Why do patients need SmartDocFinder?

Here is a sample of patient case studies that we collected from our interviews with real patients, which support the need for novel patient-provider matching approaches. The names of the patients have been changed to protect their privacy.

 
Joanna is 31 years old, lives in Miami, and periodically visits an OBGYN for a routine checkup or to obtain birth control pills. She does not like it when a provider asks personal questions, such as why she needs birth control, which has happened several time in the past. Further, she has had a history of fibroids, and hence would like an OBGYN with relevant experience, such as a record of fibroid removal procedures.

SmartDocFinder™ allows Joanna to specify her preferences and conditions history, to find the best providers.
Peter is 59 years old, lives in Ohio and suffers from asthma. He believes that a combination of alternative and Western treatments works best for him, given that he has had positive experiences with breathing exercises and herbal remedies. Further, he likes to be involved in decisions on his treatment, which makes him more empowered. He moves frequently due to his job and has to visit on average three pulmonologists to find one that best matches his preferences.

SmartDocFinder™ allows Peter to express these preferences in a couple of minutes, and find the best providers for him.
Mary is 74 years old, lives in Los Angeles, holds a college degree and was recently diagnosed with lip cancer. She does not trust patient reviews as she once visited a provider with very negative reviews and had an excellent experience. Last year, she chose to visit a doctor who graduated from a top Medical School, but was very dissatisfied by the visit because he failed to adequately explain her condition or treatment.

SmartDocFinder™ allows Mary to easily specify why she was dissatisfied by a past provider, along with specifying other care preferences, such as the medical school importance or the experience on conditions relevant to lip cancer.
