Caring for a senior with the flu

We Travel So The Flu Doesn’t

Last year’s flu season was the longest in 10 years. And while more than 600,000 people sought treatment for the flu in emergency rooms, they put everyone who came within six feet at risk.

Luckily, DispatchHealth helps patients get on the road to recovery without ever getting on the road at all. Our Traveling Flu Crew delivers high-quality care to you, in the comfort of your home.


For Patients

What you need to know

What’s the Traveling Flu Crew?

The Traveling Flu Crew is a team of DispatchHealth emergency care providers that diagnose and treat patients with flu symptoms from the comfort of home. (Please note: DispatchHealth currently does not offer flu shots.) Each medical team consists of either a physician assistant or nurse practitioner, along with a DispatchHealth medical technician (DHMT) and on-call ER physician.

With a quick call to call 1-866-FLU-CREW, they will arrive at your doorstep ready to perform a rapid infectious disease test, administer IV fluids, prescribe medication, and more.

In addition to the flu, DispatchHealth can treat a variety of injuries and illnesses in the home. DispatchHealth is contracted with most major insurance and is available seven days a week, including holidays.
