Baton Rouge-based LocalMed is an online scheduling platform that allows patients to find dental providers and book appointments in real-time with the ability to customize their own reminders via text, email or voice notifications. The company recently announced their partnership with United Concordia Dental Insurance, providing participating dentists with a 20% discount off of LocalMed’s published rate.
“Our goal is to enable patients to connect and schedule with providers in a simpler more efficient manner than in the past,” says Keith English, CEO of LocalMed. “Partnering with United Concordia means bringing convenience to patients and a much more efficient office to their participating providers.”
Both companies share the same goal of wanting to provide the convenience of real-time scheduling that will benefit all parties involved, according to English.
United Concordia is one of the largest dental insurers in the country with more than 98,700 dentists and over six million members.
The scheduling platform allows patients to find dental providers and book appointments in real time. Vice President of Network Operations and Service at United Concordia Jim Shade says the partnership will offer an innovative service that can help improve office efficiency and patient convenience. “After learning about LocalMed’s capabilities and their focus on convenience for dentists and their patients, we felt this partnership would deliver a practical service using cutting edge technology at a discounted price to our dentists.”
