Diagnostic Solution for Correctional Healthcare
Through our Enterprise Telemedicine Solution for Corrections, CompuMed has been able to address the unique aspects of providing healthcare to the correctional environment.

CompuMed’s network of certified technicians and sonographers can go directly to jails and prisons to administer all major types of cardiology and radiology exams, including X-Ray, Ultrasound, ECG, Chest CT, and Echo studies. Our business model addresses the challenges associated with information technology security because we take care of the process associated with transmitting exams to and from our specialists.

We rent, lease, and sell medical devices, such as ECG and ultrasound equipment, if your institution prefers to administer exams. Alternatively, our technicians and sonographers can provide the equipment as a standard part of our service.
