“America is going through extraordinary changes and advances in health care,” said Schuman. “I’m excited to be part of a company that is utilizing technology in a way it has never been used before to help people have better access to health care and better encounters with medical practitioners.”
A pilot program, launching in early 2014 will have more than 800 participating physicians providing care to approximately 1,500 patients throughout Southern California. EXUSMED's programs, available to consumers in the summer of 2014 will provide improved outpatient continuity-of-care with the patient's own health care provider through on-demand, real-time mobile health care technology encounters.
