Telehealth innovations to play key role in disaster response
CHARLOTTE, NC – Let’s Talk Interactive Inc. (LTI), in partnership with GlobalMed®, today announces the launch of solar-powered field-ready telehealth kits that enable emergency response teams to provide on-the-spot medical care to patients from the heart of disaster zones. LTI has evolved its telehealth platform to offer military-grade disaster support technology for regions often damaged by storms. The self-powered telehealth kits enable rescue teams to connect with healthcare providers directly via virtual sessions, with scopes and cameras allowing for thorough exams such as wound care and vitals.
“Hurricane season officially begins on June 1. As a modern nation, we’ve never had to navigate hurricane disaster response amid a global pandemic,” shared Arthur Cooksey, Founder and CEO of Let’s Talk Interactive. “What do we do if disaster strikes and hospitals are already at capacity? How can we help those injured or displaced without putting specialists or providers in danger in the field – especially amid COVID-19? The solution is telehealth. We are continuing to develop solutions that bring greater access to healthcare, especially as the telehealth becomes a vastly accepted source of care across the globe.”
Rugged, quick-response product engineering
The mobile kits are self-powered through the sun and charge faster than they consume power. They are equipped with a built-in hotspot, simply drop in a sim card to get connected into cellular networks, which are among the first to get back up and running after an emergency.
