About

WorldClinic

Concierge medicine – anytime, anywhere.

Founded in 1998, WorldClinic is a private, concierge medicine practice that utilizes telemedicine to care for a diverse client base of organizations, senior executives and individuals and their families.

Functioning as a personal virtual emergency room and health care concierge, our physicians and care team provide immediate telemedical emergency response and urgent, chronic condition management on an on-demand, anytime, anywhere basis.

We give our members immediate access to the WorldClinic physician group and care team, allowing us to deliver a comprehensive care model that places our members at the center of all our efforts.

Integrated

Through our integrated care approach, we work directly with our members’ existing healthcare providers to provide total continuity to their healthcare.

When required, we also identify and vet best-in-class primary care physicians and specialists on their behalf. Further, WorldClinic doctors, nurses and Care Team are constantly following up with our patients, making sure that their health issues are on track to a timely resolution. We thoroughly assess each case, keeping an eye out for indications of a misdiagnosis or an underlying, more serious problem.

Tech-Enabled

Always using the latest personal technology to deliver the best care experience.

Our app and care team enable you to access a WorldClinic physician in less than a minute from anywhere in the world. We keep technology simple, organized and user-friendly while ensuring optimal information security. Our EMR allows our physicians to look at any member’s full medical record at any moment. By calling our physicians via the iOS app, it links to our EMR and shows us in real time where you are located enabling rapid referrals and speedy treatment.

Comprehensive

Transfer all of the worry to us.

Organizations can rest assured that WorldClinic will manage emerging risks and mitigate immediate health threats to their busy mobile executives, while individuals and families can transfer the worry of a new medical problem to a WorldClinic doctor and team that will own it, start to finish.

Why Us

We are seasoned board-certified veteran practitioners at the top of our fields. We don’t just offer advice on medical treatment; we diagnose and direct treatment for our members. We are loyal only to our members—not insurance companies, specific providers or hospitals.

When medical issues arise, our clients can reach a dedicated and familiar doctor within 30 seconds anywhere they are in the world and on any device. This means no scheduling appointments and no long waiting room lines. World-class medical care begins immediately, and our physicians and care team remain actively involved in our members’ healthcare journeys, owning the entire process, until and after their problems are resolved.

For emergency situations and treating acute illness, our clients are equipped from day one with a personal Prescription Medical Kit (PMK). The PMK is stocked with an array of prescriptions and over-the-counter medications which enables WorldClinic physicians to begin treatment immediately.

Beyond treating immediate illnesses, we work closely with your current physicians to help ensure that you personally benefit from the latest longevity/prevention science and have access to emerging therapies and cutting-edge interventions for more serious illness.
