The doctor is “out”—but he can still see you. Pharmacy giant CVS Health on Wednesday announced it will work with three leading telehealth companies to expand patients’ access to doctors, who will be able to provide consultations remotely via the Internet or over the phone. Those companies, American Well, Teladoc and Doctor On Demand, will begin receiving referred CVS customers, as well as referring their own customers to 150 CVS walk-in clinics, in six states by the fourth quarter, according to the pharmacy chain. The deals aim to expand upon a successful pilot program that CVS recently ended in a handful of its 1,000 MinuteClinics.
