  • Orange County, CA (1888PressRelease) May 22, 2013 - PrescribeWellness, a cloud-based patient engagement platform, today appointed Dr. Alfred Damus as its chief medical officer.

    "We have developed an innovative technology and communication solution to improve access to preventive health services," said Al Babbington, CEO of PrescribeWellness. "Dr. Damus brings first-hand knowledge of what is lacking in the medical field in terms of motivating patient behavior, and managing chronic conditions. He offers us the opportunity to translate these strategies into provider-patient communications that improve compliance and access to life-saving treatments."

    A Fellow of American College of Emergency Physicians (FACEP), Dr. Damus is the president of Physician Resources of America, a physician recruiting company, and CEO of Total HospitalCare, an emergency department and hospitalist system analysis and implementation provider, with expertise in electronic medical record documentation and communication for rural and critical access facilities. He serves as the chief medical advisor for Polypill Rx, a company that provides custom-prescribed, compounded multi-med capsules. He is chairman of the Medical Advisory Board for BIOIQ, a health testing, health screening and wellness solutions company.

    Dr. Damus is a co-founder of Wingo Wireless, an organization that provides affordable high-speed internet to schools, universities, healthcare facilities and researchers, primarily those with an interest in HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment in west and central Africa. Wingo Wireless was founded on the belief that an Internet infrastructural backbone is essential to healthcare communication and education in underserved communities.

    "As physicians we would like to have more time to educate and motivate our patients," said Dr. Damus. "The PrescribeWellness methodology via their Automated Digital Intervention methodology assures the patient is receiving the knowledge and encouragement they need to better manage their health and improve outcomes, especially in the areas of medication adherence and chronic disease management."
