Wegmans rolls out telehealth pilot program

BY David Salazar

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — As Walgreens expands its partnership with MDLive to three new states and RiteAid tests out a pilot program, Wegmans is forging into telehealth territory with a new virtual doctor program in four of its stores’ pharmacies.
According to the Syracuse Post-Standard, customers in DeWitt, New York; Niagara Falls, New York; Fairfax, Virginia; and Allentown, Pennsylvania can now stop into their Wegmans pharmacy for a virtual doctor’s visit through Doctor on Demand, which allows users to see doctors and psychologists online with their computer, smartphone or tablet. The Wegmans pharmacies in the program also have a kiosk for users without a computer. 
The first Doctors on Demand visit is free, and will put users in touch with board-certified doctors who are available from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Though Wegmans employees in DeWitt say that the Doctor on Demand services aren’t meant for emergencies, they can be helpful for things like sinus infections or cold and flu cases.
