Asnet launches medical video conferencing Practitioner Cart
Asnet Technologies Ltd has launched a revolutionary new video conferencing solution for medical professionals in New Zealand – the Practitioner Cart.

The fully mobile system, which operates over standard Wi-Fi, combines high definition video and audio to share real-time, high definition images between remote locations, enabling medical professionals to provide assessments of patients, regardless of time or distance.

Eric Greenop, Managing Director of Asnet Technologies says the advanced telepresence capabilities of the cart allow medical professionals to provide real time consultations, education and mentoring, and to even broadcast medical procedures with complete high definition clarity.

“The versatility of the Practitioner Cart is extensive, as existing medical and non-medical peripheral devices can connect to it, which allows for comprehensive engagement including sharing of data and content between the health care professional and their patient.”

Close-up medical camera images of a patient’s throat, ears or skin, for example, can be instantly shared with an offsite professional who can then consult with the patient, in a similar way to a face-to-face meeting.

“This device allows an off-site medical practitioner to literally be present in the room for a patient consultation. This means that diagnostic decisions can be made quickly and accurately which, in extreme cases, could mean the difference between life and death for a patient.”

With Wi-fi connectivity and its own in-built power supply, the Practitioner Cart is truly mobile, and easily maneuverable. It has an adjustable frame that is compact enough to allow it to be transported easily through hospital wards, operating units and other medical facilities.

Greenop says the first Practitioner Cart in New Zealand has already been deployed to a South Island hospital, and is proving popular with staff and patients by delivering excellent results.

“The hospital staff are very enthusiastic at the scope of application that this new technology will bring, and we are very pleased to be able to deliver this leading edge solution, through our partners, into the New Zealand healthcare industry for the first time. ” says Mr. Greenop.

“The Practitioner Cart is an impressive, practical piece of technology and we look forward to seeing it increasingly become a key part of the New Zealand health care industry.”
