MatchMD is fast

MatchMD is efficient
• Immediate access to MatchMD requires nothing more than maintaining an active browser window on your computer screen.
• With an appropriate logon/password combination, on-call schedules can be modified from any computer or smartphone with internet access. Schedule changes appear immediately.
• When a recipient is out of range, MatchMD will repeatedly transmit the sent message. Delivery occurs automatically once the recipient’s device is back in range.
MatchMD documents and archives all messages
• All MatchMD messages are time stamped. This includes when the message was sent, when it was delivered to the paging device and when the reply was received.
• Past messages are archived and easily retrieved should later review be necessary.
MatchMD can provide electronic signature authentication
