Amalgamated Medical Care Management’s Nurse2DOConnect Offers Easy to Use Features:

  • Individuals with a non-emergency medical problem or question simply call into a dedicated toll free line staffed by experienced Registered Nurses (RNs), all based in the United States. If a member has a medical emergency, we encourage them to proceed to the nearest emergency center.
  • The nurse conducts a virtual intake recording all contact information and symptoms/reason for the call.
  • Able to receive calls in over 50 languages including Spanish, German and French. Available in all 50 states, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
  • The nurse updates the patient’s Electronic Health Record (EHR), along with all symptoms and triages the call.
  • The nurse assists the patient directly or transitions the call through the Nurse2DOConnect platform to the next level of medical support – either to a physician for a telemedicine call, health advocate or behavioral health professional.
  • If the intake call is transitioned to a physician based on the member’s need, the physician will recommend a treatment plan. This may include a prescription to the member’s pharmacy of their choice.
