Common Questions

Why Choose Avance Care as your on-site Healthcare provider?

The Avance Healthpod offers more capabilities than many other on-site clinic offerings and is backed by the Avance Care healthcare delivery system.

With an unparalleled standard of care, 15 Triangle locations (and growing), and convenience that saves patients time and money, Avance Care offers a complete and integrated healthcare experience.

What is the investment required for an on-site healthcare offering?
The Avance HealthPod was developed with an emphasis on value, and installation and operation are competitively priced accordingly. The Avance Care team will be happy to discuss overall investment scenarios and options to ensure the right fit that benefits your bottom line. We’re offering to place one HealthPod at a Wake County location at no cost.
What will the employee experience be like?

Employee engagement with the Avance HealthPod starts with the Avance Health Assistant mobile app, Carin, which helps guide them to the right resource for their needs – whether it’s on-site, near-site, or virtual.

When visiting the HealthPod, employees are greeted by a trained medical assistant who will guide them through the entire visit. Materials, such as brochures and an explanatory video, are available for employees who would like more information before entering. These materials will also be provided to employer partners to distribute to employees as part of the Avance HealthPod rollout; on-site demos can be done by trained Avance Care team members as needed to ensure employee comfort.

How disruptive will the Avance Healthpod be to my office?

Installation and ongoing operation of the Avance HealthPod is designed to be as minimally invasive as possible in order to ensure you can maintain business as usual. Installation of the eco-friendly, pre-manufactured HealthPod with a footprint of approximately 100 sq. ft. (the size of a typical exam room) occurs quickly on-site with minimal disturbance in the location of your choosing.

If you prefer, a room of approximately this size can be equipped to be your on-site Avance HealthPod. Within a few days, skilled technicians complete the assembly process. Dust, noise, and damage to the existing site landscape are dramatically reduced with the streamlined production process.

What types of conditions can the Avance Healthpod address?
The Avance HealthPod offers a wider scope of services than traditional telemedicine visits. Patients can seek care for 80+ conditions as well as preventive care services. While a complete list of conditions treated can be provided at request, common conditions include: respiratory infection, sore throat, pain in back, neck, or limbs, cough, urinary tract infection, headache, allergies, fever, cold and flu symptoms, rash and other minor skin conditions, insomnia, emergency contraception, vaccination, depression, high blood pressure, chronic condition follow-ups, routine exams, and physicals.
