MENDHAM, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2012) - Giffen Solutions, Inc., creator of increasingly popular smartphone apps and web portals, MedXCom and MedXCom Patient, announced today that Harry J. Carr has joined the company as the new Chief Executive Officer. MedXCom is a market-leading electronic health information service founded by physicians that is designed to profoundly enhance communications between patients or their caregivers with physicians and other health service providers with MedXCom's HIPAA compliant, patent pending secure voice, text and data messaging capabilities.
Carr previously served as the Chief Executive Officer of Simpler Networks Inc, Chief Executive Officer of former Tellium Inc., COO and President of a multi-billion dollar division of Lucent Technologies and COO of Yurie Systems and held various positions with AT&T. He is a well-known, proven leader in the telecommunications, technology and data industry.
"We are absolutely thrilled to have a technology industry veteran with an amazing track record of building start-up companies and growing businesses spearheading our growth. We have had explosive reach with both physicians and patients and we feel Harry is the ideal candidate to further enhance our growth," said Dr. Michael Nusbaum, Founder of Giffen Solutions Inc.
Recently MedXCom has won the praises of doctors throughout the United States as helping to "manage patient communication," "fight the prescription drug seeking war," and improve the communication with staff and all patients. Carr will oversee the growth and increase the growing visibility and recognition of these unique smartphone apps.
"I am truly honored to spearhead the MedXCom team -- our portal and our Smartphone apps are revolutionizing how patients and doctors will communicate anytime, anywhere. The market is wide-open for us," said Harry Carr. "The feedback from doctors and patients has been absolutely tremendous and we know we have something valuable and unique to offer. We have the opportunity to enhance the quality of medical care while making doctors and patients lives easier. This is a company that was literally built by practicing doctors for doctors, their patients and other health providers."
The hub of communications today is a practice's telephone system and answering service. By enabling a flexible, real time flow of voice, text and data communications between patients, doctors, and other health care providers, combined with relevant medical data MedXCom will transform how patients and health care providers interact. MedXCom makes pertinent and critical patient information available to physicians in real time, when it is needed most, at the time of patient contact, regardless of where the patient or doctor is. This enhances a patient's quality of care while safeguarding physicians by having critical information available to them on their smartphone.
"MedXCom is the only service that can record, transcribe and archive all your communications," said Dr. Michael Nusbaum, Founder and CEO of Giffen Solutions, Inc., creator of MedXCom. "MedXCom is an easy to implement, cost effective, fully automated communications system that is custom designed to meet the needs of individual practices, office staff and patients."
MedXCom for physicians and MedXCom Patient are available today for the iPhone and will shortly be available for other smartphone platforms.
Dr. Nusbaum co-founded Hamilton EMR in 1998 which was recently sold. Dr. Nusbaum and his team at Giffen are dedicated to improving health care, communication, and HIPAA compliance through innovative technology.
