Medical Datasoft International’s proprietary technology delivers robust, cloud-based computer-patient interview software, which assists medical and mental health professionals in the assessment and treatment of patients.
The interview, which may be completed from any Internet access, produces a professionally written, grammatically correct, patient specific, chart ready medical history (History of Present Illness, Review of Systems, Past Medical History, etc.) which is instantly loaded into the physician's electronic medical record (EMR/EHR).
The process TRANSFORMS healthcare by removing laborious, time-consuming data entry tasks from healthcare providers and/or staffs and giving it to patients, ultimately providing those patients greater involvement in their healthcare.
It is a solution, which enhances TELEMEDICINE by streamlining the provider-patient medical history interview, thus increasing the efficiency of healthcare providers.
The software is complete, beta tested and patented. Our extensive database is copyrighted.
Medical Datasoft International is a California registered C Corporation.

Our first project created computer-patient interview software, which produces psychosocial evaluations applicable to bariatric medicine and surgery prior to face-to-face examinations by psychotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists. The software greatly expedites and streamlines the process.
The second phase of development expanded the original computer-patient interview software to include the whole of general medicine and produces a patient specific, chart ready medical history professionally written in the vernacular of medicine. The patented, copyrighted and in depth database covers the extent of abnormal human physiology and is thus able to interview patients concerning any resultant symptoms.

How our Founders met
Rolf Gulbrandson, MD and Orville Easterly, D. Min met professionally 20+ years ago and subsequently developed a lasting personal and professional relationship.
The software was completed, beta tested, copyrighted and patented in 2014-15 after over 10 years of development and is ready for marketing.
Why we picked this idea to work on, domain expertise and how we know people need our product
Why: We recognized, early in our practices, the need for computer-patient interview software which would produce medical histories and psychosocial assessments. The intrusion of EHRs into medicine, which has turned healthcare providers into CLERK TYPISTS, has made this need paramount.
Domain Expertise: Orville Easterly designed the initial application and hired Troy Kruthoff and Robert Bagley, the owners of Blit.com, to write the code. A patent was granted on February 17, 2015 (US8,959,012 B2).
Need: The Mayo Clinic attempted in 1967 to create software which would interview patients and produce medical histories. The concept proved worthy but unreachable at that time. Other companies have since tried to produce similar software but have likewise fallen short. Our personal observations of this growing need in our practices motivated us. Our solution succeeded.
We have succeeded in creating a SaaS Cloud application and database which will interview patients from any Internet access and produces comprehensive, patient specific, grammatically correct medical histories written in the vernacular of medicine. The information may then be instantly downloaded into medical providers' computers/EHRs.
Many software companies have attempted to produce similar products. All have failed in that even the best result in simple or one word phrases which are grammatically incorrect, non-contextually punctuated, generic and require extensive editing and data entry by medical personnel. Our histories may be directly inserted into medical records with or without editing and are medically appropriate and defensible.
Substitutes: Healthcare providers may continue to act as clerk typists by laboriously entering data into EHRs, or our product can be adopted thereby greatly enhancing and streamlining the physician-patient interview process.
By giving data entry tasks to patients, healthcare providers are unburdened and patients are provided meaningful involvement in healthcare. Our beta results indicate a 25% increase in physician efficiency.
Our software patent and extensive database copyright testify to the uniqueness of out product.
What we understand about our business that other companies in it just don't get?
The companies in our market recognize the need to relieve healthcare providers of the data entry tasks that EHRs impose on them but they do not have the patented technology and copyrighted databases necessary to produce professionally written, patient specific, grammatically correct medical histories written in the vernacular of medicine which may be directly inserted into patients' medical records. Their products produce results which require extensive editing, are grossly incomplete and result in isolate words and non-contextual punctuation of little value to the medical profession.
