The Wall Street Journal – July 07, 2021 – Remote critical care and specialist physician services provider Intercept TeleMed, Inc., www.intercepttelemed.com, announced the addition of Richard Boxer MD, a former US Presidential advisor, nationally recognized figure in public health service, and former Chief Medical Officer of Teladoc (NYSE TDOC) to its senior management team. Dr. Boxer is also credited with creating the first medical guidelines for evidence-based telemedicine and industry standards for telemedicine Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement.

“Intercept TeleMed is an innovative company that is providing on-demand, low cost access and specialist care to hospitals and health systems. Their proprietary, disruptive technology and professional staff bring state-of-the art full and continuous tele-intensive care to health systems, hospitals, and remote critical care facilities,” said Boxer.

He has deep and relevant experience innovating and then managing, recruiting, and standardizing the quality of care for a national network of Board-Certified physicians. He has many years of service as a Presidential policy advisor, working with the Department of Health and Human Services, as advisor to HHS secretaries, senators, representatives, and governors. He was a finalist for US Surgeon General in both the Bill Clinton and George W Bush Administrations, on the Board of two Institutes of the NIH, and was a private citizen representative to the World Health Organization.  He is credited with building the clinical program for Teladoc (TDOC), that enabled it to expand from humble beginnings to well over 5,000,000 members.
