MDconnectME, which is patient-consented, simplifies workflow for staff to increase and improve patient-family communication.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
MDconnectME, a leading digital health solution for doctor-patient-family communication, has announced it will make complimentary service available to all Boston area hospitals inundated in the wake of this week’s Boston Marathon bombing. The Boston area hospitals which received nearly 150 patients on Monday, including Boston Children’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston City Hospital, and Tufts Medical Center, should contact the company at info(at)MDconnectME(dot)com.
MDconnectME has been used to communicate surgical updates to concerned family members across the globe in some of the most extreme conditions. During the week of Sandy for example, surgeons in a New York hospital were able to update patient-families in Europe and other parts of the world, while some area hospital communication capabilities were disabled from updating patient-families across the river.
MDconnectME can be used on any web-enabled device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop) and since all the updates are pre-filled and the family/friend-contacts are pre-selected by the patient, it simplifies the workflow for staff to increase and improve patient-family communication.
According to CEO, Scott Anzel, “This tragedy has touched all of us to some degree or another, and it's a privilege to be able to offer our service to the Boston area hospitals in order to securely synchronize patient-family communication, alleviating stress for everyone involved.”
