In Place Medical

  1. 1. A medical solution for extreme environmentsBecause a trip to the doctorisn’t always an option.
  2. 2. Our primary goal is to protect your business’s number oneasset – people.InPlace Medical Solutions is a brand division of NuPhysicia Inc., the telemedicine experts. Weprovide turnkey healthcare solutions for displaced populations. Anywhere in the world wherepeople are working away from population centers where it is logistically challenging, expensive, ordangerous to move personnel is where we make sense.We pride ourselves on meeting our customers’ needs. We work closely with our clients to ensurethat we ultimately meet their requirements and are flexible in our approach. Our team of dedicatedprofessionals have decades of technical expertise in telemedicine that is unmatched by any othercompany in the world.InPlace Medical Solutions – Setting the industry standardfor timely access to the highest quality medical care andwellness anytime, anywhere.WHAT WE BELIEVETimely access to care ultimately improves patient outcomes and reduces long term costs.Safe, reliable, results-driven medical management provides patients with a level of comfort andcare continuity not previously available in remote or harsh environments.Effective and efficient management of medical resources positively aligns with our customer’sobjectives of workforce health and satisfaction while assuring cost containment.In order to provide a world-class telemedicine program you must have:• An effectively trained medical professional physically onsite to respond to emergencies and carry out a licensed physician’s orders.• A non-distracted licensed physician available 24/7, on-demand trained and certified to perform a real time assessment of the patient which includes availability of noninvasive visual scopes, audio scopes, and additional diagnostic tools.• A reliable telemedicine device that allows for a secure point-to-point video connection at low bandwidths that does not rely on a computer.• An appropriate onsite pharmaceutical inventory to provide comfort and cure for most aliments.• An electronic medical record to capture the assessment and treatment of both on and offsite providers.We achieve our vision with the utilization of patent protected telemedicine technology andprocess. We ensure that we do not negatively impact businesses by connecting at very lowbandwidths. We protect our patient privacy by using secure connections and servers that are virusand Trojan resistant which are compliant with HIPAA and other relevant jurisdictional standards.
  3. 3. HOW IS INPLACE MEDICAL SOLUTIONS DIFFERENT?Many other companies claim to be providing telemedicine services. Most cannot produce a workingmodel and none have the years of experience in delivering telemedicine that we have.High-Quality Video TelemedicineOur video telemedicine uses top-quality video appliances with supplemental examination tools -a vast advance over webcams that give basic consultation via a webcam portal such as Skype®.Webcam consultations do not have the scopes necessary for the physician or medical staff toperform an assessment of the patient. It does not comply with privacy laws and can increase riskof litigation for the customer. From an IT perspective they utilize more bandwidth than our systemand offer a portal to the customers networks for viruses and malware.Advanced Remote Diagnostic DevicesOur available remote diagnostics include 12-lead EKGs, defibrillators, cardiac pacers, oximeters,and blood testing and are significantly more featured than devices that simply transmit a vitalsign. Simple vital sign units have lower diagnostic quality and there is not a medical professionalor medical cache on site to fix the problems that are detected.No Use of PC-Based Telemedicine HardwareOur video appliances are purpose-built solid-state devices that have no PC. PC units rely on unreli-able computer hard drives and vulnerable operating systems to process the information being sentand received. Bandwidth use is unpredictable and they offer a portal to the customers’ networksfor viruses and malware. HOW IT WORKS WORKS IN YOUR EXISTING CARE FACILITIES REAL-TIME PATIENT EXAMS BY BOARD CERTIFIED DOCTORS PROVEN TO WORK FOR OVER A DECADE READY TO WORK FOR YOU1. At the virtual physician’s office at your location, a trained medical professional works with your employee and uses special instruments for the examination.2. Medical-quality images are sent to the doctor, allowing full diagnosis and treatment—all while in real-time conversation with the patient and medical professional.3. Using two-way video, the doctor conducts an examination, in a real-time conversation with the patient and medical professional.4. A special electronic stethoscope enables the doctor to listen to: heart, lungs, abdomen, various blood vessels.5. Special illuminated instruments let the doctor examine inside the ears, nose, throat, and view skin with high resolution magnification.
