TEL AVIV, Israel, April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- eWaveMD, a leading provider of software solutions for the healthcare industry, will unveil its new eHealth platform at Med-e-Tel, the official event of the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth. Med-e-Tel will take place between April 6-8, in Luxembourg.
eWaveMD's new eHealth platform, Virtual Medical Consultation(TM) (VMC) is a unique combination of cloud-based software, a comprehensive EHR, a dedicated hardware and medical devices. VMC deploys innovative medical technologies to transmit medical information from remote locations to central clinics and hospitals. The platform enables the performance of medical consultations between caregivers and patients located in rural areas. And this is done using available telecommunication infrastructures.
VMC brings modern healthcare services to places where it was not previously available, at a fraction of the cost of the traditional face-to-face medical encounter model. VMC can be utilized in rural clinics to provide patients with direct access to primary care physicians. Furthermore, nursing homes and small hospitals have access to specialists to assist the local care providers.
Additional benefits include increased cost efficiency, reduced transportation expenses, improved patient access to specialists, improved quality of care, etc.
eWaveMD personnel will present case studies of projects that are fully based on the new platform.
"In spite of the major urbanization trends over the last century, and the effects of globalization, there are approximately 3.4 billion people living in rural areas throughout the world. It is quite obvious that, no matter what their socio-economic status, medical care cannot effectively be provided to remote rural communities," says Oren Shuster, eWaveMD CEO.
"To improve the quality of medical care being delivered in rural areas, eWaveMD has developed a comprehensive array of eHealth services that ensure that rural populations can be provided with previously unavailable medical support directly, based upon local needs: virtual consultations and diagnostics, electronic health records (EHR) and disease management."
