UCM Digital Health and MVP Health Care launch new ER telemedicine program
Troy-based startup UCM Digital Health has launched a new program for MVP Health Care members designed to keep patients who don’t need emergency care out of the hospital.
Treatment in Place is a program that aims to help the overwhelmed hospital system and cut costs. UCM provides a platform through which patients can work with emergency medicine providers to determine whether an issue requires an ER visit or a different type of care. That assistance can help patients avoid taking a potentially unnecessary — and expensive — trip to the emergency room. Treatment in Place is available to MVP members after they call 911 and emergency medical services is dispatched.
