How does it work?

For Nurse Practitioners and Medical Doctors licensed to diagnose, treat and prescribe, use PointNurse to see new and exisiting patients online like you do in a clinic setting. Today, patients can find your profile by going to the PointNurse home page and selecting the state and time zone they are located in. In the future, you will be able to connect with your patients on your own branded page with your own clinic logo accessible by a hyperlink on your web site or social page.

For licensed RNs, LPNs, and med techs, PointNurse will send you notifications of telehealth projects that match your background, interest and licensure. Online training will be provided before you start any projects. These projects might include care coordination, coaching, case management, or disease management.

For other licensed professionals, you can use PointNurse to set up conseling sessions (ie. psychologists), or use PointNurse to coordinate and supervise activity with remote home health workers, for example.

What is the member-owner model?

This is one of the things that makes us unique. PointNurse believes all community members should be rewarded for contributing to the success of the community. In addition to being paid for actual consults or patient encounters, community members who record a minimum number of on-call hours, who actively take calls, and who achieve certain performance levels will earn credit towards future ownership of the community including earning a share of any profits.

Do I need my own insurance?

Nurse Practitioners and Medical Doctors or other clinicians conducting online clinics must carry their own insurance. RNs pariticpating in PointNurse projects will normally be covered by the payer contracting with the PointNurse Community. You will be notified in advance about the specific insurance requirements on a project by project basis.

Do you verify licenses?

Of course. We use several methods to verify and confirm your licenses and credentialing.

Can I work whenenver I want to? Can I control my own hours?

Yes, in your dashboard, you can turn your availability light on or off whenever you like. When it is turned on or green, you are indicating to the system that you are waiting for calls. If a patient selects your profile, you will receive an email notifying you of a patient request to visit with you online.

What computer equipment do I need?

You will need a PC or Mac running the Google Chrome or Firefox Browser with a camera. In the future, you will be able to use your iPad or Android tablet.
