HealthLynked a global healthcare network focused on care management of its members and a provider of healthcare technologies that connects doctors, patients, and medical data, today announced the launch of DocLynk, its new telemedicine service enabling users to connect to healthcare providers in the HealthLynked Network from the convenience of their home by phone, web or mobile app. In addition to expanding the services offered within the HealthLynked Network, DocLynk will initially focus on women’s health, integrating HealthLynked’s Oohvie Women’s Health App to allow users to track menstrual cycles, order birth control pills, and at home testing services.
The company also announced Lisa Adamczyk, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, APRN, CNM, as its new Director of Telemedicine. Lisa Adamczyk has over 25 years of progressive clinical, operation and nursing leadership experience that makes her uniquely qualified to manage the launch of DocLynk. She is a certified nurse midwife with a master’s degree in Advanced Practice Nursing (APN) from the University of Illinois and a Doctorate in Nursing from Lewis University, holding active licenses in both Florida and Illinois. She has held many key leadership positions, most recently as director of NICU and Pediatrics for Naples Community Hospital. Prior to that, she was director of maternal child health at John H. Stronger hospital in Chicago, IL.
As has been widely reported, COVID-19 has accelerated the need for telemedicine services, creating more demand than ever before. Most telemedicine services are focused on mental health and services that do not require access to a patient’s medical records. DocLynk allows patients to share their HealthLynked medical records with their provider prior to the online visit, enabling providers to engage patients on a wider range of healthcare issues. Women’s health is a particular focus since there are a number of medical conditions that women routinely engage with their providers that we believe can be addressed effectively via the DocLynk telemedicine platform.
Dr. Michael Dent CEO stated, “We considered using an outsourced solution for our telemedicine needs but we decided to build DocLynk from the ground up to fully integrate with the HealthLynked Network and maintain the privacy of our patients’ medical information. We have seen a substantial amount of engagement with our Oohvie application to track menstrual cycles and having this information available to a healthcare provider for a telemedicine visit will significantly increase accurate diagnosis and treatment. I am excited to have Lisa Adamczyk take on the role of Director of Telemedicine, as she is uniquely qualified to provide leadership to our telemedicine services. Over the next few months, we will expand our services to include other areas of telehealth. The DocLynk app is designed to provide an integrated platform of information exchange, remote monitoring, care coordination, healthcare guidance and at home testing, which we believe will lead to a significant improvement in remote patient care.”
