April 10, 2013 — InTouch Health has announced the launch of the ControlStation (CS) App for iPad, making it easier for doctors to provide real-time, acute telemedicine consults with patients. From a single interface, doctors can now connect from iPads and iPad Minis to provide patient care through any of the Company’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared, purpose-built remote presence devices. An interface designed specifically for acute care telemedicine, it integrates clinical patient data and medical radiology imaging tools through a single user login.
“Through one pane of glass, doctors now have at their fingertips all the tools — clinical patient data, medical imaging and immersive remote presence — to provide complete patient consults from anywhere,” said Yulun Wang, Ph.D., chairman and CEO of InTouch Health
“The CS App takes telemedicine to a new level, and it is great to free myself from my laptop. It is so simple to use and highly effective for remote doctor-to-patient consults,” said Nicholas J. Okon, D.O., CEO, Northwest Stroke Solutions and medical director of Providence TeleStroke Network, Ore. “It addresses a large adoption barrier by providing doctors with a portable solution and intuitive interface enabling them to provide care from just about anywhere. Telemedicine should be this easy.”
“We are pleased to have participated in the clinical validation of the CS App for iPad. I could see the overwhelming enthusiasm from the doctors across the various medical specialties for which we provide remote services to our member hospitals,” said Jim Roxburgh, director of the Dignity Health Mercy Telehealth Network. “I can easily envision providing this enabling capability for the more than 100 doctors who routinely provide call coverage for our hospitals.”
