Technology has transformed retail, transportation, and communication, so why is the delivery of medical care essentially unchanged? •I use all sorts of technology in my practice to diagnose, monitor, treat, and communicate with patients in ways that increase access and efficiency. One example is for patients with heart palpitations. In the past, you would be sent to a cardiologist (and pay a new co-pay) and they would order you to wear a Holter Monitor for a week or a Patch for a few days (both are expensive tests) and then it would take another week or so to get things analyzed. No one would contact you about results (bc they would want another visit co-pay to go over results). •Instead of that run-around I lend people out this small device, which records a medical grade EKG directly into their smartphone. The EKG can then get texted to me, and right there (whether that person is at work, at home, at a Laker game,etc.), I can read it and text them back as to whether they need to start new meds, or whether their palpitations have nothing to actually do with their heart. •The technology is here. But the current system of insurance, referrals, copays, and prior authorization hinders doctor's ability to take advantage. I am here to change that. Diagnosing someone's palpitations as being atrial fibrillation may prevent a stroke. And letting them know their palpitations are probably just anxiety and not actually their heart may be just as vital for their quality of life. It is time for medicine to get with the times.
