HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
The Rounds, a professional networking site exclusive to Canadian physicians, today unveiled a makeover to offer faster, more efficient, features and tools to thousands of doctors.
As Canada’s fastest growing professional social network, The Rounds is entirely HIPAA and PIPEDA compliant, meaning it's the most efficient way for doctors to collaborate across geographic boundaries in a completely secure manner. Clinical collaborations that were once only possible over the phone or via fax machine are now possible with a few keystrokes and clicks of a mouse.
“The Canadian healthcare system is lagging in adoption of technology writ large,” said Blair Ryan, CEO of The Rounds. “However, what we’ve seen is that individual doctors are moving away from personal pagers and analog fax machines and looking for innovative ways to use web and mobile-based technology in their practices. Our new product allows physicians to collaborate with the speed and ease of Twitter and Facebook while remaining compliant.”
The Rounds launch includes the following features:
- Rounds (Groups) arms physicians with the ability to create their very own communities. These groups provide a community where physicians can collaborate and connect with other physicians. For example, a general practitioner in Toronto can now connect with other general practitioners found specifically in that region. Additionally, this feature allows alumni or groups of specialists to collaborate privately on unique patient cases.
- Create A Case is a new design built for collaboration that allows Canadian physicians to upload a patient's situation along with x-rays, images and any other relevant information that their colleagues can study and provide thoughts and clarity.
- Send Secure Messages is now redesigned to make private messaging easier than ever with the entire system remaining HIPAA & PIPEDA compliant.
- Revamped User Profile is a new design to manage and control profiles including the ability to highlight their publications, appointments, awards and interests.
The Rounds now delivers all of these high-value features while maintaining a commitment to patient and physician privacy. Along with being HIPAA and PIPEDA compliant, The Rounds adheres to strict guidelines ensuring only Canadian physicians in good-standing are able to access the network's information and resources.This means each member is contacted and personally vetted before being given a login and password.
In addition, The Rounds continues to work with industry partners such as the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP), the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada (SRPC) and other associations ensuring their members can deliver better care.
