CloudMD Increases Doctor Onboarding Amid Growing Coronavirus (COVID-19) Concerns
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 9, 2020 – CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (CSE: DOC, OTCQB: DOCRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “Company” or “CloudMD”), a Company focused on revolutionizing the delivery of healthcare, announces it has increased doctor onboarding efforts for CloudMD, the Company’s direct-to-consumer telemedicine app, to handle the expected increased demand amidst the growing coronavirus spread.
Recently, officials from both the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization urged hospitals and clinics to expand their use of telehealth services. Virtual care options such as video visits can be an effective way to evaluate and treat illnesses from the comfort of one’s home, while minimizing exposure to other potentially contagious viruses.
“As demand for our services is expected to rise amidst the current Coronavirus outbreak, we are increasing our physician recruitment to manage the increased demand.” said Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of CloudMD. “It’s better to triage patients remotely, sending only complex cases to over-stretched hospitals, allowing for a more efficient use of healthcare resources and ultimately higher quality of care for the patient population.”
The Company’s CEO has recently been interviewed by multiple news sources as the public health concerns around the Coronavirus grows. See links below:
