Zeriscope Launches Mobile Telemedicine Exam Kit


Zeriscope announces the launch of its portable and cost-effective Mobile Telemedicine Exam Kit, a simple and easy-to-adopt hardware and software tool that combines live video and data streaming technology with remote patient care.

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, supporting the effort to prevent costly or avoidable emergency room visits or hospital readmissions.

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."

Telemedicine tools have been in place for years, but adoption has been slow due to high upfront costs, implementation challenges and regulatory issues. The Zeriscope Mobile Telemedicine Exam Kit addresses these obstacles through its simple design and low total cost of ownership.
