The innovative PhoneDOCTORx™ (PDRx) system uses proven patent methodology to treat non-urgent, urgent, and emergent medical cases that arise at Extended Care Facilities (ECFs). In compliance with the Board of Registration in Medicine, PDRx operates as the covering physician during after-hours and weekends.
PDRx is built on the foundation of a new method for delivering medical examination, diagnosis, and treatment services to a patient over a network using a call center and audio-visual technologies. The system can support any plurality of healthcare practitioners' terminals and patient terminals as a way to bring patients face-to-face with physicians to provide medical consultation—even during off-hours. PDRx delivers its revolutionary healthcare service through a license agreement with American Doctors Online™ (ADOL). ADOL currently holds four ground-breaking patents on the process of delivering telemedicine and has another four that are pending.
Following the proven step-by-step process offers nurses and patients immediate consultation and access with Board Certified physicians through real-time audio and visual communications. Access to Emergency Medical Records (EMRs) and the visualization of the patient yields more informed decisions and the immediate physician interaction reduces avoidable transfers to the Emergency Department (ED).
