Medeo Gives Patients Remote Access to Medical Care
Medeo.ca is a Vancouver-based website and app that provides secure video conferencing technology that enables patients and doctors in British Columbia to connect using their computer or Apple mobile device. Patients sign up via their computer at Medeo.ca through a simple step-by-step process. Patients sign in to Medeo (via webpage or app) and fill out a ‘case’ request, in which they state why they need to see the doctor. This helps physicians decide which cases are suitable for an online video consultation. Patients may then attach any necessary photos or files that are relevant to the visit.
• Patients can upload scanned copies of previous test results or consultations from other doctors for storage on their profile (this can be securely accessed by the patient for reference).
• When ready to see the doctor, patients are connected by online video with a Medeo Coordinator who help them ensure that their computer is set-up correctly.
• The patient is connected to a doctor for their online visit. Medically necessary services provided by physicians powered by Medeo are publicly funded for BC residents with a valid medical services number (MSP). A Medeo app for Apple devices is free to download from iTunes.
