Their enthusiasm, attention to detail and pure determination to deliver their telemedicine product to our organization in a timely effective manner was second to none. With over 4,000 employees this was no small undertaking and MeMD met the challenge head on, "said Tami Halliday, Benefit Manager of Maricopa Integrated Health System.
