Esteemed Emergency Medicine Physician Appointed to TeleHealth World Magazine Editorial Advisory Board
Date:10/30/2008

Dr. Elliot Justin, Founder of SwiftMD, to Contribute and Select Editorial Content

NEW YORK, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to continuously deliver diverse, stimulating content to its readers, TeleHealth World Magazine recently appointed Dr. Elliot Justin, founder of SwiftMD, to its esteemed editorial advisory board.

As a board-certified emergency physician and current CEO of Pegasus Emergency Group, a leader in emergency department quality and customer satisfaction, Dr. Justin brings with him more than thirty years of experience in the field of emergency medicine. His background gives him a unique perspective on the needs of concerned patients - particularly the lack of options available to them during a health-related emergency.

"Telemedicine will revolutionize healthcare," explained Dr. Justin. "Crucial to this revolution, however, is the ongoing education of physicians, employers and health plan providers about the benefits of telemedicine and the growing need among consumers for healthcare options and flexibility."

TeleHealth World serves the rapidly expanding fields of telehealth, telemedicine and connected healthcare. A comprehensive news and analysis resource for healthcare and technology providers, TeleHealth World is a resource for those who are leading today's revolution in remotely monitored and administered healthcare, medical treatment and fitness/wellness enhancement.

As a member of the board, Dr. Justin will play an active role in the contribution, discussion and selection of relevant, emerging issues surrounding the telemedicine industry.

Dr. Justin continued, "My appointment to the TeleHealth World advisory board affords me the opportunity to assist in the selection of pertinent, timely and informative articles for inclusion in the magazine, thereby ensuring physicians are armed with the information they need to make educated decisions regarding the use of telemedicine."

Dr. Justin's advisory board member profile can be viewed at http://www.telehealthworld.com/TH_advisoryboard.php.

SwiftMD is the first telemedicine company staffed exclusively with board-certified emergency medicine physicians, available 24/7 to diagnose and treat non-critical healthcare problems. SwiftMD targets individual consumers and sponsoring health plans, along with employers and government agencies desiring quality and convenience, while decreasing healthcare costs.

Later this fall, SwiftMD members will have access to enhanced benefits that will include bi-directional video consultations with SwiftMD doctors.
