MyLooks: A Concierge Plastic Surgery Company that is a Game Changer for Patient & Physician
Nov 8, 2012 - 5:05:33 PM
(HealthNewsDigest.com) - New York, NY – More than ever, health care delivery systems are shifting in the Unites States, and doctors are radically changing how they practice medicine. What is driving the trend? For one, providing health care is becoming increasingly complex. Keeping up with innumerable regulations from private insurers and the government, transitioning to electronic medical records (EMR) and caring for a growing population of chronically ill patients make it nearly impossible for a full-time practicing doctor to manage patients and a practice.
As a result, a growing number of doctors are partnering with corporations or group practices and transforming how medical care is offered in this country. This is especially true in the field of plastic surgery which is enormously competitive and requires a physician to have a great deal of disposable income in his/her practice to support daily operational expenses. MyLooks is a company that well understands the competitive nature of plastic surgery and is providing a way for doctors to still operate in a private setting while relieving the cost of debilitating overhead so that their physicians have time to focus on what is paramount: Patient care.
“In many ways, patients benefit from bigger health care organizations that offer higher quality and better coordinated care,” says Aman Datta, CEO of MyLooks, the first concierge provider that offers a suite of cosmetic surgery services for patients. “The trend away from small private practices is driven by growing concerns for doctors – from business hassles like payroll taxes and hiring and firing employees. With MyLooks, now they get to refocus on practicing medicine.”
What is MyLooks?
MyLooks is a multidisciplinary team of marketing and medical experts who have created a consumer-facing brand designed to help patients access affordable, full-service beauty and wellness options, including cosmetic surgery. Patients will have direct access to both a MyLooks health expert and to a personal board certified surgeon. MyLooks unites the top board-certified plastic surgeons in the most advanced medical facilities, offering the highest quality patient care at affordable prices. This is the new standard in today’s healthcare.
MyLooks Gives Plastic Surgery a Facelift
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, plastic surgery is a $10 billion dollar industry with 9.2 million procedures performed last year.
“As one of the fastest growing healthcare markets, the revenue potential is staggering,” says Aman. “People wish to look and feel their best and cosmetic surgery is more mainstream today than ever before. However, the marketplace is fragmented. There is no clear leader and no trusted brand providing credible information to patients. The cosmetic surgery field is lacking a useful and well-designed online resource that further enhances patient care. By MyLooks, you're choosing to take control of your healthcare - and to provide yourself with the best resources, most up-to-date cosmetic surgery procedures and services, and to connect yourself with a growing network of elite physicians and professionals seeking to provide you with concierge medical consultation and information.”
Benefits for Doctors:
Ability for doctors to collaborate with each other in a network of peers
A well defined medical advisory board that supports the independence and authority of the doctor in the clinic
MyLooks’ vision and philosophy of focusing on the artistic and technical sides of plastic surgery is cohesive with physicians; MyLooks understands it is an art as much as a science
MyLooks’ focus on veteran and seasoned doctors to form the core of its medical expertise
MyLooks’ ultimate focus on the customer experience to ensure that every touch point with the customer (Web, Google, advertising, call center, clinic, etc.) is consistent and focused on the customers’ needs and wants
Aman continues, “Our vision is to create a cosmetic surgery brand that patients can trust. Our extensive background in business and customer experience, coupled with our strong medical operation experience, position us to become the leading global brand in plastic surgery.”
