What an incredible Spring! I can’t believe how much cool stuff has happened since the beginning of the year. We launched three new products through a new joint venture called “Convergent Medical” which is essentially the HOPE Network’s development arm and physician-centric skunk works. In other words, we make stuff doctors will love! Here is what we have so far:
MPADS.com – a check in kiosk for your physician’s office that tiers to a 3rd wave patient portal designed from the ground up for the ePatient who is active, engaged, and wants to communicate between visits. We partnered with one of the first approved ACOs to create a system that will keep patients healthier not just at the office visit, but between visits too!
Doctors First Association – an online marketplace for everything you need to run your medical or dental office at a considerable discount. Visit Dr1st.org to shop tens of thousands of products and specials every day.
MedStartr - Crowdfunding for healthcare. Kickstarter doesn’t want medical innovations, so we had to roll our own. Launching on the 4th of July to show our belief that this healthcare revolution is for the people and by the people. Guess what is one of the first projects there? Yup, you guessed it, FairCareMD! Sign up to be informed here.
FairCareMD has a 3rd Version rolling out for every doctor in the USA! You also can now do appointment requests! We also have moved to the freemium model which means it is free for most and premium services are available. We think it is awesome and hope you do too! More on this later.
Our Healthcare Innovation Meetup group has topped 1,880 members and run an event every month. Here is one of the best so far, where we showed off MedStartr and had a bunch of the folks from our first wave of projects strutting their stuff!
Here is the full event video. Feel free to skip to 1:32 where I go on
Thank you for being members of the FairCareMD community and to my partners at Convergent, FairCare, Health 2.0 NYC, and MedStartr. You guys and girls ROCK! If Summer is anything like this Spring has been, it will be Hot Hot Hot!
