Miramont Family Medicine, a group practice in Fort Collins, Colorado, has four offices with staff and patients in each location. For physicians, finding the time to be physically present where and when they are needed can be difficult. John Bender, MD, Miramont's CEO and a diplomat for the American Board of Family Medicine, was looking for a better means to connect with patients and staff when he was in one place and they were in another – a way that would not require a person on the other end to answer a call or otherwise facilitate, especially when a phone call just isn't enough.
