Once inside the clinic, visitors can follow the workflow with next-generation data capture technology-from the patient intake through to diagnosis. Patient vital signs are recorded at various points in the workflow, and application-specific medical camera systems are used to gather patient information in the form of still image, video and audio. Mobile applications via Bluetooth, iPhone and iPad highlight the latest in complete medical image access and provider mobility. The patient can see and speak to physicians via a video conference unit which provides face-to-face interaction.

“Medweb is excited to showcase the possibilities of a modern Telemedicine Clinic to bring healthcare to those in need,” says Pete Killcommons, President and CEO of Medweb. “We’ll demonstrate the ability to create a workable clinic within hours of a natural disaster or military installation. Along with our infrastructure and Telemedicine peripheral partners, the Medweb/HP Telemedicine Clinic will provide a highly interactive and educational experience for all attendees.”

Reporting services and various diagnostic delivery solutions will be on display to from a myriad of modalities and the final workflow on display is indicative of best practices in the implementation and execution of a Telemedicine Clinic. The clinic will also address the special needs of rural midwives via an assortment of aids, showcase the ability to process images harnessing a car-mounted solar panel, and demonstrate patient security and privacy for regulatory compliance, such as HIPAA, using the highest forms of encryption.
