John Doe may be
a registered user (legal age, if requesting services for minors) on the MyTeleDoc
app 116, and he/she can click the
app icon 117 and launch the user version
of the MyTeleDoc application 118 on
their mobile device 116.

Upon activation of
the MyTeleDoc user app 116, stage 120 is initiated. Registered user
(John Doe) 112 may be prompted to
select his/her symptoms (or symptoms of an individual under their care) from
the list of symptoms 122, or type in
their symptom in the search bar 123
and select the ones that best apply, or simply request the type of service. Or
they may just select checkup or consultation and click submit 124. The symptoms or service type, then
in one embodiment, can be communicated with the MyTeleDoc app server 135
to determine a list of physicians that meet the user’s requirements.

MyTeleDoc app
server 135 can generate a physicians’
list 124 of physician’s that meet
user’s requirements and availability. The user may be presented (on user mobile device 116) with one of the physician
that meets the user/patient requirements. The selected physician may be presented with his/her photo,
his/her credentials, and his/her rating. User may have the ability to
request for a new physician or select the matched physician, which can then send
a service request to the chosen physician.

In stage 130, MyTeleDoc application 118 on mobile device 116 can communicate with the MyTeleDoc
app server 135 to configure and send
a message to the user-selected physician’s
app (physician version) on the physician’s device(s) 142 (sequence A). The next few stage are highlighted in stage 140 of the diagram. The user-selected
physician 141 device(s) 142 may receive a notification on physician version of MyTeleDoc app. The physician 141 may be notified of request for
service from user (John Doe) 112,
with a small description of their symptoms or type of service request 144. Then, the physician may be prompted to either accept or
decline the service. Upon acceptance, stage 145 (sequence B) may be initiated. In this stage, the
physician can be matched with a nurse in the user’s (John Doe) local area 146.

In stage 145, the MyTeleDoc app server 135 may utilize the user’s mobile device GPS feature (user
may be prompted to allow access) to locate the user’s location and locates the most
geographically proximate healthcare providers (Nurse Practitioners, Registered
Nurse, Physician Assistant). All nurse practitioners, registered nurses,
physician assistants will be grouped together and referred to as “providers”
from herein.

The app may identify
the available providers and may match the provider that most appropriately fits
the appointment time and required background. The physician can be presented
with the provider’s name, credentials and rating. The physician may have the
ability to select the provider selected or request for new provider. After the
physician has selected a provider, the telemedicine server 135 may send a “request for service” notification to the provider
which can initiate sequence C (stage 150).

In stage 150, the provider 151 receives a notification on the MyTeleDoc app (provider edition)
on their device 152. Provider may be
prompted to accept or decline the physician’s 141 request for service. If
the provider accepts, notifications can be sent to physician’s device 142 and patient’s 116 device(s)
confirming the appointment.

In one embodiment,
the addition of appointments to the calendar on physician’s, provider’s and user’s device(s) is
contemplated. Further contemplations include automatic signaling of reminder(s)
of the appointment to physician,
provider and user.

The provider then travels 153 to user John Doe’s house 154 with a Medpod
156 (or a different suppliers’
telemedicine device). The provider
then conducts tests 155 with the
Medpod equipment 156, as the
physician guides him/her via video conference 157.
