Physician, Virtual Health (Family Medicine)
MemorialCare Medical Group
MemorialCare Medical Group (MCMG) has an exciting opportunity for an experienced, board certified, Family Medicine physician who enjoys being on the cutting edge of practicing medicine.
When the Covid-19 pandemic was declared in March 2020, MemorialCare vaulted into action. With multiple telemedicine projects already in the works, the implementation dates were quickly moved up. We now offer video visits, virtual urgent care, asynchronous AI-enabled eVisits, and other virtual services for our patients. Over a year later, patient satisfaction is very high, and surveys of our patients show they appreciate the option for virtual care and want it to continue indefinitely. In response, we are endeavoring to expand our virtual offerings.
Our next implementation will be an innovative product called the TytoCare™ medical device. Simply put, the device enables a Virtual Health provider to perform portions of the physical exam remotely. This can enhance the ability to diagnosis and treat more conditions remotely, whenever it’s needed, day or night without the patient having to come into the office. MemorialCare is committed to improving access to care through diverse virtual offerings as new technologies and patient needs develop.
MCMG is looking for experienced Family Medicine providers to offer these modern services to our patients. In addition, our Virtual Health physician will play an integral role in growing the program and enhancing the way we practice medicine.
