“AMD's telemedicine technology combined with US Telehealth services allow the Department to have up to 15 patients be seen by a specialized physician in only a four hour block of time,” commented Dr. Raman Singh, Medical and Mental Health Director at the Louisiana Department of Corrections. “The telemedicine technology improves access to care by providing the opportunity to have a meaningful patient encounter. All the medical images and assessment data is right there in one place and can be easily viewed by both parties. This solution is good for public safety and reduces costs by allowing some of the needed medical care to be delivered without the need to transport the patients outside of our facilities,” added Dr. Singh.
