New iOS App Connects Patients to Doctors and Specialists On-Demand
Santa Ana, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/26/2017 -- A simple yet revolutionary new telemedicine application, OmniaMD, launched today and is officially seeing patients and recruiting board-certified physicians in California. Created by Newport Beach Cardiologist and Harvard Medical School graduate Dr. Jorge Castellanos and former Cedars-Sinai RN Lauren Timpe, OmniaMD connects doctors and patients through iOS-based video calls on-demand for a flat rate of $59—no insurance needed.
OmniaMD uses a proprietary, encrypted connection in order for its board-certified physician team to securely connect with a patient. The patient pays a flat fee of $59 per video call, and insurance is not currently needed nor accepted. OmniaMD physicians assess the condition of the patient based on a visual and verbal consultation and provide medical advice or a prescription.
"Seeing a doctor is not as easy as it should be. We built OmniaMD to break down the barriers between doctor and patient, and allow them to connect face-to-face at any time. OmniaMD enriches the doctor-patient relationship, and gets the people the help they need right when they need it," said Dr. Jorge Castellanos, co-founder of OmniaMD.
OmniaMD also allows patients to select their physician based on specialty. OmniaMD physicians treat a variety of areas of medicine without being physically present, from cardiology to internal medicine.
OmniaMD has a core group of current providers, but is currently recruiting board-certified physicians in California for its founding class. OmniaMD physicians can work anytime and anywhere, and founding class members make $40 per call. There is no cost for physicians to join OmniaMD and medical malpractice coverage is included.
