At Horvath Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. David Horvath values your time. He also believes that the best possible doctor-patient relationship is one made up of thorough communication and detailed information. Our board-certified plastic surgeon has put in place an innovative new system at his practice called TouchMD. Recently endorsed by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), this technology is changing the way in which patients interact with their doctors, turning any wait time you encounter in the exam room into an opportunity to learn more about your procedure and treatment from a detailed, interactive touch-screen computer program.
What TouchMD Does
Touch MD is a computer hardware and software system designed to improve the relationship between doctor and patient and better-educate patients on what they can expect. With touch-screen computer technology, TouchMD allows patients who are sitting in the exam room to view information on specific topics and procedures, enhancing their education and allowing the patient a fuller understanding of the process so they can more efficiently communicate their thoughts, questions, and goals with Dr. Horvath. Patients can even view animated models that can show them the potential results of specific treatments.
The TouchMD technology also helps Dr. Horvath in providing you with a clear understanding of many aspects of treatment, giving him the ability to use interactive and visual tools to aid in the communication and explanation of treatment options, risks and benefits, potential results, and other factors.
Being more educated on specific procedures and able to ask specific questions helps both you and Dr. Horvath, giving you an enhanced comprehension of what to expect and providing Dr. Horvath with a tool to give patients that makes educational use of any downtime they incur while in our office – allowing him to more efficiently communicate with you as well.
