In 2009, Dr. Joe Pearson co founded Xstreme MD. What started out as a telecommunications system, in order to provide virtual on-site medical support for remote work environments, has evolved into a complete on-site healthcare provider service.
“We’ve significantly evolved from just being a telemedicine provider to a complete remote health care provider, in that we’ve started putting mobile clinics out throughout the country,” said Pearson.
This week, three of those mobile units will head to the Houston area to help primary care offices and hospitals that were forced to shut down due to the affects of Hurricane Harvey.
“We’re mobilizing clinics that are completely self contained with power, septic systems, and fresh water,” said Pearson.
After an experience in New Orleans helping victims of Hurricane Katrina, Pearson said he’s planning for the worst case scenario in order to make sure all bases are covered on Xstreme MD’s end.
“We expect the worst. We expect there to be lines of people. We expect all resources, all hands on deck and that way we’re prepared,” Said Pearson.
Pearson thinks the main purpose of Xstreme MD will be to provide the existing providers with a space to do their job.
