Denver Startup Week 2018 - Interview with Aaron Duke, VP of Product
Why are your patients leaving?
Spotlight on the Product Track of Denver Startup Week 2018 (DSW)
With registration now open for Denver Startup Week 2018, we know you’re as excited as we are to get more details about the tracks, sessions, sponsors, presenters and attendees that will make 2018’s event the best year yet. Like last year, we’re going to publish a series of posts diving deep into the tracks from those who know them the best: the industry pros who develop and curate each track’s content and production.
Insights: “When Your ‘Regular Doctor’ Could Be Anyone”
Maintaining loyalty and keeping patients engaged is an art form worth learning.
Did you know that 48% of consumers feel frustrated with their current healthcare providers? One in three would switch providers right now if they could find an affordable alternative.
Even more conservative industry estimates report that 7-10% of consumer attrition represents as much as $100 million in lost revenue opportunity.
What is really going on behind ER waiting doors?
Just what duty, if any, exists for doctors to keep tabs on their sickest patients?
It's about time this story was told and our co-founder, Dr. Blake McKinney had an insightful reply to this New York Times article written by Barron H. Lerner, M.D.
I feel trapped
It is no secret that doctors are overworked and running low on empathy for their patients. Our very own Dr. Alex Mohseni, CirrusMD doctor, poured his heart out in this article discussing his own challenges with the broken healthcare system.
But are your doctors providing good care virtually?
This morning I’m captive in my home waiting for the cable technician to arrive. I just moved to Denver to be closer to the CirrusMD offices, and while I attend to matters as important as shower curtains and updating my mailing address, I also need to figure out where I can take my daughter to see a pediatrician.
Guest Post - Jaron Ross, MD
Like people in general, doctors aren’t all the same. Some doctors have a great bedside manner and make patients feel like they are a family member. Some physicians perform complicated procedures that require a combination of clinical and technical acumen.
Why not give patients something they love?
Every now and then on Progress Notes we like to share the thoughts of important voices in the virtual care world. Today's post comes from Jaron Ross, MD, and emergency medicine physician in California.
Asynchronous Messaging in Health Care
I’m sick of the patient experience. As a practicing physician, and as a consumer of health services, it’s demoralizing for me.
CirrusMD in the Community
The next level of communication will be asynchronous messaging, or texting (securely, of course). But creating an entirely new way to access physicians and other services presents challenges to a staunchly established industry.
We did it!
As a company, CirrusMD knows the value of helping those around us.
The Lone Star State has telemedicine, but how do we get Texans to use it?
Today, I’m proud to announce CirrusMD has closed on $7 million in Series A funding.
Two years later
The new telemedicine regulations in Texas are very exciting! With his signature, Gov. Greg Abbott opened Texas to the future of health care—one where patients can connect with a doctor regardless of the time of day or day of the week.
We’ve seen remarkable growth with utilization, platform development (supporting new use cases and customers), but also grown the overall team through extremely wise and calculated hiring decisions.
