Physicians save time and money by logging into a secure network that is resulting in better health care for Canadians
HALIFAX, Feb. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - The Rounds, a professional networking site exclusive to Canadian physicians, is unveiling a makeover - offering faster, more efficient, features and tools to thousands of doctors.
As Canada's fastest growing professional social network, The Rounds is entirely HIPAA and PIPEDA compliant, meaning it's the most efficient way for doctors to collaborate across geographic boundaries in a completely secure manner. Clinical collaborations that were once only possible over the phone or via fax machine are now possible with a few keystrokes and clicks of a mouse.
"The Canadian healthcare system is lagging in adoption of technology overall," said Blair Ryan, CEO of The Rounds. "However, what we've seen is that individual doctors are moving away from personal pagers and analog fax machines and looking for innovative ways to use web and mobile-based technology in their practices. Our new product allows physicians to collaborate with the speed and ease of Twitter and Facebook while remaining compliant."
· Rounds (Groups) This features provides a community where physicians can collaborate and connect with other physicians throughout the country. Additionally, this feature allows alumni or groups of specialists to collaborate privately on unique patient cases.
· Create A Case is a new design built for collaboration that allows Canadian physicians to upload a patient's situation along with x-rays, images and any other relevant information.
· Send Secure Messages A redesigned feature that makes private messaging easier than ever with the entire system remaining HIPAA & PIPEDA compliant.
The Rounds now delivers all of these high-value features while maintaining a commitment to patient and physician privacy. Along with being HIPAA and PIPEDA compliant, The Rounds adheres to strict guidelines ensuring only Canadian physicians in good-standing are able to access the network's information and resources.This means each member is contacted and personally vetted before being given a login and password.
