While the impetus for current telemedicine technology and capabilities originated with telestroke, the natural expansion to other specialties is now in progress. As telestroke has matured, the conditions that drove functional development to overcome time, distance, and the availability of specialist resources are readily recognizable in many specialty areas beyond stroke treatment. The significant improvement in patient outcomes and new revenue opportunities support this expansion.
The ability of telemedicine to produce better outcomes is powerful. With a projected shortfall in physician specialists through the next decade, REACH telemedicine helps to solve this problem while providing efficient and cost effective quality care. Providers also gain from additional revenue opportunities.
The intelligence of the REACH system lies in the proprietary software platform that has been designed to run multidiscipline acute care telemedicine applications. REACH can provide hospitals with interface customizations and additional physician specialty applications with no service interruption or extensive staff retraining.
The REACH platform is future ready.
