ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MyOnCallDoc, an international leading telemedicine company that connects patients with providers, announced today the launch of a 60-day pilot program serving the transgender community.
MyOnCallDoc CEO Craig Zurman said, "The widely dispersed transgender community has a need for physicians that are specifically trained to manage transgender care. Our international platform is ideal for easily and effectively connecting patients with providers worldwide."
The formal partnership agreement with the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (wpath.org) provides health care to the transgender community members. The program is known as GenderCare.
As part of the agreement MyOnCallDoc's telehealth technology software platform, private branded for GenderCare, will on-board over 1,200 clinicians including physicians, psychiatrists, and psychologists, and who specialize in transgender care.
World Professional Association for Transgender Health President Dr. Jamison Green commented, "We are excited to offer telemedicine to our members and partner networks, making access to care easier than ever before. Our specialized clinicians will now be able to deliver care to transgender patients in the privacy of their homes. This is a big deal for trans* people who do not have ready access to quality care."
