ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- New Mexico Software, Inc., d/b/a Net Medical Xpress (OTC Bulletin Board: NMXC), announced today that it has launched a comprehensive neurological telemedicine program at Alta Vista Regional Hospital in Las Vegas, NM.
Net Medical is a medical services company that provides clinical and diagnostic programs using advanced telemedicine solutions for rural hospitals. The company also develops FDA 510k cleared all-inclusive PACS products for the medical market.
The service provides remote neurological exams for cases involving stroke, concussions, seizures, migraines, minor head trauma, epilepsy, functional disorders and movement disorders among others. Imaging is available in 2D or 3D. These tools allow neurologists to quickly assess symptoms to make medical decisions.
Maridel Acosta, CEO of Alta Vista Regional Hospital, said, "This program has already been highly beneficial for our stroke patients needing quick access to specialists such as neurologists. The biggest advantage is we can quickly treat the patient locally and not disrupt their normal lives by transferring them to remote regional trauma centers 200 miles away. This also is a great benefit to the families who now are not forced to travel long distances with the patient. At Alta Vista Regional Hospital patients can get quick and competent care promptly when needed."
Net Medical Xpress CEO Dick Govatski said, "Quick access to a neurologist during an emergency can be critical to a positive outcome in the patient's treatment. We have been developing this program for some time and we were very pleased that Alta Vista agreed to become our first operational site. The success we have realized so far now sets the stage for an extensive roll out to additional hospitals."
"We are using multiple backup systems for the process including Apple's iPad™ tablets, multi- camera viewing, custom programming of our XR-EXpress PACS system, and report generators. We also provide a complete credentialing process built into XR-EXpress for our licensed neurologists. This all comes in a single system. The hospital does not need to buy additional software and CT and MRI scans can be transferred from the hospital's PAC system.
"We are still in the early part of a year that marks a huge inflection point for our company both operationally and financially. We are working on a number of important initiatives that I expect will transform our company and the future of telemedicine in significant, positive ways. We look forward to sharing more with you as the year unfolds," Govatski said.
