The 2018 edition of the Florida International Medical Expo (FIME)took place in Orlando from July 17th to 19th. Among the most interesting products and solutions displayed at the United States’ biggest medical fair, we picked Equatel Health, a centralized e-health management system developed by the firm of the same name.
With this robust telemedicine system, remote health consultations and diagnoses can be offered to patients even in the most remote locations. Patients can access the services using Equatel Touch (an Android-based device) or through public access kiosks. Personal SIM cards or smart cards ensure a secure and personalized user experience.
Through Equatel Health, patients can communicate with healthcare professionals using the built-in camera in order to schedule appointments and health check-ups; have vital signs such as temperature, blood pressure and heart rate checked; undergo eyesight and hearing tests; access various educational tutorials on pregnancy, first aid and nutrition; be notified of regional health alerts as they happen and receive prescriptions and purchase certified medication.
Medical professionals can securely access the EHR platform and all remote e-health services directly from their personal computer, tablet or Equatel Touch device. All the information is logged and stored in the cloud for continued medical management. The platform also enables public health services or NGOs to better organize data, track statistics and monitor budgeting.
