July 9, 2009 – InTouch Health today released Multi-Presence, a new software that expands the company’s remote presence telehealth offering, enabling multiple physicians at different locations to simultaneously access the same consultation for collaboration on patient care anywhere.
InTouch Health remote presence solutions allow physicians to perform comprehensive, real-time consults with hospital patients. Within one network and through a single interface, physicians can access a family of Remote Presence devices to provide care and expert collaboration across the entire continuum of healthcare, all delivered through a single backbone of SureConnect connectivity services and support, the company said.
“The addition of Multi-Presence capability to Remote Presence results in a formidable combination for remote consults,” said Paul M. Vespa, M.D., professor of neurosurgery, neurology, and director of neurocritical care at the University of California Los Angeles Medical Center. “Healthcare today is a collaborative effort. This new capability will allow teams of physicians to collaborate in real-time in the care of a single patient.”
The company currently has more than 200 customers using remote presence to deliver specialty care services such as stroke, cardiology, trauma, pediatrics, neonatology, psychiatry, translation services, critical care coverage, patient rounds and surgical/procedural mentoring.
