Improving prison health whilst reducing the cost of inmate transfers
All prisons have basic medical clinics to treat simple ailments. However, for specialist services, the patient must be transported to a hospital with secure facilities so they can visit a doctor in person.
Prisoner transportation is expensive, and the lengthy delays involved may have a detrimental impact on a patient’s health.
The solution? The ProEX Telehealth Hub enables HD video consultations, allowing practitioners at the prison medical clinic to examine the patient confidently and in collaboration with a specialist via video teleconferencing.
High-resolution images, video and patient vitals collected by the ProEX Telehealth Hub, along with access to their medical history, allows the specialist to create a treatment plan and decide whether the inmate needs to be transported or not.
