Doctors will make Web calls in Hawaii
American Well, a Web service that puts patients face-to-face with doctors online, will be introduced in Hawaii. Its first customer, the Hawaii Medical Service Association, will make the Internet version of the house call available to everyone in the state, the company said. The service is for people who seek easier access to physicians because they are uninsured or do not want to wait for an appointment or spend time driving to a clinic, said Roy Schoenberg, co-founder and chief executive of American Well Systems.
