Telemed Partners joins the imminent telemedicine boom, as Prof. Victor S. Dorodny, MD, is realigning his 17-year-old health care policy, economics and information technology consulting company, Health Pro Worldwide, Inc., and refocusing on the hot fields of health information technology (HIT) and telemedicine.

The new company, TeleMed Partners, benefiting from almost two decades of expertise, fosters strategic partnerships between HIT manufacturers, medical service providers, consumers, and payors.

Its first consulting client is US Tele-Medicine of Beverly Hills. “The current US health care system needs to expand the use of health information technologies and telemedicine. The system emerging in the wake of new health care legislation will crash without it,” says Dr. Victor Dorodny. “Adding thirty million health care consumers, while mandating extended coverage, combined with increased demand for health care from the aging baby boomers is straining the system at the seams. Telemedicine seems to be our best viable alternative to provide health care for the ever growing needs of the consumer, especially the chronically ill and aging. I have no doubt that health care delivery in the US will change dramatically in the next ten years through the adoption of telemedicine. We are in the convergent space defined by medicine, information, and technology, and plan to work hard on integrating them for the benefit of the health care consumers.”

Prof. Dorodny, MD, ND, PhD, MPH ( President & CEO of TeleMed Partners, was one of the creators of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). He has served on the Advisory Board of the Assoc. of Medical Director of Information Systems and is the Past President of the National Assoc. of Managed Care Physicians (Western Division).
