If you need to see a doctor right away, you may not have to even leave the comfort of your own home. Walgreens Pharmacy announced Tuesday that it has expanded MDLive in Wisconsin, which allows users to connect with a doctor or pharmacist digitally. Wisconsin is among 25 states that will be able to now access the service. Initially launched in 2014 in California and Michigan, the mobile app offers access to MDLIVE’s network of U.S. Board Certified doctors “Walgreens provides convenient and connected services for our customers, and we are thrilled to be advancing our digital experience to provide patients with more choices when it comes to accessing care,” said Adam Pellegrini, Walgreens divisional vice president of digital health. “We have seen that telehealth solutions play an important role in helping to improve patient outcomes, and we will continue to work to evolve our offerings to ensure our patients can choose what’s most convenient for them whether that’s live doctor consultations, digitally chatting with a pharmacist or visiting a Healthcare Clinic.” MDLIVE telehealth is accessible through the Walgreens mobile app.
