Whether due to transportation issues, childcare needs, or concern about being exposed to others’ germs when they’re already not feeling well, some patients find “convenient care” not quite convenient enough. Remedy, an urgent care company in Austin, TX is one of a number of providers looking to fulfill their urgent care needs by leveraging the advantages of electronic communication to offer an old-fashioned convenience (namely, house calls). Designed to take convenient care to the next level, Remedy’s portal guides patients through the registration process “to get urgent care to your door within 90 minutes from now.” Levying a prominently displayed $49 dispatch fee allows the company to charge market rates to insured and self-pay patients for services commonly found in the urgent care setting—including suspected infections, burns, lacerations, and orthopedic injuries, as well as sports and work-related physical exams—from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week. Remedy founder, CEO, and provider Jeremy Gabrysch, MD has ensured the public knows about the service by proactively reaching out to Austin-area television stations, newspapers, and business journals.
