Telehealth Exam From Antarctica To India

In New Delhi, India over 600 attendees from 35 countries watch on as Dr Jan Wallace assesses Dawson Station mechanic Tom for a possible head and jaw injury. Using the Visionflex ProEX Hub to switch seamlessly from video-enabled glasses to a high-resolution dental probe you’d be forgiven for thinking they were right next door instead of some 15,000 kilometres away in the most remote region on earth: Antarctica.

State-Of-The-Art Telehealth Equipment in Remote NSW Village, Wanaaring

For residents of the Wanaaring region a trip to the doctor can mean 100’s of kilometres on bull dust roads in scorching heat. An innovative pilot program by the Royal Flying Doctors and NSW Health has us traveling 1200kms, much of it only accessible by 4WD, to install a ProEX Telehealth Hub in our specialised VF-Cabinet and bring these folks closer to the healthcare they deserve.

ENT Dr Chris Perry Upgrades To HD Imaging

Dr Perry faced a dilemma: How can he upgrade his aging analog system to high definition for more accurate diagnosis in his practice without the cost and headache of replacing all of his cameras? Fortunately, Visionflex CEO Mike Harman had developed the perfect solution.

“I’ve been working with Mike and the team for over 15 years and once again, they’ve come up with terrific technology which is the perfect solution for my needs.” Dr Perry said.

“All of my older camera equipment now connect to the ProEX hubs in each of my rooms providing me with excellent quality images. I would recommend the team to anyone considering upgrading their camera technology or archiving systems”.

Visionflex is the proud recipient of the Building Partnerships Grant

The Building Partnerships Grants provides funding to partners to develop innovative, new-to-market solutions. To be successful the solution must use an enabling technology to address a compelling industry need. ‘Enabling Technologies’ are new technologies or new uses for existing technologies that enable new products, services, or more efficient processes.

In collaboration with the Royal Flying Doctor Service and NSW Health, Visionflex has developed the capability for the ProEX Telehealth Hub to be used in “unattended mode” where a local nurse is not available. The innovative “VF-Cabinet” has a remote unlock feature that allows the doctor in Broken Hill to unlock the cabinet remotely and give access to the patient for a self-examination via video conferencing.

The second stage of the Visionflex project to bring telehealth services to remote communities in NSW was successfully completed with the deployment of a VF-Cabinet and ProEX Telehealth Hub to Wanaaring.
