Prison Health

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.
