Need a Doctor Right Now? Book one in less than a minute, using Dr. Now™. For decades, Health Care executives have searched for solutions to 3 problems plaguing the Health Care System: 1) How to cut the cost of Health Care 2) How to help make doctors become more productive and 3) How to increase patient access to good doctors. The answers to these problems have eluded the experts; as the system falls deeper into debt each year, doctors are working harder for less pay as patients watch their family health care expenses increase, while their access to quality care declines. Dr. Now™ was introduced today on http://www.Cincinnati.MD by the health care innovators at YourCity.MD and is expected to be the answer to all 3 problems across the country using the http://www.YourCity.MD local city platform. Dr. Now™ – Where Patient Need meets Doctor Supply.
Dr. Now™ is one of the most exciting features ever introduced to the health care community. Now, any doctor in any specialty or primary care can list and offer an open appointment or last minute cancellation to the public in just seconds. Open appointments can be easily found by any person who needs that doctor's help right away. With this new web tool, a person with an unexpected medical need can find the right doctor with an open appointment right away. An added bonus for doctors is another new tool that allows the .MD city site to track and report the patients booking these open appointments.
Dr Russ Vester, CMO of YourCity.MD and Chief of Surgery at Jewish Hospital said, “With Dr. Now™ everyone wins. A person can find the right doctor right away for those times when their own doctor is not available, so any doctor can now fill openings in his or her schedule to have a more productive day. In turn, health care costs are kept down by keeping people out of the Emergency Room that don’t need to be there.”
It used to be that people with unexpected medical problems ended up in the emergency room if their own doctor was not available. With Dr. Now™ this is no longer necessary. You simply go to your local YourCity.MD city web site, click the Dr. Now™ button and find a doctor with an immediate opening in the specialty you need.
"We are also announcing a new tracking system to help measure ROI for practices using the new Dr. Now™ feature to book appointments. Dr. Now™ is being offered FREE to every Doctor in the USA through March 1, 2012 so Doctors can test its effectiveness without any risk or cost” said CEO Joe Benza, Jr. of YourCity.MD LLC.
Employers have yet another reason to be happy with their recommendation of YourCity.MD to their employees, as PCMH doctors will have immediate free access to the new tools and are expected to be the first to take advantage of the new feature.
