DocChat for Correctional Facilities

Supplementing correctional facility healthcare with DocChat can reduce facility costs tremendously. Prisoner transport costs would be largely curtailed, contracted physicians could reduce on-call hours, security management costs would be lowered, and the growing number of inmates could be served for a fixed low price. Also, a major problem for facilities is access to licensed, qualified physicians due to the rural location of many prisons. DocChat provides a network of physicians to the prison system and increase the number of possible consults in facilities. DocChat can improve the overall health of inmates, while reducing financial strain on facilities. DocChat provides quality healthcare for a fixed price that is available 24/7/365 with no need for travel, thus, greatly reducing the cost to taxpayers and increasing the welfare of inmates.
