HP and GlobalMed Partner for New Tablet-Based Solution, Telemedicine Carts

By Ariel Jones — January 19, 2012

GlobalMed, a healthcare delivery systems company, recently announced that it will partner with HP to introduce three new mobile telemedicine carts and a tablet PC solution that will allow physicians to connect with each other and care for patients remotely.

The new telemedicine carts powered by HP will combine GlobalMed's cart designs with HP's LCD touchscreen monitors and Small Form Factor Workstations with Intel i5 or i7 processors. Based on GlobalMed's i8500 Series Telemedicine Carts, all of the HP-powered carts can be customized according to a physician or practice's clinical workflow needs.

The GlobalMed General Practice Cart and GlobalMed Specialty Cart will come equipped with a TotalExam camera for patient examinations, a digital stethoscope, and CapSure image automation software to monitor exam images. The Specialty Cart will also include a TotalENT otoscope for recording digital video.

Designed with patient and physician education programs in mind, the GlobalMed Educational Cart will feature a 42-inch monitor, which will let practitioners keep patients better informed during remote telehealth evaluations.

The GlobalMed Endpoint Tablet solution (which integrates HP's EliteBook 2760p) allows physicians or specialists to remotely view CapSure images through CONi Services, which archives patient exam images in EMRs.

All of the HP-powered GlobalMed Telemedicine Carts are tested and certified to perform with a variety of medical software solutions and peripheral devices.

"Using our workstations and displays as the foundation, HP is changing the way we treat and see patients," said Chris Mertens, VP of Healthcare and Personal Systems Group at HP. "Combining the reliability and stability of HP Workstations with HP's quality testing and certification processes makes the i8500 series a great choice for healthcare providers looking to connect to other facilities around the world."
