Learn more about this tool and how Dr. Augenstein integrates it into his practice.
What is TouchMD?
A tool that allows Dr. Augenstein to easily and efficiently personalize a consultation with state-of-the-art technology, TouchMD represents a modern advancement in the industry. Touch-screen capabilities allow him to quickly pull up specific information relevant to the patient, as well as create images that can show how a chosen plastic surgery procedure or nonsurgical treatment could change that unique patient’s appearance for the better. Available via a tablet or other Internet-connected device, TouchMD is also a virtual resource that puts information directly into patients’ hands. Once granted access to the portal, patients can research potential procedures, as well as gain further insight into how a particular treatment would personally impact their appearance. It’s like a consultation that can happen just about anywhere at any time of day or night; the patient controls how long to spend on any aspect of the educational materials.
How does TouchMD work?
Patients who experience the system at Dr. Augenstein’s practice will then be given login credentials, which will allow them to access the service at their convenience. Once signed in, they will be able to view general information, as well as specific documents and files related to their personal aesthetic journey. This can include:
- Drawings, photos, and videos
- Care instructions
- Pre- and post-visit tips and guidelines
Patients can even sign documents and send images to other people.
How do I use TouchMD?
Dr. Augenstein’s team will give you all of the information you need to access it on your own device. You supply the laptop, tablet, or smartphone, and we’ll supply the keys to your personalized, at-home consultation, as well as help with how to log in and navigate the system.
What sets TouchMD apart?
Much like Dr. Augenstein, the system is committed to keeping pace with industry advances. The resource updates regularly to ensure information is as current as possible. The portal is easy to navigate and puts a range of resources—from general facts to personalized images to practice contact numbers—all in one place. In essence, TouchMD creates a bridge between Dr. Augenstein’s office and a patient’s home.
Why did Dr. Augenstein bring TouchMD to his practice?
