Doxy.me offers discounted telehealth options to approximately 1,400 nonprofit clinics
(Charleston, SC, August 30, 2023) Doxy.me, a leading telehealth platform, has partnered with the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC). The NAFC provides resources and support to local clinics and pharmacies that provide free or low-cost healthcare services to the uninsured and underinsured population.
This partnership has made healthcare more accessible for the hundreds of patients seen by NAFC providers who now use doxy.me.
“Telehealth has the ability to reach patients wherever they are. We want to put this tool in the right hands—providers that are serving patients with the greatest barriers to healthcare.”
–Asiyah Franklin, Senior Telemedicine Success Manager at doxy.me
Doxy.me was created to improve healthcare access. That’s why its Professional plan is free for all nonprofits. But through the NAFC, nonprofits get a discount on Clinic plans, which include additional features like personalized branding, shared waiting rooms, and more access to telemedicine success experts.
“It’s allowed us to take care of those that don’t necessarily have the means to come to the office when they need to,” says Rita Prospero, the Operations Manager at Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative (BVMI).
Prospero explains that doxy.me’s telehealth platform is used for more than just telehealth visits. In the past, BVMI had an application process that required potential patients to come to the clinic multiple times to submit paperwork and complete interviews. With doxy.me, potential patients only need to come in once for a final interview and to submit paperwork. This has eliminated some of the barriers to receiving affordable healthcare.
Arlington Free Clinic is another member of the NAFC that uses doxy.me. Kate Nadeau, the Director of Volunteer Resources at the clinic, explained that with over 50 volunteer physicians, they needed a platform that was easy to use and required little onboarding. This would allow for the majority of their time to be spent serving patients.
“For volunteers, it’s the flexibility that it offers,” says Nadeau. “Being able to pivot and keep moving is impactful.”
Nadeau went on to share how one volunteer provider moved away but continues to volunteer their time through telehealth. For Arlington Free Clinic, telehealth has made it easier for patients to access care—and for providers to volunteer their time.
