JAY PARKINSON + MD + MPH - Say hello to hello health launching May 1st

JAY PARKINSON + MD + MPH - Say hello to hello health launching May 1st: "Our focus is on you — a human being; a person paying hard-earned money for a service that should rival the value of your money; a person concerned with their health who understands that western medicine cannot provide absolutely everything; a person who wants a knowledgeable, personable doctor who will treat you with respect and dignity; a person who wants to simply feel their best and wants to embrace the most reliable health information on the internet and wants a doctor to interpret it and personalize it specifically for you. We are your doctors. We are your resource for health information. We are your healthcare financial consultants.

Depending upon the nature of your symptoms, you will be able to make an appointment for a house/office call, a video chat, an IM, or simply send us an email. A hello health doctor will then show up at your apartment/office or meet you virtually on the web. We’ll also have an exam room in our office for problems that require a doctor’s office visit. The appointment process will nearly exactly mimic making an appointment at the Apple Store Genius Bar.

Our market is the 47 million people in America without health insurance; the other millions of Americans who are underinsured; and the 40 million Americans over the next four years who will have high deductible health insurance plans. In essence, there will be nearly 100 million people in America in 4 years who have to pay cash for their healthcare. Our other market — considering half of my current patients have insurance and simply pay for accessibility and convenience — are people who value relationships and communication with their own personal doctor.

hello health is concierge service for all.

We will add significant value to the cost of the subscription fee by taking advantage of the weaknesses and insufficiencies of the traditional healthcare system that has left behind the healthcare consumer."

What a great idea ! It's a very good example of how technology can be used cleverly to cut out all the "middle-men" between the doctor and patient, so doctors can focus on doing what they do best - providing high quality medical care - one-on-one !
