We use twitter, facebook, skype, email and text messages to care for our patients. Our patients have the option to sign hipaa waivers to allow for non-secure communications. Because we are an insurance free practice, we are not limited by what insurance will pay for. We are a 100% direct primary care (concierge) practice so we are quick to adopt technology that will let us care for patients. I'm sure minutes after i get my google glass i'll be contacting patients :)
We had to build our own software to help us manage our insurance free practice and to integrate modern technology. we're launching the new site today and we'll be releasing a limited number of beta invites over the next few weeks.
I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
for public questions i'll tweet general responses. typically for patients the tweets are private DMs. Socially, we tweet a lot to help meet patients and share our personality.
