MCKINNEY, Texas, April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MyTelemedicine, a national telehealth service and technology provider, is pleased to announce the launch of the first-ever web and mobile Telehealth Advanced Application Programming Interface (API). The unveiling of the new API presents healthcare and wellness companies with a tool to seamlessly integrate Real-time physician access by secure Video and Telephone, to create a customized telehealth experience for their patients and members.
Handheld medical applications are changing the healthcare landscape. Today, there are over 40,000 medical apps available in the Apple store alone. Close to seventy percent of these apps are intended for consumers and do little more than provide information. During a recent interview, Rey Colon, Founder and CEO of MyTelemedicine, made these comments: "The MyTelemedicine Advanced API allows us to reach the entire global digital healthcare market and truly encourage the adoption of telehealth."
The instant availability of freshly updated patient history coupled with real-time secure video and voice technology, enables physicians to make more accurate and speedy patient diagnosis. The consulting physicians can view the patient's HIPAA-compliant electronic health records, including past medical history, previously diagnosed conditions, current medications, and allergies. Physicians' SOAP notes and comments are immediately uploaded to the member's health records for future reference and all diagnosis's are attached with an ICD code for claims processing.
Healthcare has been trailing behind technology for a long time and MyTelemedicine has taken on the necessary responsibility of merging this landscape with the maturing cloud infrastructure to serve the mounting population… when they need it AND how they need it. "Leveraging the latest in Cloud-based technologies, our platform was built to be flexible and scalable," says Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Jesse Roach. "We took an API-first approach which enables healthcare organizations to quickly develop feature-rich applications using the MyTelemedicine Advanced API." That's an important distinction because there are many solutions out there but most of them do not serve their users in a friendly, easy to use way.
Telemedicine has added a new paradigm to healthcare. Physicians have discovered an incredible income stream through this modern healthcare medium. It gives them more freedom and flexibility. They are now able to effortlessly expand their practice, income, and the distractions of administrative tasks become a thing of the past.
Americans have warmly embraced the concept of telehealth and it has been growing at exponential rates. The company has seen an increase in demand as there are endless possibilities of providing consumers with real-time access to physicians, creating a better healthcare experience.
MyTelemedicine.com has developed a proprietary, secure and HIPAA-compliant telemedicine platform that enables healthcare providers to consult with patients remotely. Physicians can perform on-demand consultations with members nationwide via telephone and video technology, and patients can seek advice, recommendations and a diagnosis, which may include a prescription for common acute illnesses. The company's goal is to make quality and cost-effective care accessible to all. To learn more about MyTelemedicine.com please visit http://www.mytelemedicine.com.
