Revolutionizing Rural Healthcare Delivery
Telemedicine for Rural Health
CompuMed is revolutionizing the delivery of healthcare within rural communities. Rural hospitals face unique challenges such as the lack of patient volume required to justify specialists in multiple modalities and often times the unwillingness of physicians to relocate to remote communities. Many times the high fixed costs associated with bringing specialists in-house is cost prohibitive for smaller medical facilities, such as Critical Access Hospitals. Typically, these organizations are forced to have diagnostic exams read by local specialists and family practice physicians which presents challenges in terms of study turnaround time, pricing, and patient referral pressures.
Ultimately, the result is diminished patient care and lost revenue for these medical facilities.

CompuMed provides rural medical facilities with direct access to specialists for diagnostic exam interpretations and clinical consultations using video technology. This scalable solution can be utilized by hospitals as needed such as 24/7, during peak periods, after hours, or during times when in-house specialists are on vacation.
