Founder of MeMD, John Shufeldt, Interviewed on Money Radio to Discuss the Future of the American Healthcare System

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) September 06, 2013

John Shufeldt, founder and CEO of MeMD, was the guest on Money Radio’s “On Air Healthcare” with Steve Rees on Monday, Aug 12, 2013.

    The radio show centers on the American Healthcare System; Monday’s interview focused on the future changes in the structure of healthcare delivery and how they will affect all Americans. Shufeldt went on the air to discuss virtual healthcare and how it will alter patient care practices.

    Rees began the segment by introducing Shufeldt and the telemedicine company, A leading provider of online medical care, MeMD is a convenient and affordable way to be treated for a variety of common ailments. The company was the focal point of the show because it is, as Shufeldt explained, the future of healthcare.

    “For years we have been dealing with primary care physicians, specialists, emergency rooms, urgent cares, and some of the pressures financially on the industry have developed some emerging alternative ways to treat people when they have primary care type issues,” said Rees.

    Shufeldt started MeMD due to the lack of primary care providers, the high costs of urgent care and emergency room visits, and recent technological advances. Telemedicine is an alternative and efficient way to treat patients that will benefit the consumer and the future of healthcare. Rees said he thinks virtual healthcare is a meaningful and beneficial way for delivering care today and for the future. MeMD provides a “natural way for the consumer to access the advice of a physician,” said Rees.

    Rees and Shufeldt discussed technology as a new and innovative model of care delivery. “You’d be amazed at what you can do virtually,” said Shufeldt. MeMD offers an easy and effective way to see a medical provider from the comfort of the patient’s home. The convenience of telemedicine, which utilizes webcams as a technological vehicle, is far reaching.

    “I can virtually examine patients using a HIPAA compliant webcam,” said Shufeldt. MeMD provides a safe and secure environment and protects patient health information. Shufeldt said it is important to preserve the patient doctor relationship, all visits, by phone or webcam, are private.

    Speaking with a medical provider online is a valuable and economical alternative to an emergency room or urgent care center. MeMD providers are generally physicians or nurse practitioner and licensed in the state. They want to provide an alternate form of care for their patients, according to Shufeldt. They are able to treat a variety of common ailments, from a sore throat to a urinary tract infection. The providers are using technology to care for their patients and write prescriptions when necessary. Shufeldt said their providers are phenomenal, they provide a valuable service at an affordable cost.

    According to Shufeldt, the telehealth company tries to make things as easy as possible. “It has to be transparent.” The cost per visit is one simple price, $49.95. All you need to do is log on when you have a heath question or health concern, said Shufeldt At the end of the day, with or without a prescription, the patient gets treated.

“As demand goes up and supply goes down you have to look for alternative ways to deliver the same quality, compassion, and care,” said Shufeldt. “For many things we see, virtual healthcare works very well.”

According to "On Air Healthcare", in 2013 the telehealth market will grow 55% and the global telehealth market is expected to double from $11.6 billion in 2011 to $27 billion in 2016.
