Using high-speed internet by Medina Fiber to Improve Healthcare

Did you know that high-speed internet is turning from a nice-to-have to a must-have as healthcare technology advances? Having access to reliable, fast internet is not just about watching a funny cat video on your phone–it’s also how many people are beginning to connect with healthcare providers quickly, easily, and at a lower cost.

Medina Fiber has partnered with telehealth provider Docity to help our communities do just that: get medical care quickly, reliably, and without losing hours of your day visiting a doctor. Traditional doctor visits, while sometimes necessary, often require unpaid leave from work and come with the risk of exposure to other sick people in the waiting room. 

Docity was founded by James Cowan, a veteran and father four who wanted to find a better way to access healthcare. He says,

We can order a pizza with an emoji, but the average American still has to wait 24 days for an appointment and lose over two hours of their life to visit the doctor. The economic costs outside of healthcare in lost time, wages, and mental health is staggering. Our kids deserve better.

Docity, like Medina Fiber, is dedicating to serving our communities in a better way.

Telehealth is a convenient and affordable option that allows you to talk to a local doctor who can diagnose, recommend treatment, and prescribe medication, when appropriate, for many of your medical issues. Docity is a connected health platform that allows doctors to communicate face-to-face through a smartphone, tablet, or computer. 

Docity allows customers to simply add on affordable telehealth services to your existing Medina Fiber bill at a low monthly cost. Medina Fiber customers can get connected to Docity Health and get started today by signing up here.
