Empowering First Line Medical Workers with Hands-Free, Voice-Enabled Collaboration
A visit to the doctor is at the heart of healthcare today. Hospitals that utilise full technological capabilities to their team keep patients – and themselves – safer and much more effective. The average time a physician spends with a patient in the U.S. is 17.4 minutes – save time and see more patients by using Telemedicine. By utilising this technology healthcare professionals can see four extra patients, and give you more time and more focus with them.

Local proctors are not always available when a situation requires them. Healthcare system costs can rise due to staffing or travel of, which can result in a delay in care for patients.
RealWear’s teleproctoring solution allows real time and asynchronous recording from the provider’s perspective to allow first-hand observation. This reduces the need for proctors to be on-site at all times and also reduces delay in patient care.
The state of medicine and healthcare is evolving at an exponential pace, making knowledge acquisition a serious challenge. This is especially true in the current COVID-19 global pandemic. Healthcare providers require information using a multitude of communication methods, as well as from peer expertise.
With an asynchronous, or “store and forward,” recording capability, new surgical techniques and procedures can be disseminated quickly. Real time streaming can also assist providers during patient rounds with off-site specialists, aiding in more accurate and timely care to the patient.
Taking a patient’s temperature relies on body contact and can take up to 3 minutes to obtain an accurate result. This may risk injuries or infection spread to patient or practioner, especially in crowded environments and in today’s pandemic-hit world.
Hands-free infrared thermography helps screen for elevated body temperatures which may indicate the presence of a fever, all without requiring the use of hands. The screener can remain mobile and protected to avoid infected parties entering clean zones by using just his voice.
Advanced Practice Clinicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians Assistants, Nurse Anesthetists and Midwives are a vital part of the medical systems of the future, yet they have significantly less training and experience than physicians.
The innovative use of RealWear’s HMT-1 can provide on-demand clinical support, assessment of clinical needs and in depth, ongoing professional development through case studies and team-based learning.
With the onset of COVID-19 and related conditions, early diagnosis of emerging infections, diseases, and other time-critical conditions is vital. In many cases access to medical expertise in real time is not possible at the point of first outbreak.
RealWear’s platform allows a provider to stream, in real time, their interactions and conversations with their patient to multiple experts globally. This allows those experts to assist in early stage diagnosis and identification of potential serious health care issues, without the need for travel or time delay.

Use Case Videos
When every step in a procedure could make a difference between life or death, this telemedical solution running on HMT-1 can give an additional set of eyes on the patient, as well as two way communication and video/photo capture for even the most risky of procedures.
Pre-hospital care covers any immediate need, oftentimes outside the scope of knowledge of that paramedic. The HMT allows the paramedic or first responder either workflow instructions or a live-support from the hospital to assist in the pre-hospital care.
