We are the largest physician-founded, peer-referenced medical group providing inpatient telemedicine in the U.S.
Our founders, two cardiologists and a pulmonary & critical care physician, were frustrated by the limited access to timely, quality care.
They handpicked leading board-certified and board-eligible clinicians, and put them through a proprietary training to scale delivery of their elite care through telemedicine.
We differentiate ourselves through the quality of our physicians and our commitment to clinical excellence.
To maintain our elite level of care, only U.S. board-certified and board-eligible physicians from the top medical schools and working in leading health systems are eligible to join our practice. Every doctor on our staff has to have been referred by a current, credentialed Access Physicians physician.
Organic growth of our telemedicine physician team means we don't have to rely on recruiters, and lets us draw from top talent to keep risk low and physician quality - plus job satisfaction - high. All providers are state-licensed where they practice, and where your patients are located.
And yes, we have a waiting list.

Affordable FULL OR FRACTIONAL coverage
Telemedicine allows us to scale our physicians to serve more facilities each day, from 12-hours overnight to daytime hospitalist coverage, from specialty services to 24/7 tele-ICU.
When replacing in-house physicians with our specialists via telemedicine, we have seen price reductions of at least 30%.
We can provide the services. You can provide the services. Or we can even manage your physicians providing the services. We learned a long time ago you can't build enterprise-ready clinical programs when you are fighting turf wars.
If it’s not in your EMR, it didn’t happen. Our team works in your EMR in real-time to make sure that all clinical documentation is up to date and orders are entered into the patient record. This helps establish rapport with you on-site clinical team, lets us access your staff notes and histories, and vice versa, continuing that care conversation by providing our own documentation after each telemedicine encounter. As a bonus, there's no need for complicated data integration with yet another third-party software.
WE Work in your EMR
Each Access Physicians doctor completes proprietary, one-on-one training on the nuances of telemedicine and our etiquette protocols, which ensure consistent, positive experiences for patients and staff.
The training is the first telemedicine curriculum in the U.S. within an ACGME-accredited (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) residency program.
ACCREDITED TELEMEDICINE TRAINING
Immediate diagnostic and therapeutic decisions
Patients require the right care in the right time. Through telemedicine, our physicians are immediately available from the moment the patient arrives. Each clinical program is designed to minimize LOS and maximize DRG reimbursements.
Higher-acuity and site neutral patients
Many of our clients thought they would always have to transfer sicker patients. When we work together, you don’t have to transfer - you can see them on-site, and avoid fractured care and stress.
We are part of your medical staff, just like any other doctor. If something needs a formal peer review, it goes through the medical staff process you currently have in place. Our group has very high accountability standards for our providers so if an issue arises, we will address it directly with your Medical Executive Committee.
We select physician leaders within our group who focus on program development at your facility. Physician-led programs bridge the gap between administration and the physician workforce to align incentives and ensure compliance with system initiatives.
Literature demonstrates that the time to contact between nurses and physicians is crucial in improving patient safety. Our physicians quickly become integral members of your care team, working consistently at your facility, so your staff gets to know us on a first-name basis. While we target complex care, it’s important to us to work with you to maintain relationships with your team, and patients, across the continuum.
Key to improving outcomes is being proactive, not reactive, so we can rapidly evaluate any clinically significant change and intervene. We flip the communication convention: our physicians proactively contact your on-site staff to huddle before and during each shift. The result? Better communication that catches issues sooner and keeps staff engaged, which ensures patient safety and clinical outcomes remain the focus of each program.
Post shift DATA
We obtain real-time data from our physicians, allowing equally real-time feedback and evaluation of clinical issues and events.
