InRoomMD Introduces a New Idea for Travelers’ Aid

First-of-its Kind Concept Offers Affordable Hotel Room ‘House Calls’ For Those Sick While Traveling

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 21 /PRNewswire/ — Andy Jacobson, local entrepreneur and co-founder of InRoomMD, a Charlotte-based corporation now serving travelers to the Las Vegas, Nev., market with one-hour, immediate access to quality medical care administered whenever possible in the comfort and privacy of the traveler’s hotel room, announced plans for expanding its unique service to other major domestic U.S. travel markets.

According to Jacobson, “Dr. Cary Logan, a practicing physician in the Las Vegas market, and I developed a nationwide model for quality and affordable travelers’ healthcare services based on his 10-year pioneering medical practice of providing hotel house calls. Our company will establish similar healthcare services for major domestic travel destinations in the months ahead.” Services offered by InRoomMD include 24-hour-a-day hotel room doctor visits, prescriptions refills, emergency dental and ophthalmology care, discounted chiropractic referrals and much more. For more details on services, visit www.inroommd.com .

Described as a Travel Healthcare Concierge Service(TM), InRoomMD is not an insurance plan. Rather, it is a subscription service available to travelers prior to their departure on vacations or business trips. Subscriptions for a seven-day trip cost $28 and a ten-day trip, $40. Subscriptions are available through travel professionals and various travel companies and can also be purchased on the InRoomMD website or by phone at 866-909-7666.

According to Andy Dinkin, vice president for sales and marketing for the company, “We are working aggressively to expand our area of operations to the most popular U.S. travel destinations such as Orlando, Fla., Phoenix and Scottsdale, Ariz., and Washington, D.C. among several others.”

According to a recent national survey on illness and injury among 1,585 American travelers, the greatest medical concern is suffering an emergency such as sudden illness or an accident while traveling. InRoomMD helps reduce such apprehension by providing prompt medical service (generally within one hour from contact) with its unique house call feature. Based on location and the length of the travel stay and for a nominal charge at time of service, when a traveler needs medical treatment, InRoomMD will provide an American- trained, board certified, fully credentialed physician for consultation and/or “house call” to the hotel room. As a subscriber, the entire cost for services, including any appropriate prescriptions, will be covered for no more than a $20.00 service fee.

Founded in 2004 by Andy Jacobson and Dr. Cary Logan, MD, InRoomMD is a Nevada corporation with headquarters in Charlotte, N.C. The company offers a subscription-based, Travel Healthcare Concierge Program(TM) to travelers with access to American-trained, board certified physicians, dentists, ophthalmologists and specialists who will visit in the privacy and comfort of the traveler’s hotel room. Corporate offices are located at 8041 Corporate Center Drive, Charlotte, N.C. 28226. For more information, call 704-643-7205 or visit the company website at www.inroommd.com .
