“We believe there’s nothing more powerful than the relationship a doctor has with their patients, and that’s especially true for chronic care patients,” says Teresa Iafolla of eVisit. “Patients with chronic conditions account for 76% of all doctor’s visits–that’s a huge population! We believe telemedicine is one of the best ways to maintain the relationship between physicians and their chronic care patients while utilizing technology that makes treatments more convenient and effective.”

eVisit was founded with one mission in mind: to fundamentally simplify healthcare. There are a lot of ways to accomplish that, but eVisit’s team is tackling our complex healthcare system with a physician-first, user-friendly telemedicine software that lets providers securely videochat their patients. We want to give hardworking providers better technology so they can provide the highest level of care and strengthen their existing doctor-patient relationships.
