Zipnosis Branches Into Family Medicine

The American Academy of Family Physicians is offering Zipnosis, an online telemedicine video chat and messaging platform, to its 129,000 members and their patients.

Zipnosis is unrolling the service initially to a small group of physicians so the company can assess what kind of set-up support those practices need, Becki Hafner-Fogarty of Zipnosis told Morning eHealth. All members will have access later in 2018.

The software lets physicians video chat, message and issue questionnaires to patients who also have the app. Zipnosis generally charges a set-up fee and a flat subscription fee for each provider system, regardless of the number of clinicians using it. The AAFP partnership lets physician members pay a discounted rate for the Zipnosis set-up and service. Read more.
