ABC TV news cameraman prepares to
capture story on the new MDconnectMe phone app
Imagine the hassle and possible nightmare of a surgeon faced with the task of having to contact close members of his patient's family to inform them that surgery performed on their loved one was successful.
Are the contact members in the hospital cafeteria, restroom or waiting area? Are they on vacation, overseas or sleeping?
And, in contrast, the patient's contact member may be worried and anxious not knowing if the operation is being performed as scheduled and whether it was successful.
All these problems are solved with the new MDconnectMe phone app. The surgeon invites the patient who then picks his contact list and then the surgeon clicks to send a text or phone message.
ABC aired the story today on its Eyewitness News at 4 program.
St.John's Riverside Hospital in Dobbs Ferry hosted the story.
