PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As telehealth becomes part of the new normal, Nautilus Medical Technologies has just announced the first all-in-one set top telehealth system to work with any existing TV or monitor. Whether at home, hospital, or office, an existing television or monitor can become a telehealth station with Nautilus Medical's TeleRay Peak or Summit models. Telehealth is quickly becoming the standard of care in the US as clinical telehealth visits skyrocket over 400% in 2020 alone. The fastest growth is among the age group 50-80, moving from 4% to over 30% of consultations during COVID.
The TeleRay systems are self-contained units with only a power plug and video connection to the TV or monitor. Once connected to the internet, the user may conduct a telehealth visit with their provider on the TeleRay network or other telehealth providers. Cody Neville, CTO of Nautilus Medical, said "This is a game changer for people who do not have, or want, to set up a computer or other device for telehealth. Using the screens already in homes, hospitals and limitless other care sites provides total convenience and safety during the pandemic." Mr. Neville explained a feature called 'Auto Answer' that allows a provider to call a room or patient and appear on the screen without the patient having to do anything.
As telehealth continues to grow at a rapid pace, technologies that provide ease of access will be critical to success in treating patients virtually. More than 80% of primary care visits do not require physical contact. There are many applications for these set top systems which have capabilities beyond face to face consultation. TeleRay embeds software on the units to perform functions such as call answering, voice command, zoom, pan, add a friend or family member to a call, and more. Timothy Kelley, CEO of Nautilus Medical, said "We build software and integrations to solve real-world problems. These units will provide access to many homes and care site rooms that could not be achieved previously due to the quality of sound, picture clarity, and ease of set up." He added "We are proud of our team for delivering such a valuable system for a low price with such great technology."
TeleRay Summit and Peak systems are available on Amazon, TeleRay.com and directly from Nautilus Medical Technologies. Pricing ranges from $495 to $795 for a limited time.
