CA750 Telemedicine Cart Telehealth Care by Cory Costley

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
CA750 Telemedicine Cart

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Telehealth Care

INSPIRATION:
The CA750’s purpose is to bring healthcare to those who need it by connecting remote doctors to their patients at the point of care – whether patients are in an urban community, rural town, nursing home, or school. The CA750 can be used across “service lines” including stroke, behavioral health, and pediatrics, to name a few. Connecting any patient to any provider from any place provides reassurance that no matter where you live, you’ll have access to the right doctor at the right time.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Avizia created a cart designed specifically for telehealth to instantly bring a remote doctor to a patient without complicated technology. An easy-to-use control panel enables video and shares diagnostic images with the click of a button. To maximize clean-ability, Avizia customized an edge-to-edge glass display, integrated with a microphone, and used hidden downward-facing speakers to protect against splashing. Wi-Fi and a battery allow mobility and keep the system ready at all times.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Everything needed for a telehealth visit is built into the CA750. Once added to a hospital’s network, simply push a button to call a doctor. The doctor can instantly see and hear the patient. Example: With stroke care time is brain. When a stroke patient arrives at the ER at 3 am, odds are that there isn’t a neurologist on call. The ER’s coordinator schedules the patient with an on call doctor and an off-site neurologist. The on-call doctor wheels in the CA750 telemedicine cart and simply presses a button to bring the remote specialist into the room over video. Together, the providers diagnose the patient, recommend tPA and save the patient’s life or motor skills. The CA750 saves precious minutes in a critical situation where every second counts.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in 2014 and was completed in 2015 in Reston, Virginia. The project was exhibited for the first time at the American Telemedicine Association Annual Conference & Tradeshow in Los Angeles, California in May 2015.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Scientific Instruments, Medical Devices and Research Equipment Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The CA750 was designed by a team of engineers with decades of experience and a diverse background in video conference, FDA testing and electronics. To maximize the cart's usability in a medical setting, Avizia consulted actual doctors and hospital staff who would be using the cart daily. Throughout the design phase, Avizia partnered with specialists in electronic design, assembly and testing to ensure the cart met the highest standards for medical use.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
When deciding on the features included in the cart, Avizia thought the best approach to making a cart meant for hospitals was to include hospitals in the creation process. Working with multiple hospitals, Avizia gathered feedback for eight months to ensure the cart fulfilled the needs of those who would be using it. These hospitals were included in every step of the process and were key to creating the final product. Avizia turned to nurses and physicians to ensure the cart had the tools they would need, without being difficult or time consuming to use. From button placement, to direction of the carts’ microphones, Avizia’s team was able to learn from physicians and nurses using the cart. By stepping outside of a lab and working on the product in its future environment, Avizia was able to build the CA750 with the features and tools those using it would need to provide excellent patient care.
