SAN FRANCISCO, CA. and CHICAGO, IL. April 6th, 2020—TruckPark Inc., the digital parking leader and platform that connects carriers and truck drivers with safe, guaranteed parking – are thrilled to announce our newest partnership with GenieMD to deliver telehealth solutions to the transportation industry.
Through this strategic partnership, TruckPark and GenieMD provide an opportunity for truck drivers and carriers to receive accessibility to on-demand doctors. TruckPark users will have access to personal health records, communicate with doctors by text and video and question based asynchronous visits.
Truckers experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 — including fever, cough and shortness of breath, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — can easily access GenieMD’s telehealth services from the TruckPark App “services page” (available in Apple App Store and Google Play) There will be a $49 fee, payable by credit or debit card, for using GenieMD’s telehealth service.
We are excited to partner with TruckPark to offer our service to hardworking drivers, who play a critical role in our transportation industry: said Dr. Soheil Saadat, founder and CEO of GenieMD. Most of these drivers spend many days at a time on the road and away from home and often, when they need medical help, they are in unknown territories during off hours. By using our telemedicine platform, these hardworking individuals can have easy access to medical professionals, who can provide expert care and, if necessary, prescribe medication to the nearest pharmacy.
“Providing telehealth services to truckers is the future for the transportation industry,” said Anthony Petitte, co-founder and CEO of TruckPark Inc. “Drivers are not getting adequate rest, exercise and nutrition. Drivers with back pain to chronic conditions – we have talked to – said they would like to have access to on-demand doctors and we’re going to give it to them,” said Joshua Walls, co-founder and COO.
For a limited time, GenieMD will be offering its telemedicine services free of charge to help fight the spread of COVID-19 in 49 states. Download iVisit and use Promo Code BeatTheVirus at checkout.
