With COVID-19 pushing telemedicine into the forefront, Access Physicians went from being part of a small, niche health care delivery system to being part of the national solution.
DALLAS, TX, November 17, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Access Physicians, one of the nation's leading high-acuity specialty telemedicine groups, has been ranked 10th by The Dallas Morning News' Top 100 Places to Work 2020 in the Small Company category.
"I'm delighted that our team's passion, dedication, and commitment are recognized," said Chris Gallagher, M.D., CEO, Access Physicians. "During this unprecedented year, every member of our team stretched and exceeded all expectations so that we could meet the intense demand for our telemedicine services. Everyone went above and beyond so that hospitals could provide exceptional care, including critical ICU-level care, for their patients."
Founded in 2013 by physicians, Access Physicians works with hospitals and health systems of all sizes to improve access to specialty and subspecialty care, including neurology and acute stroke, maternal-fetal medicine, infectious disease, and pulmonary and critical care. The company experienced meteoric growth in 2020 as hospitals look for cost-effective ways to deliver high-quality care to their patients amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The company implemented nearly 100 new clinical programs this year alone and has cared for more than 1.9 million patients with complex conditions.
"With COVID-19 pushing telemedicine into the forefront, Access Physicians went from being part of a small, niche health care delivery system to being part of the national solution…and in some cases, all of the solution," said Gallagher. "Despite personal stresses, remote work, family obligations and challenges, and societal upheaval, our team endured and has shown tremendous resilience, adaptability, commitment, and problem-solving skill."
