Health technology firms, Visionflex and Parity Medical, have announced a partnership that will lower the number of avoidable hospital referrals across the UK’s National Health Service and improve access to healthcare across the whole country. Healthcare Professionals can perform a wide range of examinations and immediately send the results to specialists via secure data transfer without the need for the patient to travel to a hospital and thus reducing the time to treatment.
“It’s much more efficient for the doctor, and the patient does not need to travel for hours to see a doctor,” says Mike Harman, CEO of Australia based, Visionflex.
Patient observations, such as blood pressure, images and test results can be stored in the electronic health record system (EHR) and be used and retrieved at subsequent sessions where necessary. This partnership marks an important milestone for Visionflex’ expansion to other international markets. Visionflex cutting-edge technology has been successfully trialled and purchased by organisations such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS), Justice Health in New South Wales and in a research facility in Antarctica. Benefits for both, patients and Healthcare professionals include:
- Reduced risk of infection and transmission of diseases in waiting rooms
- Direct connection to a specialist via secure video conferencing
- Fast transfer of images, data, and test results via Visionflex cutting-edge device technology decreasing time to treatment
- Accessibility to healthcare for everyone, anywhere in the world
The cooperation with Parity Medical marks the start of an exciting new step towards expanding Visionflex partnerships outside Australia and entering the international market on a larger scale.
