Leading virtual care doctors recognized for their expertise and contributions
We’re proud to announce the Top Doctor 2018 award winners. The Top Doctor award recognizes the highest performing, most clinically astute, virtual care doctors in the United States. This is the sixth consecutive year the Top Doctor award has been given to physicians for their outstanding contributions to help patients.
Top Doctor is the only national award recognizing the performance of virtual care doctors. In order to be eligible, doctors must be licensed in the US, in good standing, pass a background check, and have completed training in virtual care. To achieve distinction as a Top Doctor, physicians must complete rigorous amounts of case reviews, symptom assessments, and other patient treatment activities on the HealthTap virtual care platform.
“HealthTap is proud to recognize Top Doctors for their helpfulness, compassion, and clinical acumen. Doctors who achieve Top Doctor awards represent the best doctors who apply their expertise to help people in their community and on a global scale,” said HealthTap’s Chief Medical Officer, Geoff Rutledge, MD, Ph.D.
Virtual care doctors are demonstrating incredible skill and experience
The Top Doctor awards are based on a doctor’s performance – measured by how many people the doctors’ contributions help. Awards are bestowed for each specialty at the national, state, and regional levels.
Previous winners have noted how this award has positively influenced their practice. Longtime virtual care practitioner and multiple Top Doctor award winner Andrew Murphy, MD explained, “As the world of medicine integrates digital platforms into patient education and care, it is imperative that physicians recognize and transform their practices to continue to improve patient care. To be recognized by my peers as a leader in this area is humbling and validates the importance of adopting technologic advances in healthcare delivery.”
Top Doctors represent the leaders in the expanding world of virtual care which continues to grow in popularity. HealthTap would like to thank all of its more than 120,000 doctor members who have joined in to accelerate healthcare innovation over the years.
