This looks to be an All-In-One device... scans, records...blood pressure...images, video exam camera, blood tests, patient records....as I read this, there needs to be 2 stations, one at origin and one at the receiving end...could open up some new doors for the retail clinics.  I did a revisit the other day to a CVS store with a clinic and things were not too busy the day I went by, but they did do a tremendous business during flu season and we actually had a discussion about personalized medicine that day and the upcoming future in health care.  One other item of mention is that very same day I heard the clinics advertised on the radio with "free cholesterol checks" for the entire month of April, now that could be only for this area, but that was the first radio advertising I had heard...one more way to drive business to their doors of the retail clinics....BD 

Telemedicus has begun providing DREAMS technology for educational purposes to My Healthy Access Clinics located in Wal-Mart Supercenters. image

All of the patients records are transmitted to the physicians workstation where they can be digitally exported to an existing electronic medical records system. All transmissions between the two workstations are encrypted to meet HIPAA requirements.

My Healthy Access operates non-emergency wellness clinics located in Houston area Wal-Mart stores. The primary focus of these clinics is to provide immediate medical  diagnosis and treatment for minor illnesses such as colds, flu, strep throats, sinusitis, minor injuries and infections as well as administering preventative vaccinations. The price is reasonable and as no appointment is necessary, most patients can be in and out in 20 minutes. MHA currently leases space in six Houston area Wal-Mart Supercenters for its My Healthy Access branded clinics.

image Telemedicus’ Disaster Relief and Emergency Medical Services DREAMS technology turns practically any ambulance, clinic or medical transportation vehicle into a mobile trauma center or Telehealth location. Through the Intelligent Communications Manager (ICM), the doctor is able to provide treatment immediately through the medical technician because the doctor can see the patient and diagnostic data through the Telemedicus system.

Real-time scans from an ultrasound imager and stat blood test results from an Abbott iStat blood analyzer attached to the remote workstation are also displayed in real-time at the physicians workstation.
