Conditions Appropriate for Virtual Urgent Care
at Evolve Direct Primary Care
Evolve Direct Primary Care belongs to the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), which has compiled a specific set of guidelines. The process of establishing these guidelines followed a rigorous process of evidence review and expert assessment of more than 600 studies regarding the practice of telemedicine in primary and urgent care. A complete PDF of the guidelines can be found here.
In addition, our founder and CEO, Dr. Michael Freedman, has attended ATA conferences and constantly keeps up with statements and guidelines issued by organizations such as the ATA, the American Association of Family Practitioners, American Society of Internal Medicine and the American Medical Associations in an ongoing effort to be sure that Evolve Direct Primary Care is managing and treating only the conditions that are deemed appropriate for virtual urgent care.
