Pediatric House Call App PediaQ Expands to Houston

Serving the The Woodlands Saturdays & Sundays 8am-8pm

APRIL 14, 2016 (DALLAS) - PediaQ, the app based solution for after-hours pediatric house calls based in Dallas, TX expands today to The Woodlands area of Houston in its first step outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

PediaQ is for parents who want to avoid waiting rooms and instead, use an app to receive a high quality, convenient, and immediate house call for their child when their pediatrician is not available. When a worried parent uses PediaQ, a pediatric specialist arrives within an hour and spends significant time with their child in the comfort and safety of their home, diagnoses the condition, and sends in a prescription if required. With high convenience and an overall cost that is less than urgent care centers or emergency rooms, PediaQ has rapidly captured parents’ attention. Since its launch in the fall of 2016, PediaQ has made almost 2,000 house call visits in the DFW area with 100% five star ratings, and is now bringing its service to The Woodlands.

PediaQ is only available on nights & weekends (when children seem to get sick the most) and accepts most insurances, so the consumer pays their normal co-pay plus a $25 convenience fee. PediaQ also works closely with the family pediatrician to make sure the highest level of care is continued, and strives to align with Children’s Hospitals in those markets where it launches its service.

On the expansion, CEO Jon O’Sullivan says, “With hundreds of 5-star ratings from parents, high convenience, and a lower cost of urgent care, as the only service of its type, our goal is to expand our service well beyond our launch markets in North Texas. The strong presence of and potential to work with large provider groups like Texas Children's Hospital, Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital or other provider groups in Houston, along with numerous growing family centered areas like The Woodlands, make Houston an ideal market for PediaQ to demonstrate its innovative platform and bring after-hours pediatric care back into the home.”

PediaQ is available in the app store or online at pediaq.care. If you are a Woodland’s family who uses PediaQ we would love to hear from you. To see our parent reviews or to send PediaQ a message, please look on our Facebook page: facebook.com/pediaq/
