TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Advantec, an innovative provider of HR, Payroll and Benefits services to small and mid-sized businesses, announced today a new partnership with Teladoc, the nation's leading provider of telehealth medical consultations.
All Advantec clients will have the option to offer Teladoc's services to their employees. Teladoc is a national network of board-certified physicians that provide telehealth consultations 24/7, using detailed medical histories to diagnose and recommend treatment for common and routine illnesses via telephone and video consults.

We are always looking for products and services to further the health of our clients and the organizational health of their businesses. Teladoc will help our clients by reducing time and productivity lost due to the minor illnesses of employees and their dependents," said Bill Zint, Vice President of Product Innovation at Advantec.
Advantec expects that its clients who utilize Teladoc will see fewer sick days, increased productivity from a more consistently healthy workforce, and reduced health care costs resulting from fewer emergency room visits.
"By offering its clients access to Teladoc's network of board-certified physicians, Advantec is demonstrating its commitment to quality and innovation. Our physicians offer care to those who need it by resolving medical issues at a fraction of the cost and time of visits to urgent care facilities, emergency departments, and doctor's offices. This partnership is just one more way that Advantec is taking a holistic view of healthcare and finding new ways to mitigate increasing access to care problems, improve client satisfaction, and reduce costs," said Jason Gorevic, Teladoc CEO.
