The TCC has been serving thyroid cancer patients and doctors for years as a thyroid cancer registry, patient portal, clinical tool, and educational resource. These benefits have been, for HIPAA security reasons, reserved to the members area of the site. But in 2018, we are happy to be delivering a feature that is specifically designed to help patients who are not registered: the Thyroid Specialist Directory.
The system allows doctors to add information they feel would be relevant to patients, such as insurance they accept, and that info will be published into the directory. The goal is to provide patients with information that can help them make a decision when choosing a care team. We have a sample profile available here for you to review. Participating doctors will be able to enter info including:
- About section
- Insurance Participation
- Location info with mapping
- Appointment hours
- Accreditations and research
- Photos and video
So while we are giving busy doctors a chance to get their profiles updated, we hope you will subscribe to our email list below so we can keep you up to speed on all developments, like the Virtual Journal Club! Thanks!
