Miami, FL – August 09, 2017
Dr. Dan McDyer, a leading physician and OB/GYN based in Jacksonville, Florida, has recently partnered with Carie, www.carie.com, to begin the virtualization of his practice in order to provide his patients with the highest standard of convenient, affordable and accessible medical care by providing them with 24×7 access to health care whenever, and wherever they need it most.
Dr. McDyer, who serves as a section Chairman for ACOG and as a board member of Florida’s largest group of OB/GYN’s, selected “mobile-first” telehealth technology solutions provider Carie and is proving that physician-led healthcare solutions will always be the gold standard. Leading doctors continue to push the envelope in the bold start-up attracting top-tier medical talent coast-to-coast.
Health-technology start-up Carie, was designed and built specifically for physicians to address the nation’s growing demand for high quality, affordable healthcare. The unique platform and business model provides doctors with the technology and support they need to offer patients around-the-clock concierge-style care solutions, while simultaneously reducing costs.
This proactive collaboration is a response to the ever-increasing demand for convenient, quality access to 24/7/365 telemedicine services and increase rural care, all while preserving and improving the doctor-patient relationship. While increasing the practices cash and recurring revenue, it provides an important buffer for patients’ urgent care needs, both after-hours and during the business day, especially when the physician’s schedule may be overwhelmed and the patient is unable to get to the doctor’s office. With this collaborative relationship, the patients receive the on-demand care they need and the physician increases the number of patients treated and experiences an immediate increase in their recurring revenue stream.
“Carie has helped us provide the highest level of care for our patients by using the latest technologies for secure HIPAA compliant videoconferencing. They have made integration simple by helping my patients understand virtual care by removing decision-making barriers through education tools, how-to videos, and in-office marketing materials. It has also enhanced our revenue stream by keeping our patients’ virtual care needs in our control with our Carie partnership. We are extremely excited to be offering this cutting edge care option to our patients.” The on-demand service is fully integrated into Dr. McDyer’s practice and all consultations will follow practice guidelines to ensure the delivery of high-quality, evidence-based care.
