The DirectVision Telehealth Hub connects patients with specialists by supporting a wide range of professional medical examination accessories from a video conferencing enabled multi-functional device. The medical imaging system incorporates a high resolution medical-grade camera hand piece with an integrated, high-intensity light source. The DVTH also includes an integrated 10.1″ touch screen LCD display, HIPAA compliant patient data management interface and solid-state storage of still images and video. The DVTH also captures high definition images and videos from external sources, all in one small, convenient package.
The DVTH imaging hand piece is held in the hand like a pen, and supports a wide variety of interchangeable probes that snap onto the end of the hand piece for special imaging needs. Using our standard endoscope adapter most conventional medical endoscopes can be connected in a matter of seconds.
Visually Guided Urinary Catheter
Telemedicine intervention for difficult urinary catheterizations (DUC) has not been practical… until now.
For millions of men, urinary placements are far from routine. Indeed, male blind catheterization can be challenging, especially for those patients with enlarged prostate glands or who have obstructive conditions in their lower urinary tract.
When a DUC occurs and resistance is met, blind catheter advancement can cause many types of injuries and increases the likelihood of urinary catheter infections (CAUTI), the second most prevalent form of infection in hospitals today. There are over 13,000 U.S. deaths and more than $425 million in annual healthcare costs are attributed to CAUTI1. Not only is there heightened stress and pain for the patient, healthcare costs also increase due to extended hospital stay, trauma and infection, as well as additional and unreimbursed expenses from increased interventions and the complexity of follow-up care.
The inability to place a catheter results in further patient treatment delays because of escalation to a Urologist who may need to travel from a different hospital or city, or transportation of the patient to a facility that has an available Urologist. PercuVision offers the world’s only visually guided urinary catheter in its DVTH to see and navigate the urethra in real-time. Patient care providers at off-site locations can access medical expertise without having to transport patients, while doctors can extend their reach to patients who need care without leaving their current locations.
DirectVision is expected to help…
- Treat patients without transport and increase Urology presence
- Avoid costly injuries, complications and improve CAUTI scores
- Throughput efficiency and staff competency
- Reduce complications such as injury and CAUTI
- Enable access to Urologists
- Improve patient satisfaction
- Reduce treatment delays
- Limit additional charges
- Reduce interruptions and travel
- Facilitate Telementoring (consult is billable varies by location)
- Visual confirmation of placement
- Improve physician satisfaction
The endoscope adapter provides a simple mechanism to connect a wide range of medical endoscopes such as Olympus, Stryker, Aesculap & Storz (an external light source is required). When used with Nasopharyngoscopes for the examination of the Larynx and airways, the DVTH is an ideal solution for speech pathology and the examination of swallowing reflexes.
The otoscope probe is designed to provide brilliant endoscopic images of the ear or nasal cavities for patients ranging from small children to adults. The use of disposable specula provides hygiene between patients. No additional light source is required as the illumination is supplied by the hand piece.
General Imaging Probe
The general imaging probe is used for capturing images of the oral cavity, eyes, face and nose along with images of the tonsils, cleft palates and intraoral lesions, and extremities such as hands and feet.
The dental probe is used for capturing intraoral images of the dental cavity. The aperture angle of 60° ensures brilliant images of 1 to 5 teeth at a magnification of up to 25x. Due to the slender 9mm design and wide 8-45mm focal range, the probe is ideally suited to areas of the mouth that are usually difficult to approach.
With magnifications of x20, x45, x80 & x150, the dermatology probe is ideal for diagnosing and recording external skin conditions. Complete with focus adjustment, the probe can be setup for surface magnification or for viewing into cavities or wounds up to 10mm deep.
The sinus probes are available in two viewing angles, 0 and 30 degrees, each with a 60-degree field of view. Both probes are 2.7mm in diameter and 110mm in length.
GEIS General Exam Camera
The GEIS ‘General Examination & Imaging System’ camera from PercuVision provides exceptional quality images in full 1080P HD resolution and brings telemedicine imagery to a whole new level. The GEIS allows the operator to use the system with automatic or manual focus thereby providing clear and crisp images every time. Accessories include the tongue depressor attachment for images of the oral cavity and the dermatology hood for exceptional images of the skin. The General Exam Camera can be used in a wide range of applications where clear, precise & high-quality images are essential.
The GEIS hand held camera produces beautiful (16:9) full HD images which can be viewed on the DVTH or any PC/Mac through a standard USB 2.0 interface. No software drivers required!
- Auto or manual focus which makes it quick and easy to get a clear picture
- Integrated capture function which saves an image without the use of a keyboard or mouse
- Auto white balance ensures accurate colors are captured during patient exam
- LED brightness control
- Auto gain to control image brightness
The DVTH facilitates rapid health management consultations for patients who have limited access to specialist services. By connecting with their chosen healthcare specialist, the local health practitioner can examine a patient using the DVTH and consult directly with a specialist provider at another location. All images and videos can be transmitted through the video conferencing connection to a specialist for remote diagnosis, or stored locally on the encrypted hard drive for later analysis or archiving.
Video conferencing technology has been embedded into the DVTH allowing patients and doctors to connect easily via the internet, a local network, the internet, or via 3G/4G/LTE using an optional interface module with all patient identifying data concealed to comply with HIPPA
Features & Benefits:
- Telehealth ready for use with any existing system and or platform
- All images and data from any peripherals can be transmitted
- Powerful software to maintain high image quality at all times
- All patient identifying data hidden
- Easy to use address book function
- Scheduling of calls with pop up reminders
