I’m Bryan Fine, MD, MPH, CEO & Founder of Percentric. This e-newsletter – always evolving – focuses on keeping you well by addressing both non-COVID-19 and COVID-19 health concerns. We work hard to keep it real, and real-time.
Our proprietary software, PercyMD, that we developed to support our doctor-by-text platform, got a little shout out online last week. Pretty cool stuff!
Just a reminder, we have cut back our brief to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. You can check out our blog here if you’re missing us!
As more states begin re-opening various parts of the economy, remember that this virus hasn’t just gone away, and a new study says it may continue to be a pandemic for up to 2 years– and it could get worse before it gets better.
I came across this article yesterday about the moral dilemma of “snitching” on people who are “breaking the rules” of lock down. No comments- or judgments- from me either way. Just thought it was interesting food for thought.
Check out the latest installment in John Krasinski’s Some Good News to see a one of a kind graduation celebration and find out who 2020 grads got as their virtual commencement speakers. Guaranteed to make you smile.
Today’s question: “Hi doc. Can you refill my losartan? I’m almost out.”
This is a question I got a couple days ago via our doctor-by-text platform. (On their end, it was as easy as just sending a text. No calling your doctor’s office, no pressing 3 and staying on hold for 4 minutes, no leaving a message with a nurse and waiting for a call back. Just sending a regular ol’ text.) The answer to this question was absolutely yes! COVID-19 may be dominating the airwaves right now, but other health concerns haven’t just disappeared. We’re here to help, whether your question is, “Do I have COVID?” or “Can you refill my prescription?”- and everything in between.
