Article by Dr Fran Kendall in Medical Care for Children and Adults with Developmental Disabilities Textbook Mucopolysaccharidoses Medical Care for Children and Adults with Developmental Disabilities Textbook Article by Dr Fran Kendall in Seminars in Neurology Journal "We are accepting the challenge to improve healthcarethrough technology and believe that the future of medicine is indeed now," Dr. Kendall stated. Virtual Medical Practice, the brainchild of Dr. Fran Kendall, former owner of a successful biotech company, is geared towards the diagnosis and management of children and adults with rare genetic disorders. Utilizing a number of innovative services such as webcam and Skype technology, EMR (electronic medical records), and an internet based phone and fax system, the practice can provide excellence in healthcare to an underserved population in a cost-effective fashion. In the past, because of the rarity of these disorders and the lack of specialists to care for the population, many patients needed to travel far distances to see a medical expert -- losing wages and engendering airfare, hotel and other travel costs. Others simply found the process cost prohibitive, resulting in no access to necessary medical information and care. "Many areas of the country do not have qualified specialists. Those specialists have limited or no experience at all with these disorders," explained Dr. Kendall. Since understanding the disease process and implementing preventative measures can have a drastic impact not only on quality of life for an affected individual but for their healthcare costs in general. Gaining access to a medical specialists is vital and the key component of this healthcare model. "Not all areas of medicine are amenable to this model," says Dr. Kendall. "We can charge reasonable fees," Dr. Kendall explains," because we have limited overhead. Overall, we are able to provide more care to a greater number of patients at a dramatically lower cost to the healthcare system." "I am very excited about the widespread impact this type of model can have on patients and their quality of life. Instead of limiting a practice to a specific office, we can now provide increased access using technology," Dr. Kendall relayed.
