BOSTON, Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- American Well®, a leading U.S. telehealth platform, today announced the upcoming launch of the American Well 250 Cart, the most comprehensive cart to connect you to the American Well provider network, giving you access to thousands of specialists on demand. This is also the first integrated telemedicine device brought to market by American Well, after merging with Avizia.
"We have passed the point-of-no-return when it comes to health systems embracing telehealth as a core competency," said Roy Schoenberg MD, CEO of American Well. "Focus is quickly shifting from the thrill of instant video connectivity to the recognizing the operational efficiencies that come from the redistribution of clinical skills across buildings, facilities and networks. The new 250 cart allows for the consumption of a mix of services – from both clinicians inside the institution, as well as clinicians from affiliated networks across the country – at any point-of-care. This is the first time health systems will be able to digitally load-balance their clinical services, all through a single device."
The American Well 250 Telemedicine Cart is an FDA Class I registered medical device that enables access to providers either via the Cloud, beyond a health system's current network, or the health system's own providers. Clinicians can start a telehealth consult with one click and integrate peripheral images seamlessly into the telehealth consult. The pan-tilt zoom camera option on the 250 cart delivers optimal conditions for remote providers to better diagnose and recommend treatment for the patient; and embedded remote monitoring tools ensure the cart is ready for use at all times.
Key use cases include:
"In addition to unparalleled access to providers, the 250 cart takes telehealth devices to a whole new level with enhanced performance and augmented security," said Cory Costley, SVP of Devices at American Well. "This is a true end-to-end system that has been purpose-built for telehealth."
The 250 cart joins the Cisco-Based 760 Cart, which American Well launched In January, also focused on acute care use cases.
