Privately owned telehealth, telemedicine and medical kiosk manufacturer Computerized Screening (CSI) has formed a partnership with Doctor On Demand to offer telemedicine and telehealth connectivity on its Virtual eClinic health systems across the USA.
 
Charles Bluth, president and CEO of Nevada-based CSI, said the company had worked for the past eight years to secure a physician call service that understood the marketplace and offered the three critical key elements –a true doctor-on-demand protocol, virtual video conferencing and high quality physicians who understood the demands of telemedicine and telehealth consultations.
 
"After eight years, we have finally found a company that truly understands the needs of the consumers and offers the three critical key elements that were needed,” he said. “In addition, Doctor On Demand does not charge a monthly fee to corporations for their employees but only charges a $40 consultation fee."
 
Combining the services of CSI and California-based Doctor On Demand will provide the consumer a complete health care programme, which they said previously had not been available.
 
"At Doctor On Demand, our mission is to fix the access problem to high quality, affordable health care,” said Doctor On Demand co-founder and CEO Adam Jackson. “We solve this problem by connecting patients via video visits with our own board certified doctors. Partnering with the market leader and pioneer in medical kiosks allows us to serve even more patients and do so with better and more accurate medical diagnostic information in real time."
 
CSI has been at the forefront of telemedicine and telehealth since 2000 when it was awarded its patents and since then has been instrumental in developing health equipment, components, services and programmes as new technology emerges. The company's technology includes the availability to establish a personal health record with storage and retrieval of health information and progress over time for personal analysis and discussion with a physician.
 
Doctor On Demand provides video visits with board certified physicians, psychologists and lactation consultants via smartphones, tablets and desktop computers. Patients download an app or visit the web site, provide a list of their symptoms, and are instantly connected for a video visit.
