MDLIVE is a telemedicine company headquartered in Sunrise, Florida offering access to board-certified doctors and pediatricians.

MDLIVE is a telemedicine provider founded in 2009. The company provides patients, health plans, health systems and self-insured employers with access to board-certified doctors, pediatricians and licensed therapists. Consultations are performed via online video, phone or mobile app.

MDLIVE's telemedicine services are designed to replace ER or urgent care visits with licensed physicians in all 50 states for non-emergency issues, including sore throats, asthma, skin rash, fever and more. In addition to providing urgent care for over 50 routine medical conditions, MDLIVE also offers behavioral health therapy, in which licensed therapists consult with patients on issues such as marital problems, child behavior & learning issues, financial hardship and coping with loss and grief. MDLIVE also offers dermatology care for over 3,000 conditions of the skin, hair and nails in which licensed dermatologists provide asynchronous diagnoses and treatment plans for conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis. MDLIVE dermatologists can also perform "spot checks" from uploaded images to determine whether a patient may need to see a dermatologist in person to be examined and treated for skin cancer.

All MDLIVE medical consultations are conducted through a HIPAA and PHI-compliant platform. In addition to allowing patients to talk to a doctor from home or on the go, and if necessary, obtain an e-prescription, payers and providers can use MDLIVE to collect and share clinical data from patient medical records, lab results and in-home biometric devices for real-time risk assessments, wellness advice, diagnoses and treatment.
