HealthSpot, a pioneer in patient and provider driven healthcare technology, has developed a cutting-edge telehealth system that provides high-quality medical diagnostics to patients anytime, anywhere. At CES Unveiled New York, HealthSpot will give attendees a first look from the provider's view at the HealthSpot Station, a private, walk-in kiosk that affords acute care patients live access to board-certified doctors, via high-definition videoconferencing and interactive digital medical devices.
Steve Cashman, HealthSpot's CEO, wants what all of us want when it comes to healthcare: a visit with a doctor that is convenient and quick, and devoid of downtime and hassle. "Our mission at HealthSpot is to work with top healthcare providers to extend affordable, timely and convenient access to healthcare within every community across America," stated Cashman.
The Association of American Medical Colleges forecasts a 130,000 physician shortage by 2025. "Trends in healthcare demand innovative solutions to increase access to healthcare services at a cost-effective price; it is simply physically impossible for our country's healthcare system to continue on its current path," said Cashman.
The Department of Health and Human Services estimates that by 2014, 40 million Americans will be newly insured under the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its individual mandate. As the beleaguered healthcare system continues to struggle under the strain of too many patients, more patients seeking care and a growing physician shortage, HealthSpot has developed an unprecedented solution for providing high-quality, interactive healthcare that diverts patients from lengthy or inaccessible in-office appointments, Urgent Care centers and emergency room visits while maintaining live doctor patient communication at convenient locations nationwide. HealthSpot Station is also an effective alternative for quick and easy preventative care before a condition becomes serious or requires a hospital stay.
Physicians deserve more efficient uses of their time and resources. Patients demand the best care at an affordable price. The HealthSpot Station was developed in partnership with physicians to give the medical community the telehealth tools they need to create an accessible care network that reaches the greatest number of patients as possible while maintaining the level of quality care people expect.
HealthSpot's breakthroughs in technology and connectivity empower healthcare professionals to offer telehealth solutions that drive healthcare costs down while simultaneously increasing patient access to immediate, real-time healthcare when and where it's needed.
HealthSpot is poised to redefine the future of healthcare for clinics, hospitals, doctor's offices and pharmacies; patients will be able to visit the closest HealthSpot Station to obtain a high quality and convenient visit with a board-certified doctor, even if they are uninsured. Targeted locations include retail sites such as grocery stores; hospital systems such as urgent care facilities, emergency rooms, doctor's offices, specialist offices (dermatology, ENT (ear, nose, throat); large businesses where employees could walk down the hall and see a doctor in 20 minutes instead of taking half a day off work; rural areas to increase access for patients who have to drive long distances for follow-up care; as well as military, college campuses, nursing homes, and remote villages in developing countries; and more.
Cashman concluded, "Our goal at HealthSpot is to extend the doctor's reach of hand as patients enjoy the reach of care."
