WHO WE ARE
About Alvin Healthcare
ALVIN HEALTHCARE™ was formed after its founders identified a gap in the consumer market for healthcare services. In particular, they started by asking why telehealth (what we call mobile healthcare) was generally only available those who work for large employers or have a health insurance plan that includes a telehealth option for acute minor illnesses.
Why couldn't anyone get a doctor on their mobile phone, tablet or computer when they needed one? What if you didn't have insurance or had a high-deductible health plan? Mobile healthcare, up until now, had been unavailable to many consumers. Alvin Healthcare™ believes that quality, affordable healthcare should be available to everyone, no matter what his or her situation is. Thus was born the accessible and affordable mobile healthcare network called, Hello Alvin™.
Alvin Healthcare™ partnered with Teladoc, the largest and most trusted telehealth provider in the world, and other best-in-class mobile health partners to simplify the way consumers access quality, affordable healthcare in America. All of the doctors that service our network (over 3,600 of them) are U.S. Board Certified and State Licensed physicians. With Teladoc, for example, the average experience of the doctors is 20 years and they each are credentialed every three years, meeting the highest NCQA standards. Teladoc has a 92% resolution rate and a 95% customer satisfaction rating.
In addition to Teladoc, Alvin Healthcare has partnered with eDocAmerica to provide consumers access to a 24hr Registered Nurse Line and a 24hr Email-a-Doctor service, which allows them to email a specialist like a doctor, dentist, dietician, nutritionist, fitness pro and more. We will continue to bring best-in-class products directly to consumers, expanding healthcare accessibility and making healthcare more affordable for everyone.
