swyMed Steps Up to Deliver Hands-Free Telemedicine for Patients and Providers

It’s another pioneering effort from swyMed.

The company announced today that as a Glass Partner, it is deploying its telemedicine solution on Glass Enterprise Edition to deliver hands-free, remote evaluations of patients from anywhere in real time.

The healthcare industry recognizes the enhanced value that can be gained from remote patient evaluations including improved patient outcomes, efficient use of the increasingly limited number of physicians, reduced readmissions and time saved by reducing in-person follow-ups. Collectively these benefits translate into reduced medical costs, improved patient convenience and improved outcomes.

However, the telemedicine market faces a significant barrier to remote video encounters today because the bandwidth needed for real-time telemedicine is inconsistent beyond the four walls of a hospital or clinic, the company tells us, noting that swyMed’s patented software, integrated with its DOT Telemedicine Backpack, overcomes the bandwidth challenge and gives mobile care providers the ability to connect to doctors for real-time video medicine – anywhere, anytime.

“The DOT Telemedicine Backpack is light, easy to use, and delivers unparalleled connectivity in even the most difficult environments,” this morning’s news release explains.
