American Well is pleased to share that our affiliate national telehealth network of providers, Online Care Group, just received certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for physician credentialing, with a perfect score of 100 percent!
With this certification, Online Care Group demonstrates its continued commitment to excellence under the leadership of Dr. Peter Antall, who has led OCG from its inception and was recently promoted to Chief Medical Officer.

Under Dr. Antall’s leadership, Online Care Group will expand to new specialties this year, including pediatrics, dermatology, and psychiatry.
