Steve Wozniak Promotes iClickCare as Example of mHealth, Telemedicine

Posted by Lawrence Kerr on Sat, May 05, 2012 @ 03:54 PM

To quote Brandon Glenn in MedCityNews:

“And at least credit Woz with giving a special shout-out to one lucky telemedicine company: ClickCare, a New York company that’s developed an app that lets physicians collaborate on care with pictures and video on iPhones and iPads.”

Steve Wozniak is an engineer who designs circuits to work in the most efficient and inexpensive manner. As Laura Montini quotes in Health 2.0, he said: “I got better and better at making things smaller and smaller and smaller...The number of chips it took for a design had to be the minimum. And it turns out that led me to some good life philosophies about trying to make everything the fewest steps possible.” Mr. Wozniak is beyond legendary and his contribution to mankind is so large, it even goes beyond those of others such as the Wright Brothers and Thomas Edison. 

We did not get a opportunity to ask him, but we wonder if, after hearing about iClickCare, those values are why he singled out ClickCare and iClickCare as the lone identified company in the ATA 2012 Keynote Speech. We freely admit to following the same principles as we design, improve and sell iClickCare and future products. We are committed to having a ubiquitously available, cost effective, simple, secure and spectacular service to allow providers to collaborate over the internet.

We did, however, get to see how personable, generous, and caring he is. We are honored. We are proud. We are humbled. We are also challenged to further grow into his standards and will continue to keep his principles of engineering in mind as we keep the timeless principles of medicine — access for the patient, collaboration for the provider, and education for the student — at the fore.

We recommend his book iWoz, available (as is our book iPhone Medical Photography) at these retailers:

Apple ITunes Store:

5 questions about ClickCare: an interview by Eric Michaels

Posted by Lawrence Kerr on Thu, Sep 01, 2011 @ 08:35 PM

He called, we answered, and he asked us some interesting questions. We did our best to bring some insight about ClickCare and iClickCare. Here is a link: Expert Interviews, For any of you who would like some more background about why we do what we do, we answered these questions:

ClickCare on the air

  • After long careers as physicians, why did you start?
  • Give me an example of how a patient would benefit?
  • If the internet is involved, how can privacy be assured?
  • Everything’s expensive in medicine, how does ClickCare save?
  • How does iClickCare fit into other healthcare IT initiatives?
  • How soon will I see this in my doctor’s office?

These questions are very commonly asked of us. Is there anything that we left out? Do you agree? We welcome your comments.

mHealth–Is there a future?

Posted by Marc Norman on Mon, Nov 15, 2010 @ 12:41 PM

A lot of people seem to think so.  The most recent report, abstracted by research2guidance entitled “Global Mobile Health Market Report 2010-2015” was reported at mHealth Summit last week.  We also heard the same theme when we presented at mHealth in San Diego, last month.

The statistics are amazing, and all point to the same message:  we are all mobile creatures and would rather not be on a leash.  Research2guidance estimates that 500 million people will be using smartphones in various ways for health care.  These range from continuing medical education to unique monitoring devices.

We at ClickCare would caution, however, that the right tool, at the right time, at the right price should be used.  We could not be more enthusiastic about iClickCare and the iPhone, we also know that sitting quietly at a large, easy to read computer screen can be as valuable as taking and sending a secure message and photo/video with the iPhone.  That is why we have both available and included with each subscription.

Similarly, one can subscribe either via download from the App Store, or from our website ClickCare.com .  A free two week trial lets you start collaborating with your colleagues immediately–with an iPhone, with a desktop, with a laptop or iPad.

Use a needle to sew a laceration or a shirt.  Use a sledgehammer to crush a rock.

Use your ClickCare subscription in the way that is best for you at a particular time and in a particular place.

We look forward to your comments.
