Visionflex rolling out unattended access to telehealth units for remote examinations
Telehealth hardware solution specialist Visionflex is deploying its telehealth units with new “unattended access” capability, allowing patients to present to a clinic after hours and contact a remote doctor by video link.
The technology is being deployed as a standard feature on Visionflex’s ProEX units to remote communities, truck stops and cattle stations around the country, following a successful pilot in Wanaaring in far western NSW in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctor Service NSW.
The unattended access solution allows patients who present after hours when the local nurse is off duty to press an intercom button. Remote doctors based in Broken Hill can view the patient through the door camera, and open the door and the telehealth cabinet remotely.
