DULUTH, Georgia, November 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
Medical Innovation Holdings, Inc, (MIHI) announces an acceleration of deploying a national tele-medicine infrastructure with virtual addiction specialist to work with the thousands of Americans addicted to pain killers in all areas of the country with a focus on rural and remote areas of the country.
Having the President declare a National Public Health Emergency will provide federal health officials the ability to circumvent many existing policies regarding public health allowing for a national network to exist.
Jake Sanchez, CEO, explains, “Under the act Dr. Don Wright, Secretary of Health and Human Services, will be able to modify the practice of telemedicine. In other words, using telemedicine to treat addiction and prescribe medication for Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health and Insurance Program, known as CHIPS. We are uniquely positioned to answer this call to duty.”
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse there were 20,000 deaths in 2016 attributed to fentanyl and fentanyl analogs (synthetic opioids) with a total of 64,000 deaths due to overdoses in the USA. It is no wonder the President has declared it a national emergency. (https://www.drugabuse.gov/related-topics/trends-statistics/overdose-death-rates)
Sanchez goes on to say, “The government may also relax the licensor laws allowing doctors from any state to treat any patient. This could be a game changer in the use of telemedicine to solve national epidemics. The network can be deployed quickly because the communication infrastructure in many parts of the country is already in place. (In USA 99.73% of the population has access to Broadband Internet https://geoisp.com/us/) Our cloud-based software to provide the necessary medical information and records has been completed and is being tested. Aggregating abuse and addiction specialist can be easily accomplished by suspending the licensor laws.”
