On-Demand Care With Hippo Health


Hippo Health

As a Pediatric nurse, I am constantly receiving calls from my friends and family, asking for medical advice on nights and weekends. Along with my advice, I always encourage them to try and contact their on call physician service. Unfortunately, these services are not always efficient. Parents often resort to a late night or weekend urgent care or emergency room visit, because parents are unsure of the medical attention their child needs. What if I told you that there was a service being made available to all Coloradans that would allow you to get your emergency medical questions answered in minutes? Well, I’m about to tell you about Hippo Health, the newest health service co-founded by Colorado Drs. Kevin McGarvey, Dave Wiebe, and Ken Rooks.

The Hippo Health team is currently made up of nine experienced ER doctors, with an average of 15 years experience! These doctors have created a service that will allow you to call, text, send pictures, and even send videos describing your concern. You are guaranteed a response time of 10 minutes or less!

Hippo Health is adding physicians in Colorado to join their current telemedicine team and your doctor could be one of them!

I’m sure you’re wondering why physicians would join Hippo Health. When physicians work with Hippo, they’re able to provide a better service at lower costs, and they can choose their own on-call hours, allowing the Hippo Health team to fill and continue to provide expert care for their patients when they’re off the clock. It will allow your physician’s on-call service to provide direct care to you, the patient, when and where you need it.

Some of you might be aware that usually, physicians are not allowed to have direct patient contact due to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws. Thankfully, Hippo Health has built in a confidentiality component, allowing your physician to easily wipe away your personal data – keeping your family safe and your health information private!

Imagine your little one is sick with what you think may be the flu, but could just be a simple cold . .  and it’s 7pm on Sunday night.

You’re unsure of whether symptoms are worthy of an ER visit, or if you could wait to visit the doctor on Monday morning. If you are enrolled with Hippo Health, your fears could be eased with a text or call straight to an experienced doctor.

So what does this amazing service cost? Patients are able to get a free trial, and then opt in for only $19 monthly subscription fee for individuals, and $37 per month for a family of up to seven! That’s less than most copays!


Oh, and check out this video about Hippo Health, with a cameo from my little family!:
