C PORT Solutions Launches MEDI PORT to Bring Powerful New Telemedicine Solutions to the Hospital Bedside
Date:10/20/2010

ATLANTA, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- With the launch of MEDI PORT, C PORT Solutions is the world's first company to converge all forms of communication and collaboration with patient data, medical applications, and existing healthcare technologies so all healthcare professionals can diagnose or treat a patient with the highest level of care regardless of the healthcare professional's location.  

MEDI PORT is a powerful mobile computing platform enabled with high definition video conferencing capability which can be rolled anywhere it's needed – the OR, ER, hospital ward or outpatient clinic.  The device allows remote medical specialists to view patients and provide expert counsel, especially important for rural clinics and field hospitals with limited medical staff.  Live surgeries can be shared remotely for purposes of mentoring and training and better diagnoses are enabled via bedside access to patient data and web based resources.  

MEDI PORT has been developed through a strategic partnership with Rubbermaid Medical Solutions and St Joseph Hospital's Translational Research Institute (SJTRI) in Atlanta. C PORT, in collaboration with St. Joseph's, has configured Rubbermaid Medical Solutions' industry leading medical cart with C PORT's platform to converge high definition video conferencing, high definition audio conferencing, web conferencing and interactive annotation/white board technology onto a single mobile device that can be rolled anywhere, including a patient or procedure room.  Rubbermaid Medical Solutions is the leading provider of clinical workstations and mobile computing solutions for healthcare facilities.  

MEDI PORT is simple to use and delivers significantly more functionality at half the cost of other medical carts enabled with video conferencing capabilities.  "Current technologies are expensive and fail to bridge the gap between the procedure room and access to the information and expertise required to ensure quality patient care. This causes delays in treatment, adds cost and potentially compromises patient outcome," said Lee Hicks founder and CEO of C PORT.  "Our solution bridges that gap allowing doctors and other medical experts to collaborate, communicate and apply their knowledge to those who need it at a time and place where they need it most."

Driven by aging population, increased requirements in remote locations and the need to control rising health care costs, the world market for telemedicine is growing at 7 to 8% per year and is expected to exceed $18 billion by 2015 according to Global Industry Analysts.  Growth in the US market (currently $9.5 billion) has been further stimulated by federal grants to encourage telemedicine and develop telecommunications infrastructure.

"We are very excited about this partnership," said Dr James Fonger, Executive Director of St Joseph's Translational Research Institute. "MEDI PORT enables us to bring medical experts and clinical researchers from around the world into our procedure rooms and labs for live consultation and collaboration.  It also gives us a great platform for conducting some of our physician training remotely."
