VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Women make 80 percent of healthcare decisions for their families.  GOeVisit is dedicated to making healthcare affordable and accessible to them by providing direct to patient telehealth solutions. In addition to a growing suite of modules that help women get treatment for conditions unique to them—including UTIs, yeast infections, and access to birth control—GOeVisit SmartExam now includes a clinical module to address mastitis. Patients experiencing pain associated with breastfeeding can use GOeVisit SmartExam to get treatment for mastitis, plugged milk ducts, and candidiasis of the breast or nipple (also known as thrush).

“Untreated breast infection can lead to serious and costly health complications, and to discontinued breastfeeding—an outcome that denies the mother and infant the various health and economic benefits of breastfeeding,” says Liz Bryant, CEO of MyCare MedTech Inc., the Canadian owner of GOeVisit.  “Moms with new babies don’t want to go back to the hospital or doctor’s office.  GOeVisit allows them to get care from home, without exposing newborns to germs.”

Nursing mothers can log on to SmartExam, answer a dynamic set of clinical questions, and upload photos, privately and securely, if necessary. A medical provider will review the information and reach out to deliver a diagnosis and treatment plan. If a prescription is required, it can be sent to the pharmacy of Mom’s choice, or can be delivered next business day, free of charge, anywhere in Canada.  

GOeVisit is launching the mastitis module on March 8, in celebration of International Women’s Day.

“GOeVisit SmartExam has been helping women from across Canada get treatment for medical conditions since 2016,” says Liz Bryant, CEO of GOeVisit. “Whether they need care for UTIs or yeast infections, or access to birth control, convenient and affordable care is at their fingertips.”

In addition to the new mastitis module, GOeVisit SmartExam helps Canadians access diagnosis and treatment for more than 350 common medical conditions.
