06 Nov Doctor On Demand Joins The Task Force
WASHINGTON (November 6, 2019) – The Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF or Task Force) announced today that Doctor On Demand has joined its membership.
Established in 2014, the Task Force is a multi-sector industry consortium comprised of organizations representing patients, payers, providers and purchasers committed to advancing delivery system transformation that drives rapid, measurable change for ourselves and our country. By developing and disseminating strategic, operational and policy recommendations, it aims to align private and public-sector efforts to transform the U.S. health care system by accelerating the adoption of value-based payment and care delivery models.
Headquartered in San Francisco with offices in Minneapolis and Washington, D.C., Doctor On Demand is the nation’s leading virtual care provider. With a focus on supporting individuals’ health wherever they may be, Doctor On Demand offers preventive health, chronic care, urgent care, primary care, and integrated behavioral health services through their patient-centric care model and virtual platform. Doctor On Demand recently announced a partnership with Walmart to expand the company’s virtual care program to provide its members with access to board-certified primary care physicians and multidisciplinary care teams via live face-to-face video visits on mobile phones, tablets or computers. The partnership also aims to reduce avoidable health care costs with enhanced care delivery and access to preventive services using virtual care.
“Doctor On Demand is a pioneer in virtual care and committed to providing affordable, high-quality care to the patients they serve,” said Jeff Micklos, Executive Director of the Health Care Transformation Task Force. “Their addition to the membership ensures that the Task Force continues to push against the status quo and consider innovative modes of health care delivery in our pursuit of a value-driven, patient-centered delivery system.”
“We are excited to join a group of leaders as committed to value transformation as Doctor On Demand,” said Ross Friedberg, Chief Legal and Business Affairs Officer at Doctor On Demand. “As the industry looks for opportunities to make care more accessible and affordable for consumers, we offer a forward-looking approach to optimized care delivery. We look forward to working together with Task Force members to achieve sustainable system transformation.”
As a member of the Task Force, Doctor On Demand joins a consortium that shares deep operational expertise and experience while offering a strong policy voice and demonstrated commitment to accelerating the adoption of value-based payment and care delivery. The group recently reported that its payer and provider members had 52 percent of their respective business in value arrangements at the end of 2018. The Task Force’s Board of Directors meets quarterly and oversees six work groups that meet monthly to address a variety of consumer-centered, value-based payment topics.
