Improve Patient Specific Care and Physician Efficiency

The quality and efficiency of patient care will be improved by the enhanced connectivity that is achieved through participation in this disease specific system. Physicians and their staff will save time by using the large library of patient education videos. The TCCC also has the ability to send email alerts when new information is available in the system. It is anticipated that patient satisfaction will also be enhanced.

Physician members of the TCCC will have immediate access to all of their patient records anywhere in the world as long as they have an internet connection. Through the use of the doctor banner you will be able to easily access the most pertinent information about your patient, without having to sift through his or her entire electronic or paper health record.

Communication

The TCCC facilitates communication through the implementation of email alerts which decrease the need for letter dictations and telephone calls or faxes. Additionally, the TCCC provides educational modules that offer valuable information for patients about thyroid disease. This resource allows the physician to focus on discussing the important questions with an educated patient rather than explaining time consuming details at a time when the patient may be unable to concentrate.

Collaboration

The TCCC facilitates long-term follow-up between collaborating physicians. All doctors within a patient’s care circle will be able to assess the individual’s response to therapy and subsequent recommended level of post-treatment surveillance. These decisions are guided by the Clinical Decision Making Modules (CDMMs) of the application, which analyze specific data and make recommendations to providers and patients based on history and risk of recurrence.
