BeneMedical, LLC creates digital solutions to assist doctors and patients in the quest for healthy lives and profitable medical practices.
We believe that informed patients and primary care practitioners are at the center of good healthcare. We work to facilitate the exchange of valuable information between doctors and patients. The same digitization that allows an elementary school student in Omaha, Nebraska to access the artwork of a museum in Paris, France should also serve to allow physicians and patients to access vital healthcare information anytime or anywhere it is needed.
AWVSolution.com is designed to increase the access of patients and providers to the valuable Annual Wellness Visit as provided by the United States Government’s Department of Health and Human Services Medicare program.
Medicare reported that in 2013 less than 6% of eligible Medicare recipients received their free wellness visits. AWVSolution.com was created to ensure that it is easier for patients and physicians to take advantage of this important preventive benefit.
