DoctorsElite Lets You Access Medical Records from Mobile Devices
Often the best ideas are bred of necessity. This is definitely the case with Gulfport, MS. based software company DoctorsElite, which among other things, allows patients to securely store medical records and access them from anywhere, in case of a disaster or emergency. The company recently announced their launch which includes an iOS app as well as other web features useful for patients, doctors and specialists.
Looking around the Guld Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Cyril V. Bethala, DoctorsElite co-founder who rode the storm out at the Hospital he was working in at the time, saw doctors leaving town and patients fleeing to refuges nationwide. "It was impossible in that devastation for millions of patients to access records, much less connect with doctors" said Dr. Bethala in a company statement. It was solving this problem that was the catalyst and inspiration behind DoctorsElite, co-founded by Dr. Bethala and his two physician brothers, Vivian Bethala and Vasanth Bethala, both practicing physicians who are now the Medical Director and Chief Medical Information Officer, respectively.
"DoctorsElite provides unmatched resources for physicians seeking specialty care for their patients and serves as a communication hub for doctors, who can consult with fellow physicians through a secure referral platform. Doctors can also share their thoughts with their entire network via the company's Scribbl™ tool, or communicate privately with a one-to-one messaging center. Doctors can login free and complete their physician profiles, providing information about special areas of expertise that may not be listed elsewhere," says Siva Subramanian, CTO of DoctorsElite.
"Accessing valuable information through Mobile/Mobile apps have surpassed the web usage in recent times and different industries have acknowledged and adapted to these changes by their mobile presence. Customers struggle finding good apps in the Health, Fitness and Medical categories that are backed by physicians and as an initiative we have launched DoctorsElite iPhone app for Patients. iPhone users can download it for free from App Store" says Muthu Arumugam, COO of DoctorsElite.
