NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nurse practitioner Devon Frost is on the job Wednesday but rather than in an office, she's on the road.
Her first client, Scott, is home with a cold but instead of making his way to a doctor’s office he simply went online and a healthcare provider came to him.
This internet driven, house call service is the brain child of business partners Jade Preis and Cole Hawkins.
"The internet these days has become the pinnacle of convenience," Preis said.
In nine months, Dose Healthcare was born. Much like the way you can order movies, food or a ride from your phone or tablet, now with a simple click of a button or touch of your finger, a healthcare providers comes to your doorstep.
"You can have someone come to your home, they can sit there with you, talk to you, look you in the eye," Preis explained.
"Here are the services that we offer -- illness, injuries, allergies, wellness exams," Hawkins said scrolling through the site.
Every step of the way, the physicians and nurse practitioners are tracked for safety.
"We always know the provider is in the field, we always know where they are and what they are doing and they keep us updated by pushing buttons on their phone throughout the course of the visit," said Preis.
Dose Healthcare does not accept insurance yet. Patients can pay a onetime fee or subscribe for a monthly payment. It’s the founders' goals to give the power back to patients.
"Treating the consumer like they’re the ultimate customer instead of treating the insurer like they're the ultimate customer," said Preis.
