Doctor Care Anywhere Group (DOC) has announced the launch of a new operating model.

Doctor Care Anywhere’s operating model is expanding from offering a single choice of 20-minute virtual GP consultations to offering various options based on a patient’s clinical need.

Patients will now be able to visit a GP in 15 or 20-minute sessions and obtain a prescription without the requirement for video or phone consultations.

Additionally, patients will also be able to have a 20-minute consultation with an advanced nurse practitioner, these nurses are licensed to make decisions in the assessment, diagnostics and treatment of patients and to prescribe medication.

This new operating model will better meet the challenge of clinical workforce shortages and ever-increasing healthcare demand, the company said.

Doctor Care is a UK-based telehealth company that delivers patient experience and clinical care digitally, using its proprietary platform.

The company has also announced that it has entered into a variation of its master service agreement with its strategic partner, AXA PPP Healthcare Group.

This variation will contribute to Doctor Care Anywhere’s improved margins and profitability, with these benefits commencing in the fourth quarter of 2021.

On the market, DOC was up 10.8 per cent and is trading at 46 cents per share at 12:46 pm AEDT.
