County, Calif., promises to “get a doctor to your sofa in under an hour” for $99(1万1195円). (A medical assistant goes along to do the driving and parking.)

RetraceHealth, in Minneapolis, has a nurse practitioner consult with patients via video (for $50(5654円)), and only comes to their homes if hands-on care like a throat swab or blood draw is necessary (for $150(1万6962円)).
