Telemedicine4You, Unlimited 24/7 access to a board certified physician - via phone or online video

February 26, 2016


Raymond Lavine, Principal at Telemedicine4you a company which advises individuals and companies to have a membership for telemedicine services joins eHealth Radio and the Health News, Health Care & Telemedicine Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Raymond Lavine discuss the following:

  • What is Telemedicine and why does it matter?
  • When is telemedicine appropriate for people to use?
  • What are differences between a regular doctor visit and telemedicine interactions
  • Is telemedicine available with our hospital or group plans?
  • How does telemedicine coordinate with regular health plans?
  • How do companies benefit with having telemedicine plans whether they have or do not offer health insurance


Duration: 17:18


Raymond's expertise is not only focused with Extended care benefits but also Telemedicine membership plans. Six years ago, he realized there was a relationship between care giving and the value of telemedicine plans which would allow people who have routine or chronic care issues to contact a doctor without having to make an appointment to visit a doctor or go to urgent or emergency care. He then realized that telemedicine would be of value to people of all ages and would also be beneficial to companies to offer telemedicine to employees.


Raymond not only advises individuals and companies with how to be a member and utilize a telemedicine plan, he also uses it himself to speak with doctors when he has routine health issues and wants to speak with a physician.


Lavine has a BA in International Relations from the University of Southern California; an MBA and MA from Drucker-Ito Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University; and the CLTC designation.

Stereotaxis’ Odyssey™ portfolio of products provides an innovative enterprise solution for integrating, recording and networking interventional lab information within hospitals and around the world. Odyssey™ Vision integrates data for magnetic and standard interventional labs, enhancing the physician workflow through a consolidated display of multiple systems and eliminating the challenge of interacting simultaneously with many separate diagnostic systems. The Odyssey Cinema™ Studio then captures a complete record of synchronized procedure data that can be viewed live or from a comprehensive archive of cases performed. The Odyssey™ solution then enables hospitals to efficiently share live and recorded clinical data anywhere around the world to attract patients and promote collaboration.

In addition, Stereotaxis also designs, manufactures and markets an advanced cardiology instrument control system for use in a hospital's interventional surgical suite to enhance the treatment of coronary artery disease and arrhythmias. The Niobe® Remote Magnetic Navigation System is designed to enable physicians to complete more complex interventional procedures by providing image guided delivery of catheters and guidewires through the blood vessels and chambers of the heart to treatment sites. This is achieved using computer-controlled, externally applied magnetic fields that govern the motion of the working tip of the catheter or guidewire, resulting in improved navigation and reduced x-ray exposure.

The core components of the Stereotaxis systems have received regulatory clearance in the U.S., Europe, Canada and elsewhere.
