Szekesfehervar, Fejer, Hungary, 2008/07/15 - TalktoaDoc, LLC, a new virtual clinic in the United States, has selected Skymol Communicator including live voice, video and text chat communications capabilities to offer live medical counseling to its patients.
Skymol Corporation, a leading provider of on-demand (hosted) solutions for managing online customer interactions using real-time voice and video, and text chat communications, today announced that TalktoaDoc, LLC, a new virtual clinic in the United States, has selected Skymol Communicator including live voice, video and text chat communications capabilities to offer live medical counseling to its patients.
"Our virtual clinic provides people with a more convenient and interactive way to communicate with doctors from home to supplement regular doctor visits," said Brandon Wuerth, CEO and Founder of TalktoaDoc.org. TalktoaDoc.org provides patients with the opportunity to talk to a U.S. licensed physician LIVE directly from their home computer using text, voice, and/or video. The first minute of the conversation is free and the user is charged $2.98 for each additional minute thereafter.
"This service is unique as the communication is live and can be done using webcam. Other services are either message board style or cannot be done using a webcam," continued Wuerth. "Skymol Communicator live chat, live help and support solution is a more interactive communication tool than email, message board or the traditonal text chat. It’s an outstanding service that helps us to provide a unique approach to connecting patients and doctors in a personalized and interactive environment," added Wuerth.
TalktoaDoc.org will initially only be open to people from the state of Kentucky. As the website grows it will gradually open up to all 50 U.S. states. Patients can choose from the following departments to direct their questions: All Departments (for General Questions), Cardiology, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Psychiatry and Surgery. If there are no doctors currently online patients can have an email or text message sent to them the next time a doctor comes online. Patients can also view doctors projected online times which each doctor sets.
"We are pleased that TalktoaDoc.org has selected Skymol Communicator to provide live online medical counseling to their patients in the U.S. Our solution will make TalktoaDoc.org’s best-in-class medical service more accessible than ever before and position them well for increased customer loyalty and growth," said Thomas Morocz, CSO of Skymol.
TalktoaDoc.org is a single member limited liability company organized in Louisville, KY, USA. Brandon Wuerth, the company’s founder and CEO, came up with the idea to create TalktoaDoc.org while he was applying to medical school. During his interviews, medical schools would constantly bring up the fact that there was a lack of doctors in rural areas of the United States. This is the basis that TalktoaDoc.org was created on, giving better access to medical care to those who need it. TalktoaDoc.org also donates a portion of its net proceeds to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of its founder’s brother who died of the disease in 1994.
