Electronic Medical Solutions, Inc. ("EMS") developed and markets
a revolutionary, self-screening tool called MyElectronicMD, which allows
patients in a relatively short period of time to identify the likely causes
of their symptoms. The web-based program is revolutionary in that it approaches
self-screening from the patient's point of view! Of the approximately
2 million sites that provide "medical diagnosis," virtually all of them,
including hospital websites, require the patient to know what their diagnosis
is before they can research the implications of the disease/condition and
the alternative treatment options. Physicians know that this approach is
backwards. They always begin their evaluations of a patient by asking about
the patient's symptoms, not by asking the patient what disease they have.
The average person can tell you that they have a headache, pain in their
lower back, or difficulty breathing, etc. However, they do not know why
they have these symptoms, but they are interested in learning more about
what is happening to their body.
MyElectronicMD's user-friendly, patented navigation allows the patient
to point to the part of their body where their symptoms are occurring. MyElectronicMD
then presents the patient with symptom categories. Once a symptom category
is selected, groups of symptoms are displayed in boxes. These boxes of symptoms
typically occur in the conditions or diseases the patient may have. By selecting
the most appropriate box, a list of possible conditions that might produce
these symptoms is displayed. By reading the short summary of each condition,
the user can further discriminate the most likely condition he/she is experiencing.
MyElectronicMD provides links to physicians and specialists that treat these
conditions. Additionally, hyperlinks are offered to sponsors' educational
websites and to nationally known educational websites for each condition
to further assist the user in screening their condition and obtaining other
useful information including potential treatment options.
The navigation of MyElectronicMD was the concept of Oleg K. Chikovani,
M.D. and William R. Dobkin, M.D., neurological surgeons at Hoag Hospital
in Newport Beach, California (the "Founders"). The Founders recognized the
weakness in the medical industry's resource organization. The disease centric
organization of medical textbooks, web sites and other electronic tools
left a void for the millions of Americans seeking information regarding
their health issues. With the majority of computer literate baby boomers
approaching age 55 , the demand for patient-friendly interactive health
tools is growing.The Founders began creating MyElectronicMD
in August 1999, and received a patent on the navigational architecture in
2002. The Founders incurred more than 2,000 hours inputting information
into MyElectroniMD's database, which currently covers approximately 20,000
symptoms and 1,200 diseases/conditions. The accuracy and sophistication
of MyElectronicMD has been reviewed by EMS's advisory board, which consists
of 17 doctors with expertise in orthopedics, radiology, oncology, hematology,
ophthalmology, urology, otolaryngology, obstetrics, gynecology, vascular
surgery, cardiovascular and thoracic surgery. Additionally, the product
was reviewed and approved by the medical advisory committees of Tenet Healthcare
Corporation, Memorial Health Services and Hoag Hospital. MyElectronicMD
has also been favorably reviewed by the medical director of VHA's Laurel
