The telemedicine offering will be initially geared toward employees in remote offices who do not have access to workplace-based healthcare providers. Patients will have access to specialist consultations through Partners' online specialty consultations system, a web-based application that connects consumers and their physicians to the knowledge base of more than 4,000 specialists located at Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women's Hospital, according to the report.
CHS Health Services is a national workforce health management company specializing in onsite healthcare solutions. This project is the first time CHS will have a telemedicine product, according to the report.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
