Intelligent Enterprise Hotspot Helps Make Reliable, Real-Time, Virtual Visits with Doctors Possible from Emergency Vehicles, Telemedicine Carts and Remote Clinics
Lexington, MA – February 20, 2018 – swyMed, a provider of exceptional-quality video telemedicine solutions, today unveiled the DOT Mini, an intelligent enterprise hotspot that provides unmatched connectivity, allowing care providers to conduct video telemedicine encounters in areas that previously could not be served due to bandwidth limitations. The DOT Mini can be easily mounted into an emergency vehicle, telemedicine cart or building, and while designed for the rigors of critical transports (i.e. mobile telestroke/mobile stroke unit), schools and rural clinics, it can be used in any facility that is lacking the connectivity infrastructure to conduct reliable video visits.
With countless rural regions across the country lacking a sufficient broadband Internet connection and urban environments struggling with network congestion, many existing telemedicine solutions are unable to function outside of a hospital or clinic. In these areas, it is impossible to deliver consistent virtual care due to lack of connectivity. swyMed’s DOT Mini, powered by the company’s patented software, overcomes these problems, providing the connectivity backbone needed to ensure a dependable video and audio connection, even in geographies where networks are challenged and bandwidth is limited.
Designed to be compatible with existing technologies, the DOT Mini is equipped with antennas, redundant dual-modem connection, battery and swyMed’s software, including its patented transport protocol. swyMed’s software also provides unmatched interoperability with existing EMRs, PACS and certified third-party diagnostic equipment such as stethoscopes, cameras and ultrasound.
“At swyMed, our specific focus is on mobile telemedicine and providing the technology needed to conduct reliable video encounters where they are needed most,” said Stefano Migliorisi, CEO of swyMed. “We design our solutions for the most difficult situations imaginable, and the addition of the DOT Mini to our existing product offerings, including the DOT Telemedicine Backpack, further extends the reach and potential impact of telemedicine. Our patented software powering these products makes virtual care a reality in places where it has never before been possible.”
The technology allows providers to consult, assess and monitor patients while out in the field and facilitate health programs in locations with poor connectivity, preventing unnecessary emergency transports and improving access to care. Before video telemedicine will be trusted for mainstream care delivery, today’s connectivity and reliability challenges must be resolved. The DOT Mini provides the assurance to care providers that the days of spotty or lost connections are over, and the way is clear to deliver services via telemedicine, realizing improved patient care and outcomes, despite limited available resources.
Time-critical mobile telemedicine consults require simple, fast and highly reliable connections. While many solutions fail beyond the hard-wired four walls of a hospital, swyMed’s patented technology expands telemedicine care to places where it was previously unavailable, powering truly mobile exceptional-quality live video encounters, even at the lowest bandwidths. swyMed’s proven, reliable, easy-to-use solutions, including the DOT Telemedicine Backpack and the DOT Mini, give care providers the ability to connect to doctors for real-time video telemedicine — anytime, anywhere. swyMed’s innovative technology is used by providers for Remote Patient Evaluation (RPE), home health, EMS/critical transport, mobile telestroke and Mobile Integrated Healthcare (MIH) programs in thousands of encounters throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
