Powerful DoctorsElite Portal Launches to Connect Physicians and Patients
DoctorsElite Helps Patients Find Specialists, Facilitates Physician Collaboration
PR Newswire — May 22, 2012
GULFPORT, Miss., May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — A group of physicians teamed up with technology experts & medical advisors to launch DoctorsElite. The new portal is a powerful ally for patients and their loved ones, providing free access to a database containing information on more than half a million doctors and centers that offer advanced treatment for specific diagnoses. Patients can search for medical professionals by diagnosis, treatment, or specialty and can access subspecialty details that aren’t available at other websites and can also add their family members to maintain health records for free.
When Hurricane Katrina tore through the Gulf Coast in the summer of 2005, it left a trail of devastation. Cyril V. K. Bethala, MD, an interventional cardiologist, experienced the havoc first hand. Hospitals were out of commission, including the one in which Dr. Bethala was working when Katrina struck and where he was stranded for days. In the aftermath, many doctors left town, and patients fled to refuges nationwide. It was impossible in those days for millions to access their medical records or for patients and doctors to connect. Solving that problem was the inspiration behind DoctorsElite, a Gulfport-based software company that offers a powerful patient information portal and physicians’ network.
“DoctorsElite provides unmatched resources for physicians seeking specialty care for their patients and serves as a communication hub for doctors, who can consult with fellow physicians through a secure referral platform. Doctors can also share their thoughts with their entire network via the company’s Scribbl (TM)tool, or communicate privately with a one-to-one messaging center. Doctors can login free and complete their physician profiles, providing information about special areas of expertise that may not be listed elsewhere,” says Siva Subramanian, CTO of DoctorsElite.
Dr. Bethala, who has entrepreneurial experience as the founder of several other successful companies, co-founded DoctorsElite with his physician brothers, Vivian K. Bethala, a practicing gastroenterologist who serves as the company’s Medical Director; and Vasanth K. Bethala, an interventional cardiologist who serves as Chief Medical Information Officer. Dr. Bharat H. Sangani, a practicing cardiologist and advisor for DoctorsElite and Dr. Yashashree Bethala, an internist, has been a core advisor for DoctorsElite since its inception.
“Accessing valuable information through Mobile/Mobile apps have surpassed the web usage in recent times and different industries have acknowledged and adapted to these changes by their mobile presence. Customers struggle finding good apps in the Health, Fitness and Medical categories that are backed by physicians and as an initiative we have launched DoctorsElite iPhone app for Patients. iPhone users can download it for free from App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/doctorselite/id524823676?mt=8),” says Muthu Arumugam, COO of DoctorsElite.
Muthu Arumugam and Siva Subramanian are part of the management team bringing more than 15 years of Technology and Management expertise to the board. They came from a solid background on Mobile ecosystem with their other ventures like http://mtiks.com (a mobile app analytics & anti-piracy firm).
Patients who join DoctorsElite can also use the highly secure portal to store their complete medical histories, which facilitates greater levels of care coordination and relieves patients of the burden of having to piece together their entire medical history from scratch for each doctor. Safeguarding sensitive patient data is a top priority at DoctorsElite, so patients can use the service with confidence since no one else – including participating doctors – can access their private information.
In the Information Age, data is at everyone’s fingertips, but until now, no other website has provided such a comprehensive, detailed database of physicians and treatment centers searchable by diagnosis, treatment, or specialty. The DoctorsElite team is committed to providing patients with access to the specialists and treatment options they need. Find out more at https://doctorselite.com.
