Reaching Out to Physicians to Manage the Community Health in Tough Times
Published in Ethan | 9 months ago

Doctors and medical professionals are busy people. Throw a pandemic into the mix, and health care professionals across the country are tougher to reach individually than a president during an impeachment trial. Sharing critical medical updates with doctors during this time is both necessary and difficult. It’s the reason MD Select offers a variety of online medical lists like their BC physician directory.

Community health professionals, mental health professionals and government bodies tasked with communications for all Canada’s official national health organizations rely on quick and unfettered access to doctors who serve as front-lines of defence during a national health crisis. Subscribing to a digital platform like MD Select’s BC physician directory provides these organizations with a platform to get important messaging out to doctors and other healthcare professionals when it’s most important to do so. False information floods social media so quickly that having a reliable resource of information is critical to the public. Using the MD Select subscription-based online database is vital to communicating up-to-date information doctors can then disseminate to their colleagues and patients.

For provincially-focused outreach to doctors it’s easy to simply conduct an Ontario physician search and generate a list of doctors and all the vital information about them. That includes their contact information, their location, their area of medical expertise and specialties, the languages they speak, fellowships and graduated university and other relevant information. Trying to compile that list on your own would take thousands of man hours and even more to update and keep current. MD Select does that for subscribers by updating the information several times each year; if a doctor moves his or her practice, or is hired on by a clinic in another province, that information will be updated so the list can be relied upon by users. Like all services provided by MD Select, an Ontario physician directory will quickly become an important communications tool during a pandemic like the one cause by the COVID-19 virus.

Doctors and nurses are working extremely hard and long hours to cope with the demand during the coronavirus crisis. To avoid complete burnout, medical professionals need to decompress and get out of that environment. Searching for support for medical professionals in hospitals, clinics and medical facilities is easier through MD Select. Sharing information on needs in other provinces is possible through platforms like the BC physician directory and the Ontario physician directory. Subscribing is easy and affordable, and navigation is simple. Information is easily downloaded and sharable.
