What I love about Chuck Thornbury, MD is that he really understands primary care physician practice workflow. Because of that, he was able to design his mobile-to-mobile online delivery model, called meVisit, to really make it easy for patients to connect with their own doctors electronically – using what ever method they prefer (desktop, tablet, mobile). The doctors can respond by using their mobile phones – they are always on and always there. This means docs can conduct after hours care where ever they happen to be (hopefully not in a movie theater). So, no more staying late at the office or being tied to the desktop answering 1 am emails.
I had a chance to interview Chuck on camera at HiMSS14 in Orlando. Watch as he describes his approach:
