OnMed®, an innovative health technology company providing affordable access to quality care, today announced a partnership and first deployment of its breakthrough telemedicine station with Tampa General Hospital. Staff members now have access to the OnMed Station for virtual life-sized consultations with physicians and automated pharmaceutical services.The OnMed Station allows users to have real-time consultations with a doctor or advanced practice provider via high definition video and audio. The station even allows doctors to prescribe and dispense hundreds of common medications through a secure, automated vault, saving users a trip to the pharmacy. For example, those who may be experiencing common ailments such as strep throat, or sinus infections can walk away with a diagnosis and antibiotic medication within minutes, not hours.

"At Tampa General Hospital, we are on a journey to becoming the safest and most innovative academic health system in America," said John Couris, President and CEO of Tampa General Hospital. "The health and wellness of our team members are just as important to us as the patients we care for everyday at our hospital. By utilizing the OnMed Station within our employee base, we can ensure that our staff is prioritizing their wellness with access to instant care, if needed."

The OnMed Station design is patented domestically and internationally and can be used in hospitals, colleges, airports, hotels, large private employers and other locations.

"We believe telehealth is the future, but in order to see long-term success, it has to go beyond a phone call with a doctor," said Austin White, President and CEO of OnMed. "This is why we created OnMed – to combine the clinical expertise and diagnostic capabilities of an in-person visit with the convenience and efficiency of a remote visit. Tampa General Hospital has always been a champion for innovation in health care, and we see this as the next step in a combined effort to expand the reach of care."

Features of the OnMed Station:

•Height, weight and BMI measurements
•Dispensing of hundreds of common medications
•Thermal imaging to read body temperature and diagnose infection
•Readings of blood pressure, respiration and blood oxygen saturation
•Audio and visual inspection of vitals in HD video and audio
•High-output ultraviolet surface and air sanitization to eliminate pathogens after every patient visit
E•xam room protected by privacy glass
•Live and life-size physician encounter
•Option to securely transmit results to primary care physicians
•Ability to provide paper prescriptions, e-prescriptions to preferred pharmacies, referrals and self-service lab kits for diagnostic testing

"Following the initial placement, Tampa General Hospital is developing a strategy to deploy multiple stations throughout the community. For example, we are looking to partner with OnMed to place this innovative health technology station in various public consumer facing areas, such as local schools and airports. Right now, we are committed to prioritizing the wellness of our own Team Members by providing them access to instant care, when they need it. We believe the OnMed Station will prove valuable for our teams," said Adam Smith, senior vice president of Ambulatory Services for Tampa General Hospital.
