I only wish there was something I could add to this incredible presentation. The only thing I can think of is by typing it all up and posting it on alongside the slide deck so the world of patients and carers can get better access to this invaluable information.

For more information on the structured interview software mentioned in the videos (and which have been used by 3G Doctor since 2006) check out MedicalHistory.com if you’d like to get more information or a trial contact Dr Richard Sills (representative for the UK and Europe) at rosills@medicalhistory.com

  1. Great stuff! I reposted this info on our blog, http://blog.1-800.md. Our company is actually implementing these types of services across the US for employers, TPA’s and insurance companies in order to provide better access to care at lower cost.

    • Jonathan,

      Thanks for your comment. It was very interesting to learn more about what you’re doing there at 1-800.md

      FYI The group that provides Mayo the online questionnaire tools are based in the South Eastern US. You may want to reach out to them (at http://MedicalHistory.com) to learn more on how the Mayo has increased the number of online consultations that their physicians can do.

    This is one of the best presentation I have ever watched. I greatly appreciate having this online to experience.

    What impressed me so much is that there is no need for video to treat all these conditions.

    • Hi John,

      Brilliant point.

      Whilst lot’s of the work that Doctors waste their time with today can be done with an online consultation process, don’t dismiss the need to build acceptance of this amongst patients and Doctors.

      The key point about Video is it is the next step. At 3G Doctor (where we provide a completely paperless service offering Mobile Video access to the informed advice of registered Doctors) we have as our starting point an informed Patient and Doctor. Once you have that the benefits of Video are immediate and obvious.

    Hi John,

    Glad to read your observations, hopefully some UK docs will start to feel the same way soon!

    I represent IMH, the group that provides Mayo with the online questionnaire tools, in the UK and work closely with David.. They are located in the southeastern US. You may want to reach out to them to learn more on how Mayo has increased the number of online consultations that their physicians can do” I know that Matthew Ferrante would be more than happy to chat to you.

    Good luck with Wellivery.
