Orlando Plastic Surgeon Adopts Innovative Tool for Patient Education
ORLANDO, FL, Dec 13, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Dr. James A Matas, a practitioner of Orlando plastic surgery, has
integrated state-of-the-art TouchMD technology into his practice.
TouchMD is an innovative device designed to increase patient
education, which seeks to make the most of a patient's time while at
a doctor's office. The software's mission aligns with Dr. Matas'
stated goal of compassionately prioritizing the patient and offering
up-to-date, factual information.
TouchMD, a patient education software, is a system that aims to
reduce wasteful patient downtime at the doctor's office. The product
offers the opportunity to enhance doctor-patient relationships by
allowing patients to utilize their wait time in the exam room in a
productive manner. As opposed to the standard magazine or television,
TouchMD provides an interactive alternative patients can use to
research their personalized interests right in the doctor's office.
The software delivers information about potential outcomes for
procedures ranging from tummy tuck to face lift, all with an
interface that is easy to navigate.
Dr. Matas, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Orlando, believes
that if patients are given a tool to educate themselves in the exam
room before he arrives, communication during consultations is greatly
improved. He also views TouchMD as a tool he can use during the
consultation itself to offer a visual overview of the anatomical area
under discussion, along with examples of the pre and post-operative
appearances of each particular type of surgery. Patients can continue
to access the information Touch MD provides from their home computer
through a web portal. This remote access allows patients to revisit
the information they discussed with the doctor after they have left
the office. Ultimately, the Advanced Centre For Plastic Surgery, Dr.
Matas' Orlando practice, welcomes TouchMD as a secure method for
patients to review and share information about their experiences
regardless of whether they are undergoing liposuction or a breast
