White Cross and Local Doctors patients can now book a virtual consultation with a doctor wherever they are in the country with the launch of online health consultation platform, Bettr.
Bettr lets you see one of our doctors via video or phone consultations from the convenience of your house, car or workplace. Consultations cost $10 for patients enrolled with White Cross or Local Doctors and $49 dollars for others.
Tāmaki Health Chief Executive Officer, Steffan Crausaz, says the platform has already received an overwhelmingly positive response.
“Within the first two weeks of testing the platform we’ve already seen demand outstrip supply on several days and have ramped up resourcing accordingly. The response from our team of Bettr doctors has been great.
“This is a secure, easy to use and affordable platform that Kiwis can access from wherever they are. While it will never eliminate the need for face to face consultations altogether, there are many health concerns that can be addressed remotely, saving time and potentially lives,” said Crausaz.
