Walmart Health Virtual Care enables organizations to offer affordable and accessible telehealth visits to millions of members nationwide through a secure, easy-to-use platform. Operated by a team of diverse professionals with proven track records in healthcare leadership, IT and operations, we’ve staked a reputation as an industry trailblazer with the most flexible, convenient virtual care services available.
Originally founded as MeMD in 2010 by an ER physician and entrepreneur, the company first aimed to provide virtual care for common illnesses and injuries seen in an urgent care or ER. The goal was to disrupt the healthcare space by delivering easier access to care through online and phone visits.
After more than a decade of expanding our team, innovating our technologies and launching more in-demand service lines, we joined the Walmart Health family, reinforcing the commitment to integrated, omnichannel healthcare that leverages data and technology to improve engagement, health equity and outcomes. This transition has allowed us to provide best-in-class care to more people than ever.
Since our founding, our solutions have mitigated cost and accessibility barriers for patients while helping employers boost utilization and increase ROI. We’ve been on the forefront of telehealth innovation, continually stepping up to meet the nation’s needs by seeking out new ways to streamline our offerings. In turn, we've provided peace of mind and quality care to millions of members in times of uncertainty, from the pandemic to nationwide provider shortages.
As evidence, we were among the first to introduce telebehavioral health in 2018. Our confidential therapy, telepsychiatry and teen therapy services are critical for addressing workforce mental health concerns. We also led the charge with a comprehensive virtual primary care program, offering wellness visits, chronic care management and more to enhance long-term health outcomes.
Known for our innovation and adaptability, Walmart Health Virtual Care will continue to disrupt the system and carry out our mission of providing accessible, simplified care to all.
