LAS VEGAS, NV (February 26, 2018)—Medici, the app designed for doctors, by doctors continues to revolutionize how doctors and patients communicate. Medici will announce at the HIMMS18 Conference the launch of Colleague Chat, a new feature that allows doctors to easily communicate with peers, filling a primary need to facilitate collaboration in reaching the highest standard of patient care.
With this feature, doctors can now invite their peers to communicate securely on Medici to discuss shared patients, verify treatment options, provide or solicit second opinions, generate new referrals into a specialty practice and more, improving patient outcomes and satisfaction.
Peer-to-peer communication is vital to provide the excellent care patients expect and deserve. Primary Care Physicians often need access to specialists to verify patient care options and to attain better insights into the appropriate management plan for patients with challenging healthcare situations. In addition, less experienced health workers can access support from colleagues to validate the course of patient treatment and better serve the needs of their patients. Collaboration also plays a crucial role in the reduction of medical errors.
The “team” approach that is an integral part of on-site practices and in hospitals can now be employed and leveraged into the realm of virtual healthcare, saving doctors and their patients precious time and cost, all in the Medici secure and convenient app.
“We could not be more excited to revolutionize communication between doctors and their patients,” says Medici Founder, Clint Phillips. “It’s just one of the many ways we will continue to make doctors’ lives easier and more secure while finding ways for them to earn from their expertise.”
Medici is a value-add to patients and doctors alike, offering an immediate cost and time saving to the patient and a more balanced work life for the doctor. With 54% of doctors reporting they are “burned out” and 80% feeling “overextended,” the Medici app helps address these issues by increasing the opportunity for more flexible scheduling and better continuity of patient care.
Doctors can start communicating with their peers on Medici by downloading the Medici for Doctors app for free via the App Store or Google Play.
Medici is the future of the doctor-patient relationship, enabling users to text or video chat with their existing medical providers—including primary care physicians, pediatricians, specialists, therapists, veterinarians, dentists and more—through a HIPAA-compliant app. Medici reconnects the continuum of care by centralizing all patient records created by doctors signed up within the app including prescription requests, communications and interactions with medical providers onto a single platform. Medici’s leadership comprises executives from Amazon, Google and 2nd.MD. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Medici has offices in Johannesburg, Paris and Washington DC. Learn more at medici.md
