HealthSpot™ Launches Telehealth System at CES

Merging technology with patient care, HealthSpot™ Station is a walk-in kiosk that will be located in everyday locations like pharmacies and grocery stores for patient diagnosis and medical treatment

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CES Booth Grand Lobby-3 -- HealthSpot, a pioneer in patient and provider driven healthcare technology, has developed a cutting-edge telehealth system that provides high-quality medical diagnostic technology to patients anytime, anywhere. Throughout the 2013 International CES, HealthSpot will give attendees a first look at the HealthSpot™ Station, a private, walk-in kiosk that provides patients access to diagnosis and treatment by board-certified doctors, via high-definition videoconferencing and interactive digital medical devices.

"HealthSpot has built a solution that merges technology with convenience in patient care. Our innovation utilizes today's technology combined with modern medicine to diagnose and treat patients in ways that are affordable, convenient and effective," said HealthSpot CEO and founder Steve Cashman. "With deployment coming in 2013, patients will easily be able to locate their closest HealthSpot Station for quick diagnosis and care, before their ailment becomes worse."

The HealthSpot™ Station is an 8-foot by 5-foot, ADA accessible, fully enclosed kiosk furnished with a rolling chair, a desktop with a touch screen, audio system, and a two-way high-definition video screen. The HealthSpot Station provides a true-to-life audio and video solution that brings patients a face-to-face experience with a board-certified doctor who is miles away. Each station is supported by an accredited medical assistant who can help the patient as needed.

Inside the HealthSpot Station, a scale built into the floor records weight. With the push of a button, the doctor can unlock small cabinets that hold high-tech, digital medical devices that transmit information, audio video and pictures back to them through a secured connectivity FDA Medical Device Data System. A removable cuff captures blood pressure. An instant-read thermometer is behind one door. A dermascope provides a magnified view of rashes and skin conditions, as well as the back of your throat or eye. If you have an earache, the doctor asks you to slip the otoscope into your ear as you both look at a high-resolution image of the inside of your ear on the screen in front of you. The stethoscope transmits heart, lung and bowel sounds digitally. The pulse oximeter is used to take the patient's pulse and monitor oxygen saturation of the blood.

The doctor is easily able to review medical information with the patient, discuss symptoms, diagnose and treat, and recommend follow-up care as appropriate. The doctor can capture, save and even annotate the images with notes and share with the patient's primary care physician, specialist, or for the patient's own records. The HealthSpot Station, which complies with the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) privacy and security requirements, will automatically create a complete electronic medical record of each visit, supporting continuity of care and collaboration among the healthcare providers.

Targeted locations include retail sites such as grocery stores; hospital systems such as urgent care facilities, emergency rooms, doctor's offices, specialist offices (dermatology, ENT [ear, nose, throat]); large businesses; rural areas; as well as military locations, college campuses, nursing homes, and more.

With pilots currently in place in Ohio, HealthSpot Stations will begin rolling out in select locations in Q1 2013.
