Reasons to Use Amwell

Created by doctors, Amwell is:

  • The most popular consumer telehealth app worldwide in 2014 according to App Annie
  • The first telehealth service awarded accreditation by The American Telemedicine Association
  • The first telehealth platform to integrate with Apple’s Health App
  • The only service that allows you to select the doctor you want to see for an on-demand visit

Below lists the rational and emotional reasons clients and consumers to believe what we say and use our product/service. Included are all major copy points and visual evidence listed in order of relative importance to the client/consumer.

  1. Lower cost. Consumers expect online visits to be cost-savers; with in-office visits costing, on average, $82 for first-time patients according to the Healthcare Blue Book, Amwell offers a $49 physician visit – a savings of $33. Great option for students in college looking for cost-effective healthcare or those between jobs and without insurance.
  2. Accessibility.  After hours, on weekends and in the middle of the night (24/7/365) availability. Great for those who do have transportation or when you don’t feel well enough to drive and those who are newly relocated and don’t have providers yet.
  3. Convenience. Consumers are looking for a faster appointment. Now they don’t need to schedule an appointment nor do they need to wait to be seen, especially if on vacation or business travel. The doctor can be seen from the comfort and convenience of their own home.
  4. Quick prescriptions. Consumers would rather have an online video visit than an in-office visit to obtain common primary care prescriptions.
  5. Peace of mind. Rather than self-diagnosing or visiting a social forum for medical advice, users can obtain second opinions directly from board certified, licensed doctors


My experience with Amwell

I learned from the Nutritionist, that pairing a complex-carbohydrate choice with a protein-packed food for the perfect snack combinations. I really like that I could get this information straight from a professional, trained and certified Nutritionist in telehealth so they can deliver the best possible experience.  I really like that I can get information I need without having to make a Dr appointment several months ahead of time.  It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. From signing up to navigating my way around the Amwell site and choosing a specialist.  I really like that insurance is accepted and they give you the first visit free so everyone can try Amwell out and see for themselves how easy and informative this telehealth provider is.  After this first visit I feel confident in using Amwell again for other services like health care for myself or our little ones.  I think this is a huge asset for busy families when some medical needs can be taken care of quickly by professionals without having to schedule appoints, waiting in Dr offices etc.

Nutrition: Healthy Snacks To Pack For Your Kids On A Vacation

I like to use bento boxes, single serve reusable containers and or resealable bags for convenience, especially when traveling.  Since it is summer and the weather is warm I chose to slice lemons and add them to a chilly bottle of water for traveling. I recommend a stainless steel thermal travel mug because they keep drinks cold for a very long time and there is no waste of plastic bottles. I am showing the lemon water in clear bottles for demonstration purposes. I like to peel back the label and turn it around and either color code them or write the kids names on the labels so they can keep track of who's is who's.   When traveling I like to make bento boxes for when we stop at a rest stop and can actually sit at a picnic table and the kids can enjoy their snacks that way.  While in the vehicle, I like them to use the resealable bags, this way they can eat what they want and seal it back up and put the bag back in their thermal bag.  I also like to use the single serve containers for snacks in the car or stroller.  I really like the idea of healthy snacks in combinations that best meet their nutritional needs.  Happy, healthy kids while traveling is a plus!  I like to pack finger foods for the most part and one bento box for more of a sit down snack like the Sugar Free Caramel Apples and Mango/Blueberry fruit salad.  Our kids love all these combinations and I really like that it satisfies their hunger and nutritional needs while we travel and are on vacation.  We do a lot of walking in the heat and spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun, so this is really important to me that we have a lot of tasty water and healthy snacks so we can enjoy our vacation and stay healthy at the same time.

  3. This is a good idea and would be great in times when there is no time in your schedule to make an appointment with your regular doctor.

  4. This is a good idea and would be great in times when there is no time in your schedule to make an appointment with your regular doctor.

  5. Amwell looks like an excellent and very affordable app.

  6. I extremely like the idea of Amwell for us that would be awesome. We live a total of 3 hours from doctors it would be very helpful and cost effective too. Especially since most the time you already know whats wrong with yourself or your loved ones. The snack idea's are great I do some things like this too but yours gave me many more things to try.

  7. It can mean the contrast amongst life and passing for a newborn child. A decent quality pediatric stethoscope cannot be substituted for in a crucial circumstance, regardless of the possibility that you as of now have a grown-up stethoscope available. do paramedics use stethoscopes
