ST. PAUL, Minn — A provider of simple and convenient online diagnosis and treatment of common health needs is broadening its reach.
Zipnosis said it will launch services in Colorado and Washington on May 15. Patients interested in having their symptoms reviewed and diagnosed can register at Zipnosis.com.
How it works: Patients first spend a few minutes answering questions using the company’s adaptive online interview. The information then is converted into a fully digital note and securely sent to a board-certified and licensed clinician within their state. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., the clinician responds in an hour with a diagnosis and treatment plan, including a prescription, if clinically appropriate. If a patient completes the online survey outside of normal hours, it will be reviewed as soon as the clinic opens in the morning.
Clinicians may diagnose such common health needs as colds, flu, sinus infections, cold/canker sores, seasonal allergies, acne and tobacco cessation, as well as female bladder infections and yeast infections. The service costs $25.
"We're excited to offer Colorado and Washington state residents access to the most affordable and convenient health care in America," said Zipnosis CEO and co-founder Jon Pearce. "Our online diagnosis reduces access and payment barriers, while ensuring a safe, appropriate diagnosis in minutes."
