Our Mission

Why Wait?

TeleMedCo™ is a new company whose mission is to bring cutting edge technology to the worldwide healthcare industry to offer an elevated level of care at significantly reduced costs.

Through our collaboration with IBM, the company will develop software that allows IBM’s Watson cognitive computing platform to engage in primary patient care in the Emergency Room and Urgent Care environments.

TeleMedCo’s software interface to IBM Watson is being designed and developed to pervasively assist doctors by handling lower level patients from diagnosis to prescription or treatment recommendations and by processing an approved e-script and coding and billing the entire visit, while also triggering immediate human intervention based on the information, analysis and “rules” built into the software.

As the population increases and ages, more and more demands are being placed on the healthcare ecosystem and the medical schools cannot turn out trained physicians fast enough to keep up with the demand.

Technology is the most promising answer.

Our Platform

The Hippocratic Code

We are developing  programming addressing the improvement of emergency medicine and urgent care areas of healthcare. TeleMedCo, powered by Watson, will follow all required medical protocols in every case that it handles.

Nearly all ER visits commence with a series of questions of the patient and with data secured from various diagnostic devices designed to measure blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, and other inputs. These devices are connectable through USB ports or via Bluetooth to telemedicine computers and are capable of giving digital readings to Watson in real time. The patient record will also be available with the treatment history including all drugs that the patient may be taking and the insurance carrier. In short, Watson will have all of the data normally supplied to the medical personnel of the hospital.

TeleMedCo’s software interface to IBM Watson will also update patient records, code and process insurance claims, and monitor patients for aftercare. This will represent a paradigm shift in the approach to healthcare, making both hospitals and practices more profitable while saving money for patients and their Insurance carriers.

In addition, the solution will include real time communications, with HIPAA compliant instant messaging, voice and video consults with the patient’s care team, including automatic routing to reach a professional when the appropriate conditions are met.

Our Approach

Working With Doctors & For Doctors

TeleMedCo’s medical staff, under the direction of Dr. Tina Miranda, will secure the various protocols representing the bulk of emergency room admissions and refine them to insure that they conform with the latest approved protocols by the American College of Emergency Physicians.

Our technologists will develop the programming that will allow these protocols to be viewed by Watson and translated using Watson’s Q&A and natural language understanding into operative interactions with patients . This enables Watson to diagnose the problem and recommend outputs ranging from prescriptions to therapies or surgeries. Once approved by a physician, an eScript will be sent to a pharmacy or the patient will be admitted to the hospital or transported to the appropriate healthcare facility.

The Exchange of Everything: Prepare for The New World of E2

Back in early nineties, straight out of college, I began working on Wall Street building trading floor technology and trying to keep up with the growth of the public markets and innovation in platforms. In my early twenties, I was charged with engineering and evolving sophisticated trader voice applications, connecting thousands of participants – buyers, sellers, brokers, banks and, of course, exchanges.

The ‘Exchange of Everything’ is Here and it Matters: Say Hello to the Idea Economy

The technology world is chock full of TLAs, three-letter acronyms. Generally, they’re conceived to make folks in cheap suits feel clever and confuse the rest of us. But ever so occasionally, they hint at something that might actually matter – both to businesses and to ordinary people.
