ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New Mexico Software, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NMXC), a developer of medical IT services and solutions that enable improved and faster communication within the healthcare community, announced today the company will begin providing second opinion teleradiology interpretation for its customers.
CEO Dick Govatski said, "There is a solid market for patients and their families who want a second opinion about their medical issues. Even if just to confirm a condition that was previously diagnosed, patients often want the reassurance that comes with another professional review of an initial determination. This is a self-pay system. We will accept a valid credit card for the service. At this time most insurance companies do not provide for second opinion reimbursement."
"In addition to providing a written opinion and findings, consultation with the reviewing doctors may also be arranged," Govatski said.
New Mexico Software is offering the remote second opinion service to anyone with digital files as well as existing XR-Express customers who provide telemedicine service to over 9,000 facilities in the U.S.
"This is yet another critical step in fully utilizing the telemedicine technology being developed by New Mexico Software," said Rafael Rubio, VP Product Development and Technology. "The XR-EXpress platform is quickly becoming a leading service for telemedicine companies by enabling x-rays, CT's, echocardiograms, EKGs, ultrasounds and other diagnostics to be read and interpreted by qualified physicians at remote locations."
