Hurricane Florence + Telehealth Brings Out The Best in the Medical Community

As Hurricane Florence barrels toward the east coast, with the potential to leave a devastating path of storm surge damage and flooding in its wake over the weekend. In response, hundreds of doctors and healthcare professionals are reaching out to Enzyme and our clients to see how they can help those impacted. Many telehealth organizations, including two of Enzyme Health’s clients, Doctor on Demand, and MDLIVE are gathering resources to help affected communities, offering free access to their services for those who may not be able to access local healthcare providers during and after the storm.
