September 17, 2014
CHELMSFORD, Mass. – AMD Global Telemedicine Inc. (AMD), the world’s leading developer of clinical Telemedicine Encounter Management Solutions (TEMS) has announced the launch of live streaming ultrasound technology for telemedicine applications.
The technology is a result of collaborative development efforts between Interson Corporation and AMD Global Telemedicine to enable real-time ultrasound video directly inside AGNES Interactive patient encounter management software.
The integration of ultrasound technology inside the AGNES platform marks another milestone of medical device integration and interoperability for AMD Global Telemedicine. When viewed through AGNES Interactive, the USB-connected ultrasound probe displays high-quality images and eliminates the need for a separate ultrasound machine or viewing software.
Clinical healthcare providers can now deliver access to high-quality ultrasound images simultaneous to doing the patient exam and tele-consult with the remote specialist.
“Interson is proud to be a part of AMD’s innovation to move ultrasound imaging further into primary-care medicine. Integrating ultrasound technology into telemedicine software extends the value of telemedicine to deliver care beyond a physician’s fingertips,” commented Roman Solek (pictured), CEO and President, Interson Corporation.
