Uber-like app connects patients to specialist without referral
UBERDOC has launched its patient-to-specialist (P2S) web app, which connects patients who need urgent care to specialists without requiring a referral, insurance paperwork, or the need for an appointment. Patients are immediately given direct access to top specialists in their fields, the company says. The patient pays an upfront transparent cash fee of $300 to visit a specialist; if additional appointments are required, insurance coverage can be invoked. UBERDOC says specialists benefit from the immediate revenue sources that the company generates outside the traditional referral system along with the removal of administrative hassles. The cashless transaction is processed immediately following the patient's visit and there is no third-party payer submission. All specialists receive their first 90 days on the platform free of charge. UBERDOC was founded by Paula Muto, MD, a surgeon in solo private practice.
