Health technology business, Visionflex, has introduced the Sonosite iViz system to its telehealth product range. Sonosite iViz is a highly portable, point-of-care ultrasound system manufactured by FUJIFILM Sonosite, Inc., which is fully compatible with Visionflex’s ProEX range and will add a series of examination options.
The compact hand-held ultrasound features the latest technology and can be paired with a selection of transducers depending on the use case.
iViz combines advanced image processing and a high-resolution display to provide the image quality you need for high-quality ultrasound images. With this handy and versatile addition to the Visionflex telehealth product range, healthcare professionals can immediately send the results of a sonogram to specialists via secure data transfer without the need for the patient to travel to see a doctor and thus reducing the time required to receive treatment.
Mike Harman, CEO at Visionflex, said: “Adding an ultrasound device to our product range closes a gap in telehealth that many have been waiting for.”
Ultrasound images can be stored in an electronic health record system (EHR) and be used and retrieved at subsequent sessions where necessary.
This partnership marks an important milestone for Visionflex’s expansion into other verticals in the telehealth sector. The ultrasound peripheral will be able to aide healthcare professionals in:
> Aged care facilities
> Remote hospitals
> Women’s health
> Sports medicine
> Military hospitals
> Isolated facilities such as oil rigs.
The cooperation with Fujifilm Sonosite marks an important step towards expanding the Visionflex telehealth products range to make healthcare accessible for everyone around the globe.In 1936, Fujifilm launched its healthcare business with X-ray film. With the primary goal of improving patient outcomes, Fujifilm continued to innovate and invest in digital radiography, endoscopy, ultrasound, healthcare IT, contract development and manufacturing, regenerative medicine, and new drug development and beyond.

It will vastly improve remote healthcare by giving healthcare professionals more telehealth examination options and potentially improving the quality of life for patients, many of whom are unable to travel to see a specialist.
