Florida’s largest independent medical group Millennium Physician Group to hit 30,000 telehealth visits today five weeks after launching its MPG Connect platform to dampen the spread of COVID-19. What’s exceptional about Millennium’s Telehealth Service MPG Connect is that it connects Millennium’s 450,000 patients with their physicians, which is a departure from most telehealth services that use third-party healthcare providers who don’t know the patients nor have their medical records on hand.
“Our technology not only connects patients who should or want to stay home with the doctors who knows them best, but it also allows our doctors to practice medicine while quarantined in what we’re calling reverse telehealth” says Millennium Chief Innovation Officer Jeffrey Nelson. Millennium is conducting more than 1,350 virtual visits a day across the state using its proprietary platform – one that it owns and built from the cloud down, right here in Southwest Florida. “This is one of the many innovations we’d already been working on and just pushed to the forefront once it became imperative the medical community come up with solutions to manage the COVID-19 Pandemic,” adds Nelson.
“Telehealth is the tool that allows us to strengthen the patient-provider relationship during this understandably concerning time while preserving our patients’ continuity of care. We’re especially vigilant about those with chronic conditions, like hypertension, diabetes, and COPD, for whom it’s particularly important to stay connected with their doctor and on top of their health,” says Millennium Chief Medical Office Alejandro Perez-Trepichio, MD. “MPG Connect is invaluable!”
All that’s needed is an MPG Connect appointment and a computer, smartphone or tablet. New and existing patients can call their nearest doctor’s office, (844) CALL-MPG or go online to MillenniumPhysician.com to request a telehealth visit through the MPG Connect platform.
