Dictum Health, a US-based innovator in clinical end-to-end telehealth systems, has selected AT&T to deliver mobile connectivity for its virtual exam room (VER) product line that will allow the company to offer clinical care round the clock.

Dictum Health’s VER solution provides specialists to patients in remote/rural clinicsand supports patient monitoring, care, and recovery from home.

Dictum Healthproduct management vice-president Elizabeth Keate said: “Our VER-products are expanding access to clinical and specialist care outside the hospital walls, which is only made possible by the AT&T robust, high-speed connectivity.

“Virtually connecting physicians to patients using our VER is redefining the house call by providing actionable clinical patient data to the most at-risk patients including those in rural and remote communities.”

The VER, which is HIPAA-compliant, provides video conferencing between patient and care team while enabling clinicians to access near real-time vital signs and medical images.

Additionally, the IoT technology enables physicians to carry out virtual exams and monitor the most at-risk patients.

Dictum Health stated that the new face-to-face exam can reduce emergency room visits and hospital stays, thereby decreasing overall healthcare costs.

An AT&T SIM and AT&T Control Center allows Dictum Health Care Central with VER to connect patient to physician.

The IDM100 Medical Tablet sends patient diagnostic and health information to Care Central, whose web enabled clinician portal and cloud service, provides a gateway to patient health information delivering clinical remote care, according to Dictum.
