NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 22, 2020
PM Pediatrics (“PMP”), the nation’s largest provider of specialized pediatric urgent care, is collaborating with avoMD, an app-driven platform for next-gen clinical guidelines and pathways, to improve the adoption of PM Pediatrics’ evidence-based clinical care pathways.
The two parties are digitalizing PM Pediatrics’ clinical guidelines into highly usable and interactive formats, which will be made available on every provider’s phone via the avoMD mobile app. The collaboration will initially focus on twenty clinical targets, including multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), urinary tract infection (UTI), acute otitis media (AOM), croup, and asthma.
“avoMD’s platform is an excellent solution to help us translate our team’s clinical expertise into best practice. By transforming our existing guidelines into a simple, interactive app, avoMD helps our clinicians easily access evidence-based medicine and ultimately enhances patient care,” said Dr. Mordechai Raskas, Chief Medical Information Officer and Director of Telemedicine for PM Pediatrics. “Additionally, avoMD’s ability to rapidly update and distribute our guidelines allows us to make changes on the fly and adapt to the rapidly changing clinical environment that COVID-19 has created.”
“PM Pediatrics is a leader in evidence-based pediatric medical care and at the forefront of developing urgent care guidelines,” said Dr. Yair Saperstein, CEO of avoMD. “This collaboration allows PMP providers to instantly access highly contextualized and usable clinical pathways at the point of care, when such content is needed most immediately. We are excited to join forces with PM Pediatrics in developing and delivering this content.”
