At World Inter-Med we come to work every day because we want to solve the biggest problem in healthcare.
World Inter-Med (WIM) was founded in 2013 by medical and business professionals who are passionate about what they do. Our mission is to connect insurers, physicians and patients through a single “real-time” electronic healthcare record to drive better health and save lives. Our extensive backgrounds range from healthcare, medicine, technology and finance.
We founded WIM because the healthcare is behind some 25 to 30 years in technology. Our core management team is made up of physicians, wall street analyst and business executives. We have watched physicians, nurses, clinics, hospitals, insurers and patients struggle to collaborate, coordinate and share medical data among themselves. We’ve also noticed that every patient has several medical records – by age 50 a patient has on average 22 medical records. None of these records communicate with one another.
The market is currently served poorly and inconsistently by a patchwork of competitors who have rushed to launch their products, flooding the market with a wave of disappointing product that only address 20% – 40% of the problems.
So as the founders of WIM came together their goal was clear, to create a platform that will improve the universal and secure means to instantly access healthcare records between providers. This is a major problem in the industry not addressed by governmental regulatory agencies, professional healthcare organizations or insurance companies. This segment of the industry is lacking in quality control. Insurers, providers and patients would all benefit from a completely reliable and concise source that promotes the highest quality, proactive information.
World Inter-Med, Inc. has had, from its inception, a single goal of providing the industry with a single tool that would deliver a complete record viewable by all in a usable format that meet our mission of “SEE IT, TOUCH IT, GET IT” (SITIGI).
Our goal is for each and ever person to have one medical record. A LIVE Electronic Healthcare Record that all physicians, nurses and medical personal can securely access from anywhere and whenever they are authorized to access it.
Ironically – in 2014 it was disclosed that over 400,000 people die each year due to medical record mistakes. Our goal is to significantly reduce this number.
Prevent Medical Fraud
We can help reduce medical fraud on the front-end, at the physician/patient visit – before it happens. in 2014 Medical fraud has soared to well over 98 Billion dollars and is increasing every year.
Create a Cohesive Environment
We are creating a united and uniform platform that allows the insurer, physician and the patient to work together in a single environment for the betterment of the patients health. Allowing communication in real-time – Imagine that!
The current healthcare system is extremely fragmented and many physicians, clinics and hospitals operate in a isolated environment, and in some cases even certain departments within the same hospital cannot share information. Patients medical records are often printed and sent to other physicians and hospitals. This is costly and time-consuming and delays patient information.
Quick Reporting & Billing
Often times our flu vaccines are ineffective because the government is working from old data. Guesses have to be made which are not always right. We can send this data within seconds of the physician/patient visit. As well, we can decrease the billing cycle and physicians can file claims directly from the examination room.
