Custom Med Patient Services Inc. announced today the formation of a new medical collaboration community that enables doctors to combine their collective wisdom online to “solve patient cases and save patient lives.”
According to a statement provided to mHealthWatch, more than 40,000 people die from fatal diagnostic errors in U.S. intensive care units each year. That’s based on the latest data from the US National Center on Policy Analysis.
Additionally, each year it is estimated that 20 percent of cases are misdiagnosed.
CMP’s medical collaboration community allows physicians from more than 90 specialties to collaborate. This is the first platform where doctors can use HIPAA-compliant telecommunication systems consisting of live video consultation and instant messaging at zero cost to doctors.
”Collaborating only with doctors in their group, or hospital, or even their own state is not enough,” said Christopher Obereder, CEO of CMPForYou.com. “Collaboration with other doctors anywhere is essential for speedy recovery of patients saving potentially billions of dollars.”
