In 1997 our founder, Dr. Charles Smith, decided it was time to change the pattern of healthcare and empower patients to take more control of their health. Instead of lining up patients for the convenience of the physician, Dr. Smith decided to line up physicians for the convenience of the patient. Thus began eDocAmerica.

- eDocAmerica provides clients and users health information from reliable research from licensed healthcare professionals. eDocAmerica provides health information content to the general public through its weekly Health Tips, and Decision Support to individuals through its relationships with various groups or corporations.
- Health Information Content is derived from research that is in response to a general or specific question.
- Decision Support or Assistance differs from Health Information Content, since it is addressed to a specific user for their personal health management. It provides an individual user with relevant data, suggested questions they may wish to consider asking their healthcare provider and/or ones they may use in deciding what action(s) they may need to take.
