announced today that it launched the Medpac solution along with Medpod.
Melville, New York-based Henry Schein and Medpod collaborated to develop Medpac as a lightweight, portable telediagnostic offering. It enables healthcare providers to offer comprehensive professional care regardless of location. The companies say it bridges the gap between remote telemedicine consultations and in-person office visits.
Henry Schein and Medpod have a long-standing relationship, having collaborated on telehealth with Uber Health in 2019. The company distributes the Medpod MobileDoc platform.
“We are excited to join forces with Medpod Inc. to introduce Medpac, which will further our efforts to help health care providers deliver exceptional care to patients in any setting,” said Todd Stack, GM of medical solutions at Henry Schein. “Medpac features Medpod’s pioneering telediagnostics and supports our commitment to providing innovative health care solutions. Together, we are helping to transform the way care is delivered – enhancing patient outcomes and extending the reach of health care professionals.”
About the Medpac offering from Henry Schein and Medpod
The companies designed the Medpac as a compact, backpack version of MobileDoc. Equipped with real-time video and audio capabilities, Medpac enables clinical and lab data streaming on cellular and Wi-Fi networks. Its connectivity capabilities help to facilitate continuous patient monitoring and enable access to essential medical data.
Exclusively distributed by Henry Schein, Medpac offers use in a range of applications in a range of locations. That includes ambulatory surgery centers, emergency medical services, expansion of off-site point of care, health professional storage areas, house calls, military, schools and worksites.
Medpac provides healthcare professionals with a selection of medical instruments along with an exam camera. It features a tablet available in a 12- or 17-inch screen, hot-swappable batteries and a headphone jack for stethoscope monitoring.
The companies say their offering is now available for healthcare professionals.
“Medpod Inc. is proud to introduce Medpac, a game-changing and even more portable version of our MobileDoc solution,” said Jack Tawil, chair and CEO at Medpod Inc. “Medpod’s goal has always been to mobilize health care delivery. Engineered with years of both provider and patient feedback, and following an intense design process, our engineers have managed to pack significant diagnostic capabilities into a backpack that only a few short years ago required a utility truck to transport.”
