USA: Tely Labs - maker of the award-winning telyHD video calling system - announced telyMed MTS-100 Mobile Station, an integrated telemedicine workstation designed to meet the needs of healthcare providers for security, mobility and ease of use at the point of care, at less than half the cost of existing mobile telemedicine carts.
Healthcare reforms and accelerating demand for expensive specialist treatment are pressuring hospitals and clinics to find more cost-effective ways of delivering care while controlling costs. This has stimulated a heightened interest in telemedicine solutions. Until now, the substantial expense and complexity of videoconferencing equipment have prevented pervasive adoption.
The battery-powered, Wi-Fi-enabled telyMed MTS-100 Mobile Station is a plug-and-play system that eliminates complicated set up procedures, integrating the telyHD video calling appliance, telyMed software service and an HDTV screen into a custom-designed workstation. The high-definition video collaboration system provides valuable functionality for medical use cases ranging from remote patient consultations to virtual care teams, providing enhanced access to examination and treatment at unprecedented value.
“A widening digital divide has prevented many under-funded healthcare facilities from accessing the technology that would help them offer a broader range of care to more people. Affordable telemedicine can change that scenario,” said Sreekanth Ravi, president and CEO of Tely Labs. “telyMed and the telyMed MTS-100 Mobile Station are great examples of technology innovations that make a real difference to patients, medical professionals, and healthcare facilities by increasing access to specialist care from any facility.”
