{tag_name_nolink}

Ricardo Febry is a certified Internal Medicine specialist with over 25 years of experience in ambulatory, emergency, inpatient, critical care and geriatrics. He graduated from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine and subsequently completed post-graduate training in Internal Medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine-affiliated hospitals in New Orleans. He is Chief Medical Officer of Internal Medicine Consultants, LLC., a medical group dedicated to serving elderly home-bound patients, hospitals and long-term care communities. He founded TeleMD360, LLC to help transform disease management by connecting secure videoconferencing and remote physiologic monitoring technologies with the prescriptive authority of experienced healthcare professionals to provide safer, cheaper and more effective care. His interest in end-of-life planning and hospice care began in 2001 as the Medical Director for Hospice of Greater New Orleans. 

Dr. Febry established inpatient hospice programs at Doctors Hospital of Jefferson in 2002, St Theresa Medical Complex in 2010, East Jefferson General Hospital in 2014 and New Orleans East Hospital in 2016. He co-founded Hospice Associates of New Orleans LLC in 2004 and became its sole member in 2014 to pursue his vision of replacing the home health agency-centered model of delivering hospice care services with the more patient-centered medical practice model. To that end, he has lead development of our in-house telemedicine program to facilitate prompt access by home-bound patients to our nurse practitioners and physicians on-demand. With his leadership, Hospice Associates patients and field nurses now have unprecedented, around-the-clock, access to consultation with our team of experienced nurse practitioners and physicians.

Dr. Febry fell in love with New Orleans the day he arrived to interview for his residency training. He spends his little free time with family, devising new ways to apply computer science to medical practice workflows, cooking Caribbean food and tinkering in his garage.
