InPlace Medical Solutions(TM) secures 24/7 physician access to serve offshore health needs by video telemedicine

HOUSTON, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- InPlace Medical Solutions, the first full-service offshore medical product using video telemedicine, has achieved another first in the offshore medical industry - securing physician staffing for 24/7/365 services by video telemedicine for its clients. All services are provided by emergency medicine and internal medicine physicians who are board-certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine or the American Board of Internal Medicine.

eCareGroup PLLC, an independent physician group based in Houston, Texas, USA, has developed a team of physicians - all experienced in video telemedicine - to provide services to offshore and remote locations. Unlike other services that only use telephones, the eCareGroup physicians provide offshore care via InPlace Medical Solutions advanced video telemedicine systems whenever needed regardless of time of day. To maximize availability, eCareGroup's doctors follow the important premise of the "non-distracted provider" - meaning they have no other duties when providing this service. eCareGroup PLLC is exclusively providing this service to InPlace Medical Solutions.

Shannon Caldwell, executive director of NuPhysicia, LLC, the company that created InPlace Medical Solutions, said, "We believe the eCareGroup, PLLC is the first to offer this advanced level of service in the offshore industry. Doctors are on duty and available 24/7 via live, two-way videoconferencing for InPlace Medical Solutions clients. These doctors stand ready to see patients, diagnose their illness or injury, recommend care and treatment, and prescribe medications when required."

"This is a significant step forward in offshore medical services capabilities," Caldwell continued. "We can seamlessly add offshore rigs, shipyards and other remote workplaces to our system, and all patients will be treated by doctors who are skilled in using our systems and video telemedicine technology."

InPlace Medical Solutions' delivery model places the right resources on Internet-enabled offshore rigs and remote facilities: specially qualified medics from the eCareGroup, advanced equipment, medical-quality videoconferencing, and an electronic medical record (EMR) system for recordkeeping. Facilities are supplied with 128 prescription medications, including vaccines and 20 types of antibiotics. Unlike a medic supported by a doctor by telephone, InPlace Medical Solutions' live, two-way videoconferencing allows the doctor to see and talk to the patient. The physician can do examinations with video scopes and a digital stethoscope.

The eCareGroup physicians providing medical services for InPlace Medical Solutions clients have over 135 years of combined medical experience, primarily in the field of emergency medicine. All are board-certified, and some have dual certification in other specialties such as family medicine, cardiology, pulmonology, and nephrology.

In addition, InPlace Medical Solutions, through these retained physicians in the eCareGroup, offers services previously not widely available in remote locations - such as health risk assessments, occupational medicine, preventive care, and health and wellness programs.

"InPlace Medical Solutions brings new capabilities to offshore medical services by providing workers continual access to direct physician attention and high tech medical technology at any remote workplace," Caldwell continued, "This allows offshore companies to improve the health of their workforce, and increase productivity while significantly reducing risks, insurance costs and operating costs."

Caldwell concluded, "InPlace Medical Solutions is very proud to be the first offshore service to have contracted full-time staffing by physicians for video telemedicine. We are leading the industry in use of advanced technologies for delivery of quality health care to workers in remote locations worldwide."
