MedPerson.Net is the critical IT infrastructure that powers the network of MedPerson portals around the world. It is cloud-based and uses end-to-end encryption for video calls and file exchange via webRTC. This provides our global community of medical doctors with secure and reliable means of real-time communications with patients in an online environment that is both HIPAA-compliant for US-users and complies with the UK Data Protection Act 1998, as amended in 2018; and GDPR 2018 in Europe .
Our purpose is to give MedPerson doctors the tools that they need to provide medical consultation and advice to patients in remote locations who do not have ready access to a doctor or physician, or simply to people who find online consultation more convenient.
To get an opinion from a medical practitioner, you would be required to complete an online registration. This will include your providing a brief medical history.
Caveat: This service is not available for medical emergencies nor should it replace face-to-face consultation and physical examination with your regular doctor. In case of medical emergencies please dial the appropriate emergency hotline in your country of residence to be connected to first responders.
A consultation with a doctor, typically will last for 15 minutes.

Your conversation with the doctor is peer-to-peer, so no one can listen in. The line is encrypted so your data is secure.
If you require a specialist opinion or your family doctor has referred you to a specialist, please select this option. There are specialist consultations in all clinical specialties on the MedPerson platform.

Your family doctor will refer you to the appropriate specialist if they feel that a specialist opinion is required.
