American Well Announces Telehealth Pilot For Clinical Care Programs At Massachusetts General Hospital

American Well's web-based Online Care platform is designed to extend the ability of physicians to better care for their patients from the patients' home or work using the web, smartphones or tablet devices. Physicians can review a patient's incoming clinical information, speak with and see the patient, prescribe medications if appropriate and suggest follow-up care. Online Care visits are designed to abide by HIPAA rules, protecting the patient's privacy and the security of their health information. At the conclusion of the six-month pilot, the program may be expanded beyond the three initial clinical areas. 

"Massachusetts General Hospital is an iconic institution representing the very best of healthcare both nationally and worldwide. Mass General's decision to roll out telehealth as a channel for their renowned services fits the bill of innovation and modernization of healthcare delivery for which this organization is so well known," said Roy Schoenberg MD, MPH, CEO of American Well Systems. "We at American Well are proud to be part of this effort and will help Mass General and its leadership continue to shape clinical best practices and enlist technology as a way to bring care to their patients."
