Telemedicine Provider MeMD Announces Nicholas Lorenzo, MD, MHCM, CPE as Chief Medical Officer

Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

Online medical service provider MeMD has appointed Dr. Nicholas Lorenzo as its new Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Lorenzo joins the MeMD executive team with over 25 years of healthcare experience. “I am thrilled to be a part of this remote treatment model, telemedicine. This is the type of technology we talked about when I was in medical school, that someday we could treat people across the country. It seemed very high-tech, yet now it is here and it hasn't been that long,” says Dr. Lorenzo.

After receiving his BS with Honors from Creighton University in 1984, he earned his MD at the University Of Nebraska College Of Medicine with High Distinction in 1988, completed his CPE (Certified Physician Executive) in 2011, and went on to earn his Master of Science in Healthcare Management with High Distinction from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2014. He completed his subspecialty, fellowship, and board-certified clinical training at the Mayo Clinic and at the University Of Kansas Medical Center.

Experienced within the medical field, Dr. Lorenzo brings knowledge of healthcare publishing, healthcare law, and healthcare technology to the MeMD team. As an entrepreneur in the field, he founded an urgent care staffing company, a healthcare consulting firm, and two of the world’s largest online healthcare education systems. Dr. Lorenzo also has a strong background in health education – he has presented over 1,000 live lecture courses, and has over 300 publications in journals, books, online medical references, and the lay press.

“MeMD is a fast-moving telehealth company available in all 50 states, and their ability to take advantage of the latest technology in a timely fashion while consistently delivering quality patient care is unmatched in the industry,” adds Dr. Lorenzo. “Telemedicine will help to increase access to doctors while decreasing cost, which has always been an issue in our healthcare system. Over time, we will even be able to provide better specialty care. I believe that telemedicine will help improve every parameter of healthcare.”

Dr. Lorenzo’s responsibilities include oversight of the MeMD provider network and clinical team, evaluating new treatments and procedures, developing robust guidelines for consistency of clinical care, and working on strategic initiatives with the MeMD executive team.
