Direct Health (now called Direct Health) Chief Innovation Officer, Dr. Sandeep Pulim (@spulim), has been invited to speak this week —  Thursday, May 17th — at Cinderblocks5 Healthcare Conference. The three-day conference is hosted by Regena Holliday (@ReginaHolliday) – Maryland-based speaker, author and activist focused on patient advocacy. The lineup of speakers for the event covers a range of healthcare topics from notable healthcare professionals, experts and advocates. Past Cinderblock events have been highly rated and provide an opportunity to network and learn.

Dr. Pulim will be speaking from 12:30pm to 1:00pm on Day One about Direct Health and how the mobile telehealth platform allows doctors and patients to securely communicate with one another more effectively. During his talk he will share several examples of healthcare providers – including pediatrics, urgent care and veterinary –  who are using Direct Health as an effective asynchronous communication tool to administer care from their smartphones.

Direct Health (@medici_app) is a mobile communication solution that allows doctors to securely provide advice, e-prescribe, e-refer and more. Doctors are increasingly adopting Direct Health to unchain themselves from their offices while being able to receive payment for after-hours follow-up care that was previously provided for free, all while improving patient satisfaction and engagement.

In the US, 75% of adults own smartphones with text now a ubiquitous and rapid form of communication. Healthcare should be just as easy. Direct Health allows patients to connect with their personal doctors and alleviates the need for long waits for an appointment, cumbersome office visits for low-acuity care.

Prior to joining Direct Health in early 2017. Dr. Pulim worked to enable cognitive technology at the point of care for HCPs and patients to positively impact clinical learning and quality measures for health care organizations and payers. Pulim served as Senior Medical Editor at MDLinx, an award-winning, practical medical information tool that provides up to date medical research. Then was co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of Health Recovery Solutions, which helped empower patients to better manage their health using evidence-based interventions.
