The human brain is deemed commendable for many different reasons, and yet none deserve the honor as much as its ability evolve and improve at a consistent pace. This progressive streak, on our part, has already got the world to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a major member of the stated group. The reason why technology enjoys such an esteemed stature among people is, by and large, predicated upon its skill-set, which ushered us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look up close for a second, it will become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and consequentially, kickstarted a full-blown tech revolution. Of course, this revolution then went on to scale up the human experience through some outright unique avenues, but even after achieving such a monumental feat, technology will somehow continue to produce the right goods. The same has grown increasingly evident in recent times, and assuming one new healthcare-themed development shakes out just like we envision, it will only make that trend bigger and better moving forward.
GlobalMed, a pioneer in virtual care solutions, has officially announced the expansion of its CostSimplified virtual healthcare rental program, which is designed to serve all those organizations that seek cost-effective and comprehensive telehealth solutions. Before we get into the new features, though, we must try and understand the stated program in its original form. Basically, GlobalMed’s CostSimplified program helps organizations adopt and deliver virtual care services through a practical monthly fee structure. Bringing at your disposal an alternative financial approach, the initiative makes it possible for users to access GlobalMed’s market-leading virtual care stations, connected devices, and telehealth software platform, and it does so without putting them through the challenges of bearing large upfront capital expenditures. Moving on to the expansion in question, it births more of those dedicated telehealth delivery stations and medical devices to ensure a more universal brand of healthcare. Talk about what does that mean on a slightly deeper level, it refers to, for starters, the introduction of a ClinicalAccess Station, an innovative modular design which can be easily configured to accommodate a wide array of examination capabilities, capabilities that can then scale to fit our evolving telehealth needs. Next up, we have ClinicalAccess Station Lite. This one was conceived to ease the space concerns of larger stations, something it does by customizing the picture as per an organization’s specific needs. Then, there is the prospect of a LiteExam Station, where you presumably have the most accessible and affordable desktop telemedicine station to install specialized telehealth capabilities across any school, office, or other organization. Joining the same is a Transportable Exam Station. Like its name might suggest, the said station packs together a fully mobile exam station, along with a military-grade tablet and impact-resistant case to safely store a variety of medical devices. Interestingly enough, the wider development also conceives for you a transportable exam backpack, which offers optimal flexibility and mobility, while simultaneously ensuring healthcare providers can deliver telehealth services virtually anywhere. From an overall standpoint, GlobalMed’s CostSimplified program will include a choice of these telehealth stations and a variety of connected medical devices, including TotalExam® 3.2 exam camera with otoscope attachment, TotalExam® Lite exam camera and otoscope, USB stethoscope, TotalVitals®, TotalECG®, Spirometer, and ClearProbe®. It will also empower you to access the powerful eNcounter® telehealth software platform, which facilitates customized workflows, multi-way video consultations, secure cloud-based storage, and multi-way video, audio, and chat appointments through ePrescribe capabilities.
“The goal of virtual healthcare delivery is to make healthcare more accessible for both patients and providers. Our CostSimplified program enables providers with limited budgets to start or expand their virtual health programs quickly,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, founder and CEO of GlobalMed.
Having discussed the technical features, we now must turn our attention towards the kind of benefits that the program will likely achieve on our behalf. This particular list begins from the all-important option to start small, meaning you can initiate a telehealth program with a minimal budget and an affordable monthly payment, thus offering a viable pathway to all those who don’t have a large capital to invest. Complimenting it is an agile protocol through which you can get your program up and running. Such a feature markedly eliminates the need for anyone to allot an extended period of time towards finishing the capital approval process. Hold on, there is more, considering we still haven’t acknowledged the program’s knowhow in facilitating proper training. Such a mechanism should go a long way when the agenda is to prepare the user for leveraging their telemedicine station and medical device in the most optimal manner. To achieve the same, GlobalMed will also provide you with a comprehensive learning management system. Still, if you find yourself facing an issue, the program will have a support team ready to remotely handle the technical management of equipment and software, including upgrades.
Among other details, we can acknowledge the initiative’s pledge to put forth a fully integrated solution, which lets you receive all your virtual care technology from a single vendor to avoid diluting the quality by banking upon multiple sources. Finally, the CostSimplified program is also mindful to fetch you enough room for scalability, meaning you can expand rental fleets and capabilities as patient demand grows.
Founded in 2002, GlobalMed’s rise stems from the way it has been able to design, manufacture, and eventually deploy integrated software and solutions that remove technology-centric barriers from patient care. The company’s efforts, so far, have included providing data capturing tools to deliver evidence-based treatment, and for someone looking to self-brand their virtual offerings, those efforts have also brought a white-labeled version of Global Med’s services. Solidifying the compan’’s credentials even further is the fact that it has already completed more than 15 million consults in over 55 countries. In case that itself isn’t enough, then we must mention how the company is a trusted provider Department of Veterans Affairs, Defense Health Agency, as well as the White House. Not just that, it also boasts Authority to Operate (ATO) on U.S. Department of Defense networks with the highest level of security, supporting a patient at any given point across the continuum of care.
