Esper, solution for single-purpose Android enterprise devices, announced they are providing enabling technology to organizations at the forefront of the global battle against COVID-19. Using this update to the Esper platform, healthcare organizations and solutions providers can remotely connect with their patients on Esper managed Android devices to perform initial triage before they are asked to visit the hospital.
India-based healthcare organizations and solution providers in the patient care field can qualify for Esper’s support to add secure video chat features to Android-based devices and apps. The Telehealth features can be used for secure one-to-one video sessions between physicians and patients who own an Android smartphone to improve medical care access.
Yadhu Gopalan, CEO, Esper, said, “Esper was founded to streamline Android innovation across various industries. Currently, Esper’s is engaged with various healthcare solution providers to add urgently needed capabilities to their Android applications for use cases such as thermal temperature scanning, tablets for senior citizens, and remote patient monitoring sensors. We’re doing our part in the global fight against COVID-19 by offering free telemedicine consultations on upgrading healthcare Android apps on the smartphones, tablets, and kiosks used by Physicians to support telehealth capabilities.”
Adds Shiv Sundar, COO, Esper, “COVID-19 has brought Telemedicine to the forefront in India. Millions of Indians who are currently in a lockdown can get access to basic healthcare consultation right from their smartphones. Telemedicine can be extremely beneficial in rural areas in India where the nearest hospital is located far away in the nearest city. Given that at least 5% to 10% of the population will require some sort of healthcare services at any given time, virtual visits and consultations can help reduce hospital visits and open care to those who otherwise would not be able to receive it.”
Physicians can use workplace mobile devices that are loaded with Esper-upgraded apps to virtually attend to patients off-site. Esper’s telemedicine solutions can be accessed by any patient with an Android smartphone and data connectivity to virtually see a Physician, schedule appointments, or access aftercare instructions. Organizations who qualify for the no-cost telemedicine consulting services include:
· Hospitals and healthcare organizations
· Assisted living facilities or nursing homes
· Home health care providers
· Independent medical practices
· Healthcare Android solutions providers
Using Esper’s cloud platform for single-purpose Android devices, healthcare organizations can rapidly add new app features to their existing fleet of healthcare smartphones, tablets, and kiosks. Esper’s cloud tools support a wide range of Android devices and versions, enabling seamless, no-touch updates to mobile devices and apps which are already deployed for use in clinical settings. Esper intends to prioritize complimentary consulting services to smaller healthcare organizations and agencies who face the greatest resource barriers to care delivery during the global fight against COVID-19. Healthcare organizations from any region worldwide are eligible to inquire about no-cost consultations with Esper’s global team in the U.S. and India.
