MDLiveCare First TeleHealth Provider to Launch on the Google Health Platform
Date:10/7/2009

New Service Brings Patients On-Demand Access to Health Care Online

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) October 7, 2009 -- MDLiveCare, an on-demand telehealth company, announced today at the Health2.0 conference in San Francisco a partnership with Google Health. The partnership includes the secure flow of medical data between MDLiveCare and Google Health, an online Personal Health Record (PHR). Specifically, any Google Health user that has an MDLiveCare HIPAA secure video, phone or email telehealth consultation with a board certified physician or mental health therapist will be able to share his or her medical records with the doctor in advance of the appointment and get records back after the appointment from that doctor.

The integration is the first of its kind on the Google platform, marking the introduction of telehealth services to Google Health's directory of online services.

"Patients remember less than 25% of what they're told when they consult with a doctor," said Bob Smoley, CEO of MDLiveCare. "By directly synchronizing the information that's shared during telehealth consultations with electronic patient health records, we're able to provide patients with a convenient solution to review their physician or therapist encounters, time and time again, which significantly increases patient awareness and treatment compliance. This integration allows us to further empower patients with better access to all of their health information and to provide a service unprecedented in medicine today."

MDLiveCare is also one of the first integrated services to offer up a complete history of the doctor's clinical notes in a patient's Google Health Account, allowing for enhanced portability and continuity of care.

"We are excited about our collaboration with MDLiveCare," said Roni Zeiger, M.D., Product Manager, Google Health. "Our users have been telling us that they want more access to convenience services, like being able to securely email, schedule, and consult a doctor online. MDLiveCare represents this type of online model. It allows our users the ability to access and use telehealth services with their medical data captured at the point of care."

MDLiveCare provides access to a national network of board certified physicians and licensed mental health therapists, including specialists in the fields of pediatrics and dermatology, through its unique and extensive services and software platform. Physicians credentialed to operate on the platform are required to pass a rigorous evaluation process that establishes their board certifications, clinical knowledge and patient manner, as well as their ability to operate the system. Once certified, network physicians and therapists interact with patients remotely and are able to diagnose and treat an extensive list of common conditions; in addition, they are able to order lab tests and write electronic prescriptions via the system's direct connection to one of the largest networks of labs and pharmacies in the country. At the heart of this integration with Google Health, patient's electronic personal health records can be used at the point-of-care by doctors.
