Telehealth technology leader WiCis allows patients to share in real time their vital signs to any internet connected device with only a 1-2 second delay.
LAKE TAHOE, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The #EverestFlash19 team is set to reach the summit in mid-May. Led by Lukas Furthenbach, the group is accompanied by porters and Sherpas from Nepal and Tibet. One of the most remote places on Earth, Mount Everest is the highest and arguably the world’s most intimidating mountain. Leo Montejo MD, WiCis CEO, is also the expedition’s doctor. On Mount Everest North (Tibet) there is no simple evacuation if a climber gets sick or is injured. The nearest major medical facility from base camp could be up one day away. Measuring vital signs and delivering the best outcomes and highest quality service from anywhere is the key. WiCis is bringing not only a doctor and Telehealth equipment to Advanced Base Camp (21,000 feet) and the North Col (>23,000 feet) to manage or treat climbers or sherpas if needed, but is also sharing live dashboards with a team of doctors and nurses in California.
The WiCis I-Streme Monitor sensors are continuously streaming live data. Today a Sherpa returned to base camp seemingly shaken, and Dr. Montejo streamed live his EKG waveforms, heart rate, oxygen saturation, SpO2 waveforms, skin temperature, blood pressure and shared all this with a team in California, all to a live WiCis CareFlows dashboard running in the MS Azure cloud. Live Dashboards dominate all decisions today in HealthCare and WiCis is a leader in real time medical information. Data was streamed to the WiCis Telehealth Platform using Thuraya Sat-Sleeve+, and it was available within one to two seconds later on any internet-enabled device in the planet. The WICis solution can stream medical data with ease using 3g, Wi-Fi, or satellite. A team of caregivers will keep track of the party’s progress from California. Access to the dashboard is open to everyone: http://public.wicis.com/#4b72c
Remote monitoring will reduce costs for healthcare and will allow more patients’ access to remote medical support and in real time. WiCis is unique in that its all-in-one digital and mobile interactive Telehealth platform combines Live customizable Workflows, Video-Conferencing and Dashboards which display Live Data. In short the WiCis solution replaces the doctor visit by combining visual contact (video-conferencing) the medical record (Careflows), and the live vital signs the doctor would observe from a monitor connected to the patient. WiCis offers therefore a collaborative solution that brings the power of this three-tiered approach to healthcare going well beyond video-conferencing.
From Dr. Montejo, WiCis CEO and Founder: “Our goal is to deliver the best medical outcomes through innovation, while treating patients and family members with sensitivity and empathy from anywhere, and extending Telemedicine well beyond video-conferencing, which is only a partial solution. ”
