MedZed launches at-home pediatric care service | Families
ATLANTA -- MedZed, an Atlanta-based at-home pediatric care service, is providing more healthcare options and significantly more convenience. MedZed’s team of highly-trained pediatric nurses and pediatricians operate after normal office hours, seven days a week, in the comfort of a patient’s home. With MedZed, parents and children now have the option to forego crowded emergency rooms, minute clinics and doctors’ offices for the ease and comfort of an at-home visit still assured to end with a diagnosis and a lollipop.
MedZed serves children ages 2-17 with common symptoms such as rashes, cold and flu, sore throat and eye or ear pain through a house-call service. Using secure live-streaming video and advanced medical technology, pediatricians can evaluate, diagnose and treat symptoms with the assistance of an on-site pediatric nurse in the patient’s home. Through a confidential, protected patient portal, pediatricians can also easily access patient records and send prescriptions straight to the customer’s preferred pharmacy.
Scott Schnell, CEO, co-founded MedZed with Jeff Grossman, M.D., who serves as the company’s Executive Chairman. “As a father and businessman, when Jeff introduced me to the idea, I immediately understood his vision and saw the need for a company like MedZed tailored specifically to help parents with busy schedules,” said Co-Founder Scott Schnell. “We believe the combination of a nurse in the home and telemedicine to connect the patient and doctor will quickly be ingrained into the future of patient care in this country, and offering the service to parents and their children when and where they want it just made sense.”
The rapidly growing MedZed team consists of several highly-qualified and personable nurses and pediatricians. The board-certified doctors are licensed in Georgia and have each practiced over 10 years. The license-registered nurses have all undergone extensive background checks and have served over five years in the field. On top of extensive training, the team shares a passion for helping children and improving the quality of care in the healthcare industry.
“MedZed allows me to diagnose and treat patients more efficiently,” said Dr. Julia Kaufman of MedZed. “The technology and service is easy to use, and I know parents will appreciate the quality of service conveniently offered at their home.”
The company currently serves patients in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Morningside, Druid Hills, Peachtree Battle, Peachtree Park, Brookhaven, Ansley Park, Vinings, Virginia Highland and other neighborhoods inside and outside the Perimeter.
