Integrating technology into the healthcare field has been underway for a while now with plenty of exercise and diet apps. Reinventing healthcare through technology is far more difficult but possible as one company, HealthSpot, is finding out.
HealthSpot, a pioneer in patient and provider-driven healthcare technology, recently announced its breakthrough with a new telehealth system at CES 2013. The new telehealth system will provide patients with a medical diagnostic technology at any time and from any location.
"We are making it possible to seamlessly deliver advanced healthcare through modern technology," said HealthSpot CEO and founder Steve Cashman. "We are not just hardware; we are not just software; we are a complete integrated network of traditional doctor care and cutting-edge telemedicine. We are healthcare reinvented."
HealthSpot realized the incoherent need for a better online medicine. They realized patients were missing out on specific healthcare needs with online-only conferences, not to mention the lack of knowledge of the person providing the information on the other end of the line.
The new telehealth system developed by HealthSpot will do much more than what telehealth has done up until now. The new system will allow patients to transmit real-time vital signs, images and physical data to their physician. This feature will still allow for patient to doctor face-to-face dialogue and interaction from any location in the world.
Currently, there are 15 states that provide patients with a reimbursement for using telehealth. HealthSpot is also taking the extra steps needed to bring this opportunity to as many people as possible as they build a network of board certified physicians and national healthcare providers to offer this service.
"Trends in healthcare demand innovative solutions to increase access to healthcare services at a cost-effective price. It is simply physically impossible for our country's healthcare system to continue on its current path," said Cashman.
