iGenezen converts any space into a fully equipped exam room and best of all there’s no waiting room, redundant forms, exposure to contagions, or commuting.
New York, New York (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
iGenezen, Inc., the world’s first online brand for scheduling medical house calls, has begun the wide-scale revival of house calls with Manhattan. Since the dawn of medicine, where patients have been treated for primary health care has changed just twice, from the home, to the medical office. As house call services begin to pick up steam all across the country, the founders of iGenezen contend we’re on the brink of the next great shift: back to the home.
With iGenezen’s new service, patients can go online and order a primary care provider direct to their door. House calls can be performed in a bedroom, living room, dorm room, hotel room, conference room, or virtually anywhere the patient would like to be seen. “By having the provider come to you, the goal is to remove the hassle and wasted time of going to a doctor’s office in addition to improving health outcomes and reducing stress on an already burdened system,” said Landon Cole iGenezen’s CEO and Co-Founder, “iGenezen converts any space into a fully equipped exam room and best of all there’s no waiting room, redundant forms, exposure to contagions, or commuting.”
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says this is the worst flu season in the United States in 10 years with several mayors declaring health emergencies. This serves as a stark reminder of the importance of and need for viable alternatives to exposing oneself or others to contagious illnesses.
Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has largely upheld the Affordable Care Act, about 32 million more Americans will soon come onto the insurance rolls, yet the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is predicting a lack of 90,000 doctors by 2020. Most of the shortage is in primary care physicians. This will only exacerbate the hassles patients presently experience with a trip to the doctor’s office.
By signing up, not just physicians, but also physician assistants and nurse practitioners - whose scope of practice is nearly identical - iGenezen can solve problems not just for the end user, but small businesses as well (i.e. - absenteeism, presenteeism). Health care providers subscribe to iGenezen’s scheduling platform and start offering house calls to their patients. Armed with mobile medical and communication equipment as well as a steady source of consumable medical supplies, vaccines, and some first dose medications, providers can provide a whole host of services, from illness exams and injury exams to comprehensive physical exams and travel consultations.
“Injuries and illnesses are never planned, so they should not derail productivity,” said Cole “and since patients are seen in the comfort of their own surroundings they are more at ease during exams, not contracting illnesses from or spreading illnesses to other patients, and they generally get quicker response times than a non-emergent ER visit.”
iGenezen was launched in December 2012 by New York-based entrepreneurs Landon Cole and Southern California-based A.J. Miller. Frustrated by long waits in waiting rooms and wasted time commuting to and from their physician’s office they felt compelled to change the way this generation thinks about health care. By leveraging advances in technology, a commitment to intelligent patient insight, and an altruistic vision, they endeavor to bring this service nationwide.
