DispatchHealth Launches in Nashville
Families in Nashville, TN, have a new place to turn for same-day medical care: their own homes! DispatchHealth is excited to bring our on-demand, in-home healthcare services to the Nashville area beginning November 19, 2020. Our fast-growing team is already in more than 25 markets throughout the country, providing safe, convenient, and affordable medical services to patients of all ages 365 days a year.
The Modern-Day House Call
DispatchHealth is a sensible alternative to overbooked primary care centers, bustling urgent care clinics, and packed ERs, especially as COVID-19 continues to spread and put individuals with pre-existing health conditions at risk. By bringing complex healthcare services out of a pricey and crowded hospital setting and into the home, patients can more easily and efficiently receive the treatment they need to achieve their best health. Plus, requesting care from us is simple—just give us a call, go on our website, or use our app.
Providing many of the same services as a hospital emergency room, DispatchHealth is equipped to treat patients with a wide array of acute and chronic medical conditions. We commonly assist patients with:
- COPD exacerbations
- Food poisoning
- Joint pain
- Skin infections
- Strep throat
- Upper respiratory infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Wounds and cuts
- Complications related to heart failure, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other complex medical conditions
DispatchHealth is also equipped to provide in-home COVID-19 testing and treatment. Our medical teams adhere to the most stringent infection control protocols and wear full personal protective gear when appropriate. Additionally, all equipment and vehicles are thoroughly sanitized between visits to ensure the safety of our patients and professionals.
We understand that Nashville residents have many choices when it comes to healthcare. This is particularly true as medical professionals scramble to offer telemedicine and accommodate individuals who aren’t comfortable being in close quarters with other sick patients. Thankfully, DispatchHealth’s in-home medical services are a vast improvement over speaking to a far-away nurse via a spotty internet connection. As our patient, you’ll receive in-person, compassionate care from a qualified medical team at a price that’s about the same as a trip to an urgent care clinic.
A Few Thoughts From Our Local Leader, Melody O’Dell
I am thrilled to be a part of the DispatchHealth team! I have partnered with DispatchHealth in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Richmond, Virginia, in my prior role, which has allowed me to see the impact this organization makes on patients’ lives first hand! I have been intently watching this organization grow market after market, state after state. The DispatchHealth model is innovative, cost effective, and exactly what healthcare has been missing for so many years.
Nashville, Tennessee, is home to a diverse healthcare arena, with more than 500 healthcare companies that operate in the city. With the ever-rising population, Nashville has been named in the top 10 of moving destinations. Our CEO and co-founder, Dr. Mark Prather, even has roots here, attending Vanderbilt University for his undergraduate degree.
DispatchHealth coming into the Nashville market will have a direct impact on patient care with our high-acuity urgent and emergent care for non-life-threatening and non-time sensitive medical conditions in the home. DispatchHealth will be that true ER diversion strategy for the overall healthcare community with an option for patients to experience world class healthcare in the home at a lower cost.
We position ourselves as adjunctive to primary care and add the processes in place to ensure strong clinical loop closure to enhance collaboration to ultimately drive appropriate ER utilization.
