San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2011
Mevident, Inc. (https://www.mevident.com), a provider of wellness services for payers and employers, today unveiled a new web platform that helps wellness practitioners collaborate with one another to maximize the wellness of their clients. Use of the web platform is free for practitioners and their clients.
Through a social networking-like user interface on Mevident’s web platform, wellness practitioners including chiropractors, psychologists, naturopathic doctors, nutritionists, and personal fitness trainers can connect directly with clients to review wellness assessment results, build wellness records, and share recommendations. Practitioners can work together with other practitioners to provide holistic care for their clients.
“Wellness practitioners are ready to adopt new IT technology that brings coordinated care for the improved health of their clients,” said Ricky Fishman, DC, wellness advisor to Mevident. “Building a web collaboration platform makes sense.”
“We need to start viewing each patient as a whole person, not simply as a diagnosis to treat,” says Stephen Ducat, ND, PhD., advisor to Mevident. “Optimizing wellness requires attention to body, mind, lifestyle, and relationships. Web technologies have tremendous opportunities to bring all practitioners together to create a holistic wellness service.”
“There is an increasing prevalence of chronic illness and a shortage of primary care. In this crisis, wellness practitioners who are clinically trained are becoming a critical force in the healthcare industry,” says Peter Hung, MD., Co-Founder of Mevident.
Mevident is currently recruiting highly qualified wellness practitioners in the San Francisco Bay Area to be the beta users of its platform. Eligibility criteria for accessing the site is published on the site at https://www.mevident.com/providers/eligibility.
