Yes! Musculoskeletal conditions are uniquely positioned for effective telehealth episodes of care, as Orthopedic conditions can be effectively managed remotely. BICMD experts have been trained to perform their analysis and deliver their expertise in a virtual environment. Our experts are sure to provide you with quality care, creating the same relationship as in-person without the travel time and office waits. Additionally, all BICMD providers are experts in their field, meaning they’ve seen hundreds or thousands of cases similar to yours. Through BICMD’s telehealth platform, an expert MD can accurately review your information and advise you on how to move forward with your orthopedic condition.
Absolutely.  At BICMD we want you to pick the expert that is right for you.  While the choice of doctor is uniquely yours, BICMD uses a matching process to recommend you doctors that are world-renowned experts in your condition. The choice is yours.
The three services we offer at BICMD include: a Medical Record Review, an On-demand Telemedicine visit, and a Comprehensive Telemedicine visit. As part of our Comprehensive Telemedicine service, you will have the option of uploading your medical records and scheduling a virtual visit with a BICMD Expert of your choice. Prior to your visit, your  Expert will review your medical records and ask you clarifying questions during your visit. After your visit, they will provide a summary report that includes recommendations for next steps.  For an On-demand Telemedicine visit, you will be able to connect directly for a virtual visit with our available network of on-call orthopedic surgeons. Similar to an in-person walk-in clinic, you will not need to upload any medical records, but you may share your screen if you wish to do so.  For Medical Records Review, your selected expert will review your records and provide a summary report with treatment recommendations that answer your questions. This service does not include a virtual visit.
With Telehealth, you can be seen anytime, anywhere! Telemedicine eliminates travel time and expenses, and allows you to be seen at your convenience, without leaving the comfort of your home.
Now that you have received a second opinion, the choice is yours! Second opinions are often used to confirm that the original diagnosis and treatment option you received are correct. Your BICMD expert may agree with your local provider, or may suggest a different course of action. You can choose to follow your original treatment option with your primary doctor, or contact your BICMD Expert to follow up with them in person at their physical location.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Medical Record Upload

For instructions on how to upload your medical records and imaging, please refer to our patient portal. As you are prompted to upload your documents, follow the instructions that are presented in that step. If your medical images aren’t uploading, check the file format. Medical image studies come in different file formats, They can have a DICOM file extension (.dcm) or no file extension at all. Acceptable file formats are: PDF, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, CT, X-Ray, MRI, US, or PET. If your medical records are paper copies instead of files downloaded on your device, we recommend scanning them and saving them as a PDF, PNG, or JPEG. This will allow you to upload the files easily when you are asked for them.
Your records and imaging can be requested from your current provider. Most commonly, these documents are delivered on a disk; however, they may also provide them via secure email. We strongly suggest that you request your medical records prior to booking your Medical Record Review or Comprehensive Consultation.

The booking process with BICMD was a quick and efficient process. I had my medical imaging on a disk, and the virtual care facilitator helped me get my images to my BICMD expert.

Before my BICMD consultation, I didn’t fully understand my treatment options. During my virtual visit, I was offered multiple treatment options with advantages and disadvantages for each. I am confident that I chose the right treatment option for me.
