Additional business details
ListenMD is an intelligent patient centered universal health care communication platform designed for doctors, their office staff and for hospital caregivers to improve their workflow and productivity enabling enhanced patient care at a reduced cost.
This HIPAA compliant mobile application is patient centered with communication occurring in separate channels unique to each patient that can become part of the electronic medical record. Doctors can choose to distill and keep minimal essential information at their fingertips in a sharable card for each patient as well as save separate notes and reminders about each patient. It emphasizes rapid communication and coordination of care among multiple caregivers without being weighed down by excessive and confusing data present in the electronic records.
Being easy to load and use, it is meant for universal use among a patient’s doctors, nurses, therapists, nutritionists and other caregivers. The patient can load the app to control access and see their doctors’ appointments, as well as to send emergency alerts to their doctors and non- emergency alerts to their doctors’ offices. Caregivers can involve patients as they consult other caregivers to share that patient’s health information.
The HIPAA compliant messaging app intelligently sorts messages by patient and sender to deliver the message with the sender’s priority at the recipient’s convenience, enabling doctors to efficiently communicate internally with their office staff and externally with multiple other providers.
The ability to visualize the caregiver list for every patient and then send messages to the correct covering doctor and nurse can improve hospital workflow. Access to patient cards, notes and tasks while covering other doctors can reduce errors. Sharing information between primary doctors and hospitalists can improve care and reduce cost. Timely notification of hospital admission or discharge by integration with the health information exchange can allow the primary doctor to prevent unnecessary admissions and re-admissions.
Allowing the doctor and the doctor’s office to receive and prioritize patient alerts, expedite appointments, send appointment or delay notifications and then ensure that the patient follows up for the office visit will improve office workflow and productivity.
The ease of use and the minimalist approach to data entry will allow widespread adoptions to become a universal health care communication platform among doctors weighed down by their own electronic medical record systems. The ability to communicate with all caregivers for a given patient at a given time will improve coordination and thereby reduce cost of care.
