Cornell Study Verifies the Critical Need for Test Tracking and Patient Follow Up
Medina, OH—June 29, 2009—A major medical study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine (June 22, 2009) finds that one in fourteen patients fail to receive abnormal test results from their physicians with sometimes catastrophic results. This information is contained in a study by Dr. Lawrence P. Casalino of Weill Cornell Medical College entitled, “Physicians Frequently Fail To Inform Patients About Abnormal Test Results.”
SecuReach Systems, Inc. has been providing a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution for test tracking and communications for physicians for more than three years. Currently, over 600,000 patients across the country enjoy the peace of mind that comes from timely and secure access to all their lab results and other tests just by picking up the telephone.
Dr. Steven Pap, retired OBGYN, and founder of SecuReach Systems, has developed a system that is easy to use and inexpensive. For less than $4.00 per day a physician can document that all patients are compliant and receive their results in a timely fashion, preventing needless patient injury. At the same time they can save up to 40% on their phone traffic and countless hours of wasteful phone tag.
“SecuReach is the only system available that combines an automated test tracking system with an innovative communication system that allows physicians to contact patients quickly and efficiently,” says Dr. Pap. “You must address both functions in order to increase patient safety, mitigate potential medical liability risks, and to help curb healthcare costs in the United States.”
The Medical Malpractice Insurance industry agrees that a robust tracking and communication system can increase patient safety and reduce claims. Many companies are incentivizing their physician insureds to use SecuReach.
