Pass My Physical, a technology company providing cloud-based solutions for the trucking industry, launched a new platform that streamlines and eliminates most delays associated with the Department of Transportation medical examination process.
The platform consists of a mobile application for Commercial Motor Vehicle drivers and a web application for motor carriers. The mobile application makes it easy for CMV drivers to fulfill their Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration medical exam requirements. Once their information is added into the mobile application, it populates the exam form, which can be printed off at any time. CMV drivers not only understand what they need for their exam, but they’re also provided with regular reminders as well as solutions such as personalized medical clearance letters to ensure they have everything ready prior to the exam. Drivers have the ability to use their mobile app independently or interactively with their motor carrier’s web application.
Through the web application, motor carriers are not only able to track the exam status for all of their drivers, but receive notifications when drivers update their certification status; when a Medical Examiner certificate is about to expire; and whenever changes in medical regulation or guidance occur.
“The nature of DOT physical exams has historically led to delays in medical certification due to exam complexity and ambiguity,” said Dr. David Thorpe, President of PMP. “By streamlining the exam process, the platform eliminates most delays and helps: keep freight moving with more medically qualified drivers; ensure new hires arrive at a terminal prepared to take the medical exam; and reduce medical certification costs by eliminating the need to retake the exam.”
