What is TimelyCare?
TimelyMD, a leading telehealth company specializing in higher education, developed its proprietary TimelyCare technology to offer students an extension of campus health and counseling center resources that is as easy and convenient as making a video or phone call. Through the TimelyCare app on their phone or other device, PVCC students can now select from a robust menu of virtual care options from licensed physicians and counselors in all 50 states – at no cost and without the hassle of traditional insurance.
Additionally, faculty and staff (by directing students to TimelyCare) have access to support that empowers them to help students achieve a sense of well-being, live healthier lifestyles and improve their mental health.
TimelyCare allows students to see the profiles, faces and specialty care details of a diverse range of licensed physicians and counselors available to them. They can choose to meet with a specific provider or select the first available. Typical consultations begin within 5-10 minutes – less than the amount of time it takes to walk across campus.
