BeWellNow − Northern Arizona Healthcare’s new treatment option

ARIZONA – September 13, 2016 – Northern Arizona Healthcare and PathfinderHealth have partnered with American Well − a leading telehealth technology services company − to bring BeWellNow to the communities they serve. We are constantly looking for ways to improve patient care by using the newest and most innovative treatment options available.

Using BeWellNow, patients suffering from non-emergent medical conditions are able to link to board-certified physicians from their personal smartphone, tablet or computer. Each visit uses a secure, live-video and costs a flat rate of $49. BeWellNow physicians are on call 24-hours a day, seven-days a week to provide quality care to patients and their families; prescribe prescriptions as needed; make referrals for specialty care; and provide follow-up care recommendations.

“Communities across the country – including ours – face shortages of primary care providers, which can make seeing your physician difficult when you are sick. The intent behind BeWellNow is to offer people another option when they need care quickly and their provider isn’t available,” said NAH President and CEO Robert P. Thames, F.A.C.H.E, F.H.F.M.A.

“We are so pleased to partner with Northern Arizona Healthcare, an organization that prides itself on patient experience. By delivering care in a more modern and convenient way, they will foster greater satisfaction, and continue to improve the patient experience,” said Danielle Russella, president of Client Solutions, American Well. “Together we can make an even greater impact on the communities and families that have placed their trust in Northern Arizona Healthcare.”

BeWellNow is convenient when patients aren’t able to see their primary care provider; are too sick or busy to make an office visit; or are traveling. Patients can sign up for BeWellNow by downloading the iOS or Android app by searching “BeWellNow” or on the web via NAHealth.com. For more information about BeWellNow, visit NAHealth.com/BeWellNow.
