Intermountain Healthcare deploys Amwell’s new smart TV Carepoint Device

Intermountain Healthcare has deployed Amwell’s new smart TV Carepoint Device across 1,200 of its hospital TVs in nearly 50 locations, transforming them into telehealth endpoints.

Intermountain Healthcare has deployed Amwell’s new smart TV Carepoint Device across 1,200 of its hospital TVs in nearly 50 locations, transforming them into telehealth endpoints.

The new Carepoint device has been designed to further expand integrated telehealth connectivity through the Amwell platform and enables hospitals to turn existing televisions into telehealth endpoints.

This will allow hospitals to scale and simplify access to their telehealth infrastructure by using devices that already exist in patient rooms.

Amwell co-CEO and chairman Ido Schoenberg said: “We believe telehealth has a powerful role to play in the democratisation of healthcare, and in working towards this goal, we are building out our platform to enable the convergence of healthcare experiences across care settings, making it easier for those on the frontlines to see their patients.

“This new Carepoint device demonstrates our mission to connect and enable the key players across the healthcare ecosystem to improve clinical and financial outcomes.  Streamlined, integrated connectivity between patients and informed, trusted providers is central to realising this goal.”

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the new Carepoint device helps hospitals to safely monitor patients.

Additionally, patients need not have to leave their room or have a care team member present and will benefit from connecting with entire care teams across a range of specialties.

Intermountain Healthcare Telehealth Services assistant vice-president Brian Wayling said: “The in-room smart TV and networking enable clinical teams across more than 30 specialties to provide remote care 24/7 in collaboration with the local team, and to interact with patients, family members, and caregivers right in the patient’s room—no matter the access concerns and without any extra effort.”
