SEE ME, HEAL ME - Telemedicine Services

(Miami, Florida) – On the heels of a recently released BBC report stating that the global demand for telehealth services is anticipated to grow from 11.6 billion in 2011 to 27.3 billion in 2016, Dr. Alejandro Badia, Founder of Badia Hand to Shoulder Center, announced today they will now accept appointments for Telemedicine e-visits via Zoom for Healthcare, a robust HIPAA compliant e-visit platform. The software allows the patient and doctor to communicate in real time using video conferencing where two way conversations take place and the affected area can be viewed.


Dr. Badiaan internationally respected hand and upper extremity surgeon who has been instrumental in positioning South Florida as a center for clinical excellence and a renowned international medical destination throughout his career, is planning on utilizing telehealth technology to expand access to quality care for both international and domestic patients alike.  “For international patients telemedicine e-visits will be used for initial consultations,” Badia explains and adds “this technology removes the barrier of having to be physically at our center in Doral, reducing travel costs and opening the doors to specialized care to those in distant locations”.  In addition to offering better outcomes through superior care, telemedicine e-visits can negate travel times for domestic patients for routine post-operative follow up visits”.


Industry experts anticipate strong demand for United States based telemedicine will come from neighboring Caribbean and Latin America countries. The Badia Hand to Shoulder Center team has multilingual speaking intake staff to work with the patients to complete necessary forms and coordinate transmission of their medical records. The average patient will spend fifteen minutes of private interview time with the doctor at which time an initial diagnosis and course of recommend treatment will be discussed.


Telemedicine is here to stay and thought leaders project that its use will continue to expand and put a new spin on the expression” the doctor will see you now”!
