PatientPerspectives.org Is a Unique Videoconferencing Resource for Men Considering a Penile Implant

PatientPerspectives.org, a CloudVisit Telemedicine and American Medical Systems Collaboration, Provides a One-of-a-Kind Program for Men to Discuss Penile Implants With Those Who Have Experienced the Procedure

COLD SPRING, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2015) - CloudVisit Telemedicine, in partnership with American Medical Systems (AMS), announces a patient liaison service for men that have erectile dysfunction (ED) and are considering a penile implant. Men and their spouses making the life-changing decision oftentimes search for a guide during the process. PatientPerspectives.org connects men with other men who have a penile implant  using CloudVisit's HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing for virtual face-to-face sessions.

A penile implant is a permanent solution for ED. Typically implanted after a patient has tried other ED treatments without success, the surgical procedure is a meaningful step for a man and his partner. With PatientPerspectives.org, men and their partners can schedule video sessions or phone calls with patients who have experience with the procedure, as well as partners who helped them through it. 

PatientPerspectives.org uses a simple, user-friendly interface. Before creating an account, visitors can "meet" the Champions -- men who have a penile implant. Upon reading Champions' profiles and viewing their availability through the interactive calendar feature, visitors to the site can create an account and schedule appointments for discussion. Appointments are typically 15 minutes long, and visitors have the option to chat with multiple Champions to gather different opinions and experience stories.

PatientPerspectives.org acts a resource for men and their partners to understand that they are not alone. Long-term ED can affect relationships and impose feelings of low self-esteem. The videoconferencing program helps to restore confidence and a feeling of a "light at the end of the tunnel." It also allows answers to questions that may not be readily available through a simple Google search.

PatientPerspectives.org reminds its users that any information gathered from its services should not be considered as professional medical advice -- just the personal experiences of its Champions. Men considering a penile implant should talk with their doctors to review treatment options before settling on a procedure decision.
