New Wall Mount System Improves Telemedicine Workflow
AMD Global Telemedicine Announces the Patient Assessment Terminal
Chelmsford, MA, May 9, 2016–– AMD Global Telemedicine Inc. (AMD), the world’s leading supplier of clinical Telemedicine Encounter Management Solutions (TEMS)®, introduces PAT, the Patient Assessment Terminal. PAT is a fully integrated telemedicine wall mount system developed to improve workflow, while reducing the telemedicine workstation footprint within an exam room.
PAT is the industry's first wall station that allows you to have the telemedicine devices connected continuously. Having the medical devices remain connected significantly reduces the steps required for a patient encounter and facilitates the acceptance of new technology among staff. Examples of connected medical devices include the new Welch Allyn Connex Spot VSM, Multipurpose Examination Cameras, Digital Stethoscopes, Ultrasound Probes, and more. Exam rooms where space is limited, such as rural clinics, pharmacies, or clinic kiosks are the perfect fit for PAT.
With the dual workstation, clinicians can document and chart patients as needed at the computer station positioned off to one side while the patient and provider continue their video consultation. The lower cabinet folds down creating an additional work surface area to rest medical devices during the exam. This patient assessment terminal is also customizable and can be configured with hardware-based codecs or software-based video conferencing solutions.
PAT is part of the Clinical Assist wall mount series, a natural extension of AMD's Clinical Assist telemedicine cart. "As more healthcare organizations are setting up telemedicine stations in every room, it is a natural fit that customers are looking for a telemedicine system that can be a permanent station ,"commented Eric Bacon, VP of Finance and Operations at AMD Global Telemedicine. "Healthcare practitioners want telemedicine devices to be connected and ready for a patient exam and PAT eliminates the additional time involved with 'plug and play' scenarios," added Bacon.
AMD Global Telemedicine will unveil PAT in their booth (#902) at the American Telemedicine Association Conference in Minneapolis, MN on May 15-17, 2016. Attendees are invited to stop by and get a demonstration of a live clinical telemedicine encounter with PAT. For a complimentary exhibit hall pass to attend ATA, click here.
