Company also expands platform to meet the diverse needs of the South African medical community
JOHANNESBURG, Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Medici (www.medici.md) announced today that it will support the first ever National Medical Awards (NMA) sponsored by the Alliance of South African Independent Practitioners Associations (ASAIPA). The NMA award nominations are now open and provide recognition in five categories including: "Recognition for embracing digital solutions to achieve better patient and business outcomes."
"ASAIPA is honoured that Medici chose to support the first NMA and we look forward to sharing the stage with them whilst celebrating our local practitioners," said Dr. Unben Pillay, ASAIPA CEO. "Without a doubt these Awards are soon to be the industry's most sought-after accolade."
Medici is the smart phone doctor-patient communications platform of record in South Africa and allows for patients and doctors to interact over smart phones for routine matters, saving time and money incurred during in-office visits. Many doctors are finding productivity improvements up to six times by using the text, video and remote diagnostic features of Medici. The company was launched in South Africa by Dr. Clinton Phillips, a former rugby star for the Pirates, and is now headquartered in Austin, TX.
"Medici fully supports independent practitioners and many in our Medici doctor community have chosen our application for the very independence it creates— as well as the freedom to diagnose and prescribe anytime and anywhere," said Neil Kinsley, Medici Managing Director. "We are proud to support ASAIPA members and the recognition these awards provide to those who are changing the way that people access healthcare."
Medici recently announced new features of the application including:
- Group Chat—Allowing patients to consult with primary and specialist doctors simultaneously.
- Desktop platform—Allowing practitioners to access files from their servers or patient electronic medical records.
- Dashboard feature —Giving doctor and patient a simplified navigation from the home screen.
"What we have seen in the Health Market Inquiry Provisional Report released, where it indicates that solo practices should be phased out and that practitioners should be employed, has just served to confirm that now more than ever, that independent primary healthcare practitioners in private practice needs to be recognised and promoted," ASAIPA CEO, Henru Krüger, noted when explaining the motivation behind the awards project.
