American Well, a Boston-based company, is used in more than 20 states by insurance companies like United Healthcare and various Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies. The company's technology allows a patient to log onto a provider network and connect with a doctor or specialist 24/7. Patients are also able to have live video-chat sessions with a doctor, as well as text and email connections with their physician.
American Well's platform also enables mobile access via smartphone and tablet apps, along with the ability to exchange vital data directly with EHRs and key medical devices.
