MEDINEXO is a Global Telehealth Marketplace designed to help our members find Healthcare Services specific to their needs. The MEDINEXO Marketplace allows our members to locate healthcare services and specialists 24/7, in their patients’ language, when and where they need them.
MEDINEXO is the only global online telehealth marketplace to access clinical skills delivered via telemedicine. The MEDINEXO Global Telehealth Marketplace connects users and providers of clinical services through a proprietary online matching and scheduling interface. MEDINEXO is not a provider of telehealth technology nor clinical services. Instead, it advances the rapid growth of telehealth by ensuring the availability of clinical services as needed across geographies, time zones, languages and medical specialties. The result is increased access to care by underserved populations in both the developed and developing world.
Whether you desire to augment your practice with additional specialists, reach additional patients with existing staff or both, the MEDINEXO Marketplace can be a powerful new addition to your team.
Telehealth continues to expand in use and popularity. In today’s world, most consumers and providers believe that telehealth is a video consultation between and patient and a physician provider. Indeed, well-known companies like American Well and MD Live are focused on building their business through this direct to consumer approach.
MEDINEXO has a different view. We believe that telehealth is more effective when conducted between healthcare providers. Our telehealth platform is specifically designed to connect providers who have patients needing consultations with consultants who are willing to provide them. In addition, our compliant platform facilitates asynchronous (“store and forward”) consultations. CMS recognizes both video and asynchronous consultations and reimburses both the originating site and the consultant.
Store and forward consultations allow the providers to share important patient information between the patient care provider and the telehealth consultants. These are files (H&P, medication, x-rays, etc.) that are made available to the consultant. We believe this methodology provides both the originating site physician and the patient the most productive consultation.
MEDINEXO’s platform requires no up-front investment or cost to either your facility or the telehealth consultant. It is 100% cloud based and completely secure. Any PC with Internet access can use our platform. Video consultations do require a camera.
As the telehealth industry expands and healthcare professionals transition into their new roles, we see the transformation of services to be completely on cloud-based platforms. As with all industries the online world is how consumers want these services delivered. Getting everyone on board in a timely matter is another story. As that is one of the major challenges the industry faces and that MEDINEXO aims to execute.
