Webcam MD - Launch of revolutionary web-based medical technology
Date:11/14/2007

TORONTO, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ - Wednesday November 14, 2007 will see the launch of Webcam MD, an innovative web based medical technology site developed by Toronto's New Media Entrepreneur, Rob Tayler. The site will enable patients to have a live, visual, medical examination with a licensed physician over the Internet. Tayler emphasizes the benefit of this technology especially for people who have trouble visiting a medical clinic in person because of mobility issues, a lack of transportation, or a lack of medical facilities in the area. "This is a significant improvement on the static, self-diagnosing websites so prevalent on the Internet today," says Tayler.

Marque Landells, Webcam MD's director of media and public relations adds, "Visits to hospital emergency rooms have increased significantly over the past few years, in part by patients who seek emergency care for non-emergencies. This trend has led to staggering wait times in emergency rooms across North America. We anticipate that the instant online medical attention that Webcam MD provides will reduce anxiety and concern about symptoms and, as a result, reduce the burden placed on emergency rooms across North America."

Webcam MD's Chief Medical Advisor is Dr. Agostino Cervone, a board-certified surgeon and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead, NY. Dr. Cervone first read about Webcam MD in the New York Times and immediately recognized it's potential. "This online medical technology will be highly beneficial, for example to perform skin cancer checkups and post surgical wound management," says Dr. Cervone. "Webcam MD uses a specialized high-resolution zoom lens to perform skin cancer check-ups. The number of deaths due to skin cancer is rising among most fair-skinned populations, and this new technology is a highly efficient way to improve the chances of life-saving early detection."

Rob Tayler and his team are currently working on a number of future applications of this technology, such as Webcam MD Satellite, a live medical service which will be used to benefit medically under serviced communities. They are also in the process of preparing a live demonstration, scheduled for Thursday, December 6th 2007, during which Dr. Cervone will perform a public, online medical examination.
