The kit is described as being a “simple and easy-to-adopt hardware and software tool that combines live video and data streaming technology with remote patient care.”
As for the kit’s contents, here’s what we can tell you.
The Mobile Telemedicine Exam Kit contains a ruggedized tablet, keyboard and an assortment of exam sensors including blood pressure monitor, a high definition Bluetooth stethoscope, pulse oximeter, 4-lead ECG, otoscope, exam/wound camera and other peripherals as customized for each customer’s requirements. The kit fits neatly into a lightweight bag and is the most compact, portable video-enabled exam kit available for healthcare professionals.
Home or remotely located healthcare providers such as Home Health nurse professionals can conduct thorough exam procedures while linking live with a remotely located medical expert or physician.
Additionally, we’re told that the video feed from the tablet or exam camera connects live to the physician via a HIPAA compliant cloud-based platform developed by Zeriscope, allowing healthcare professionals to bring the clinic to the patient in real-time.
“Many telemedicine systems require big investments and smooth floors in a medical facility,” says Dr. Robert Adams, a neurologist at the Medical University of South Carolina, and a leader of their tele-stroke network. “The low-cost, portable Zeriscope system opens up a new universe of applications across numerous healthcare models and practices.”
