Dictum Health Unveils Virtual Exam Room for Cloud-based Telehealth System

Patients can interact one-on-one in private with physicians and share medical images and data

March 14, 2016 — Dictum Health Inc. unveiled its Virtual Exam Room (VER), the centerpiece of its cloud-based, cybersecure and HIPAA-compliant telehealth system.

The VER connects physicians with patients anytime, anywhere. Like an actual exam room, the VER is completely private and uses clinically accurate medical devices while providing patients with secure, real-time access to their physicians. Patients can use the VER to see a physician and share real-time vital signs, cardiopulmonary data and medical images. Managing patient populations through expediting clinical decision making, extending access to quality care and preserving the physician/patient relationship is paramount today.

Patients can easily create their personal exam rooms using the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared IDM100 integrated medical tablet, and physicians enter the VER using the Care Central Web interface from their laptop or tablet. The VER establishes the physician-to-patient videoconferencing session while securely sharing real-time vital signs and cardiopulmonary data. The result is the same quality and security as a medical office exam.

“Few patients require the level of continual, sophisticated monitoring that cardiac patients require,” said Susan Eisenberg, M.D., medical director of the Cardiac Rhythm Center at John Muir Health in Walnut Creek, Calif. “Dictum Health’s innovative Virtual Exam Room delivers not only the highest level remote monitoring of our cardiac patients, but enables me as their cardiologist to be present with them in a way that wasn’t previously possible. That’s a critical element in patient-centric care.”
