Ringadoc offers instant audio and video consultations with doctors over any basic phone, smartphone, or computer. Jordan today will be demoing Ringadoc’s physician-calling system with his colleague Buckley. Those of you with long memories may remember this launching at Health 2.0 in 2010 when it was called Telethrive.
Although progress is being made in addressing deficiencies in how care is delivered, the U.S. health care system is still a “broken” system from the perspective of many patients and providers. Many patients still find it difficult to access a health provider. Providers find that reimbursement rules constrain the types of interactions for which they’ll be paid. In response to persistent problems with health care delivery a variety of new approaches to care delivery have emerged. We’ll take a look at a group of companies that have developed technologies to facilitate interactions between patients and providers.
Danny Sands moderates this panel on innovative technologies that allow for new avenues of patient-provider communication.
Jordan Michaels, Founds & CEO of Ringadoc, demos what it looks like for physicians when they get a phone call from a patient.

To be on Launch! it must be the first time a company has demoed at a conference, and the product must either be coming out soon or have been in very limited beta to this point. During 2010 we saw some larger, better funded companies on Launch! but everyone’s had to compete to get on and there are some teeny startups here that you’ve never heard of that might just blow you away. It’s 10 continuous 4 minute demos, and the winner gets a mainstage spot the following year, not to mention bragging rights. Who wins? You decide.
