Emerge Diagnostics, DoctorNow Develop Telemedicine Independent Medical Evaluations

Emerge Diagnostics and DoctorNow have partnered to offer the first telemedicine Independent Medical Evaluations (IMEs), the companies said.

With restrictions on in-person interaction, companies are looking toward telemedicine as an alternative to traditional care methods. This partnership creates a more objective IME evaluation (an “Integrated IME EFA”) that differs from any other IME as it uses Emerge´s proprietary telemedicine and Electrodiagnostic Functional Assessment (EFA) technology to provide additional patient information.

This technology enables “virtual palpation” for a more objective assessment, which is a critical component of the physician´s evaluation process that was, until now, impossible via telemedicine or any other remote/virtual platform. This is the first objective IME program available nationally as well as internationally.

Emerge Diagnostics, headquartered in Carlsbad, CA, delivers a new way to determine the location and age of soft tissue injuries. The company provides EFA and EFA-STM evaluations, plus a suite of virtual solutions: DoctorTriage, virtual clinics, and virtual COVID-19 telemedicine assessments with follow up as well as virtual IMEs. www.emergedx.com
