Avizia Taps MLS Telehealth Physician Network

Avizia, a leading telehealth solution provider, has partnered with MLS Telehealth to expand its enterprise virtual care platform to include clinical staff in 36 specialties. MLS Telehealth is a physician-run organization that has provided clinical staffing services in 50 states for more than a decade. Through the new partnership Avizia customers will have access to MLS Telehealth’s experienced board-certified physicians. "While Avizia is the leading telehealth technology company, we recognize that many hospitals need a service, both technology and providers to address patient needs," says Alan Pitt, M.D., chief medical officer for Avizia. "To deliver care, we partnered with MLS Telehealth, a leading telemedicine provider network. This will allow us to offer a more complete solution by providing a robust network of physicians on an as-needed basis." Moving forward, all Avizia customers will have access to targeted, customized, and flexible telehealth coverage solutions either on-site or virtually. Keeping quality care top of mind, the physicians are all board-certified or board eligible, and nearly 80 percent have current or recent affiliations with an academic institution. "Avizia has always had seamless, high-quality technology, and with this new offering we can provide the same great quality in the form of clinical staff," says Pitt. "Across the care continuum, quality, affordability, ease of use, and implementation must be top of mind. Otherwise many hospitals will continue to defer creating a telehealth program. With this new offering and Avizia's scalable solutions, now they don't have to." All physicians offered by Avizia also undergo vigorous and careful screening by MLS Telehealth, and have prior telemedicine experience providing virtual consultations.  "A lot of hospitals want to create a telehealth program, but it either seems too difficult or they really only need coverage at certain times of the year and for certain specialties," says Dan Bensimhon, M.D., founder and CEO of MLS Telehealth. "With this partnership we hope to remove the barriers they are facing, and give them the scalable staff and technology many of today's patients have come to expect."
