MELVILLE, N.Y., May 3, 2022 – Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), announced its presence at the Urgent Care Association/College of Urgent Care Medicine Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, from April 30 through May 3. Visitors at Henry Schein Medical’s booth have the opportunity to learn about the Company’s comprehensive portfolio of equipment, supply chain, laboratory, pharmaceutical, and telemedicine solutions for urgent care centers and speak with Henry Schein representatives about how the team can help build, design, and equip urgent care facilities.
The Henry Schein Medical booth features the MedPod® Mobile Doc 2, where attendees can receive a demo of the telemedicine microcart packed into a self-deployable carry-on bag. The MedPod® Mobile Doc 2 leverages the latest advancements in live, cloud-based, two-way televideo communication and real-time streams of clinical data from medical devices, empowering remote providers with the ability to capture a wide range of clinical diagnostic and laboratory patient data to aid in decision-making. According to The State of Telemedicine Report from Doximity, many of the physicians surveyed for the report said that telemedicine helped their relationship with their patients. More than 67 percent of physicians said that telemedicine helped them build or maintain trust with patients from historically marginalized communities, and more than 73 percent of patients surveyed said they planned to receive some or all their care through telemedicine after the pandemic—an increase from 58 percent who expressed a similar sentiment in 2020.
“At Henry Schein, we understand the vital role urgent care centers play in delivering high-quality care and bridging the access-to-care gap between primary and emergency care settings,” said Russell Williamson, President, Capital and Lab Diagnostics, Henry Schein Medical. “Urgent care centers are an important and growing part of today’s network of care options, and facilities can rely on us to provide an extensive portfolio of medical products, revenue-generating programs, and solutions to help them manage costs while providing excellent care and improving patient outcomes.”
