IoT Technology Enables the Care Continuum – From Hospital to ReHab to Home
Dictum Health, innovators in clinical end-to-end telehealth systems, chose AT&T* to provide mobile connectivity for its Virtual Exam Room (VER) product line, providing clinical care almost anytime and anywhere.
Here is what Dictum Health has to say regarding its VER solutions:
- Bring specialists to patients in remote/rural clinics.
- Provide healthcare in the field - even in disaster relief conditions.
- Facilitates patient monitoring, care, and recovery from home.
Physicians can securely conduct virtual exams and monitor the most at-risk patients without sacrificing personalized care – in almost any location.
The HIPAA compliant VER provides videoconferencing between patient and care team. Clinicians have access to near real-time vital signs and medical images. Expanding access to specialist care, this face-to-face exam can help lower emergency room visits and hospital stays – reducing overall healthcare costs.
An AT&T SIM and AT&T Control Center enables Dictum Health Care Central with VER to connect patient to physician. According to Dictum, the IDM100 Medical Tablet securely sends patient diagnostic and health information to Care Central. Care Central’s web enabled clinician portal and cloud service, provide a seamless gateway to patient health information delivering clinical remote care. The cyber-secure IDM100 Integrated Medical Tablet is FDA class II cleared for use by clinicians and home use from neonate to adult.
“With rural hospital closures, we have seen a major decline in healthcare access, putting the burden on emergency transport,” said Dr. Jonathan Baugh, chief medical officer and co-founder of Remote Health Solutions. “From my office, I am able to conduct complete medical exams on remote patients, allowing me to prioritize critical condition patients for hospital transport and to assess non-critical patients, avoiding unnecessary trips to the hospital.”
“Our VER-products are expanding access to clinical and specialist care outside the hospital walls, which is only made possible by the AT&T robust, high-speed connectivity” said Elizabeth Keate, VP of Product Management at Dictum Health. “Virtually connecting physicians to patients using our VER is redefining the house call by providing actionable clinical patient data to the most at-risk patients including those in rural and remote communities.”
Dictum Health will demo a VER at HIMSS March 6 – 8 in the AT&T booth #5832.
