Teladoc, Inc. (formerly Teladoc Medical Services) is a telehealth company that uses telephone and videoconferencing technology to provide on-demand remote medical care via mobile devices, the internet, video and phone. The company had its initial public offering on July 1, 2015. Teladoc provides access to board-certified, state-licensed physicians 24 hours a day for non-emergency medical issues such as allergies, bronchitis, pink eye, sinus problems, and ear infection via audio-video technology for consultations regarding medical advice, diagnoses and basic prescription medications. The company bills itself as a telehealth provider due to its function of facilitating "remote house calls by primary care doctors". However, United States Department of Health and Human Services states that the term telehealth covers a broader range including "non-clinical services, such as provider training, administrative meetings, and continuing medical education" and that the term telemedicine means "remote clinical services". Its competitors include PlushCare, American Well, MDLIVE Inc., Doctor On Demand, and Carena. On the eve of its July 1 IPO, the company was billed as the first and largest telehealth platform in the United States. The number of visits facilitated in 2014 was 299,000 and 149,000 during the first quarter of 2015. The company had 8.1 million members in 2014 and 10.6 by the end of the first quarter of 2015. By the end of the first quarter of 2015, the company has 4000 clients including 160 of the Fortune 1000 companies.
