During this unprecedented time, Technology Association of Oregon will be featuring the benefits and value that TAO member companies can provide to our greater community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
ZOOM+Care CEO Torben Nielsen explains the resources being offered to the community during the COVID outbreak.
TAO Member Company: ZOOM+Care
Give us a short intro to your business:
ZOOM+Care is a better, faster way to get care. As the leading provider of on-demand retail and digital healthcare in the Pacific Northwest, we care for over 200,000 people per year at over 45 clinics across Portland and Seattle. Currently, we provide urgent care, primary care, specialty care, mental health, telemedicine, and more.
What resources can your business offer the community during the COVID pandemic?:
Amidst this global crisis, we want to continue to care for our patients, in ways both new and familiar.
To ease crowding in local hospital emergency rooms—and to minimize the risk of exposing our patients and providers through in-person contact—we are offering ZOOM+Care visits through both phone and online, through our ChatCare option.
Furthermore, we are currently offering a cost-free COVID-19 assessment and guidance via Chat.
What is the best way for the community to get in touch?:
Because virtual options are by far the safest, most efficient way to address your healthcare needs, we’re asking our patients to start their care by connecting with a provider through a Phone Visit, or via ChatCare™.
Through Chat and Phone visits, you can discuss your health concerns with a ZOOM+Care provider, who will then determine if you’ll need to come into the clinic for further evaluation or treatment.
What’s your favorite way to pass the time during self-quarantine?:
Watching the news, a great movie and having out with my family
What’s one thing that helps you stay positive or gives you hope during difficult times?:
The resilience and creativity I see on display from my team, the local community, and my network. It’s amazing to watch how in the midst of a crisis, seemingly impossible ideas and concepts become possible. That’s powerful and invigorating to watch and be part of!
