- The Staff
- Our Registered Nurses have an average of 10 years of clinical experience and undergo
an extensive training program before actually taking patient calls. Overseeing our nurses
are MedDial's two Medical Directors, Dr. Robert Johnston and Dr. Michael Weaver, both
heads of the Emergency Medicine departments at their respective hospitals.
- MedDial employs medical algorithms designed and updated by Dr. Barton Schmitt and Dr. David
Thompson. We encourage our participating physicians to review our algorithms. Access to our algorithm
base is made available by contacting your MedDial representative.
The Call Center
Our primary medical call center is located in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland, with nurses working remotely from throughout the United States.
The call center has been accredited by URAC for health call center services since 2000. This call center
serves the healthcare community coast-to-coast throughout the U.S. and Canada, and by the very
nature of its broad marketplace, pays particular attention to cultural diversity concerns. MedDial uses foreign language assistance when necessary. Disaster recovery capability is
assured through the use of mirrored technology, redundant relays, frame-relay switching and diesel
power back-up. All data is hosted securely by Terremark in Miami, FL.
