DOT Telemedicine Backpack is the first lightweight, mobile telemedicine solution that enables field care providers to conduct high quality, reliable, real-time video consults with physicians to treat patients even in the most remote areas or on the go. Leveraging swyMed’s patent-pending video technology, the DOT Telemedicine Backpack delivers smooth, reliable connectivity for Mobile Integrated Healthcare, at the lowest bandwidth in the market. The company will be showcasing its DOT Telemedicine Backpack at HIMSS17, taking place on February 19th-23rd in Orlando, FL.
“Our customers have relayed many stories of how swyMed’s technology has helped them provide quality care in crisis situations, as well as in community care programs,” said Stefano Migliorisi, CEO of swyMed. “From paramedicine care providers who are reducing readmissions via home visits to EMTs in ambulances who connect with neurologists for telestroke consults while on the move, innovative hospitals and healthcare systems count on us to provide a consistent, high-quality connection to a physician, saving not only time and money, but lives as well.”
swyMed’s DOT Telemedicine Backpack can be relied upon for critical transport, monitoring homebound patients with chronic conditions in an effort to reduce ED admissions, remotely treating nursing home patients to prevent unnecessary transports to the ED, and connecting to remote facilities where coverage is thin and bandwidth is thinner. The ability for a doctor to see a patient over video, especially while en route from one location to another, allows the doctor to monitor changes in the patient’s condition, potentially bypass the ED, and determine the best course of treatment until the patient arrives at their destination.

It includes everything needed for a reliable, exceptional-quality video telemedicine encounter, including antennas, redundant dual-modem connection, 15-hour battery, integrated speaker/microphone, two digital scopes, and ruggedized sunlight-readable tablet with full HD camera. swyMed’s proven software overcomes traditional connectivity issues in even the most difficult environments to enable professionals to treat and monitor patients from anywhere through real-time video
