Telemedicine Solution Recognized for Innovation and Excellence
MELVILLE, N.Y., January 16, 2020 – Henry Schein Medical, the U.S. medical business of Henry Schein, Inc., today announced that its telemedicine solution, Medpod - specifically its medical microcart, MobileDoc® 2 - was selected as a recipient of 2019 EMS World Innovation Awards. This award program, presented by EMS World - a magazine focusing on clinical care, systems operation, funding, research and other aspects of the prehospital emergency care profession - recognizes the industry’s most pioneering products of 2019 that were on display at EMS World Expo in New Orleans. In addition, Medpod received Long Island Business News’ ‘Innovations in Health Care’ award as part of the publication’s Achievements in Health Care annual awards program, which was held in New York.
Medpod MobileDoc® 2, developed by Medpod, Inc. - a software company facilitating high quality provider-to-patient and provider-to-provider consultations with tele-diagnostic solutions - is a portable diagnostic cart that folds into a 21-inch suitcase and integrates best-in-class professional medical-grade devices. As a result, health care practitioners can conduct remote telediagnostic examinations for patients in non-traditional care settings, such as homes, offices, schools, ambulances and senior care facilities.
“We are pleased that both industry and mainstream audiences are recognizing the shift toward home-based care, and the innovative technologies that are changing how and where quality health care can be delivered," said Michael Casamassa, Vice President of Solutions, Henry Schein Medical. “As the exclusive distributor of Medpod telemedicine solutions, we look forward to expanding off-site point-of-care options our customers can rely on to meet their patients’ portable needs, and we will continue to explore opportunities that will break the boundaries of traditional care.”
An independent panel of judges consisting of EMS World editorial advisory board members and EMS World Expo faculty met one-on-one with company representatives to demo each entry, learn about its application, and determine whether it was worthy of this esteemed honor.
The Long Island Business News Achievements in Health Care Awards program aims to recognize excellence, promote innovation, contribute to the enhancement of the value and quality of health care and, ultimately, recognize the people and organizations whose tireless work, contributions and dedication to healing and caring ensure the well-being of everyone on Long Island.
