Ascension launches national online care platform

Ascension launched its national Ascension Online Care platform, giving consumers 24/7 access to the compassionate, personalized care they need — anytime, anywhere, the company said.

Ascension Online Care (ascension.org/onlinecare) is an online urgent care that allows a patient to have a one-on-one video visit with a healthcare provider — using the device of their choice: a smartphone, tablet or laptop. The cost of a visit is USD 49 at the time of visit, can be paid using a credit card or HSA/FSA and does not require insurance.

Ascension markets across the country offer comprehensive virtual care options for urgent, episodic and non-emergency needs. All Ascension sites of care are connected to a broad network of doctors and specialists, and Ascension Online Care is part of a trusted healthcare brand, with the ease of availability from home or on the go.

Ascension (www.ascension.org) is a faith-based healthcare organization dedicated to transformation through innovation across the continuum of care. As one of the non-profit and Catholic health systems in the US, Ascension is committed to delivering compassionate, personalized care to all, with special attention to persons living in poverty and those most vulnerable.
