RealWear China (a joint venture with RealWear, Inc.) have taken several positive, proactive steps.
Over the last several days engineers from Tencent, one of the world’s most valuable technology companies, have come together virtually and worked with full focus to help address the growing business impact in China.
Local clinical proctors are not always available when a situation requires them. Healthcare system costs can rise due to staffing or travel of proctors, which can also result in a delay in care.
RealWear’s teleproctoring solution allows real time, and asynchronous, recording from the provider’s perspective to allow first-hand observation, reducing the need for proctors to be on-site at all times and also reducing delay in care for the patient.
The state of medicine and healthcare is evolving at an exponential pace, making knowledge acquisition a serious challenge. Healthcare providers require information using a multitude of communication methods, as well as from peer expertise.
With an asynchronous, or “store and forward,” recording capability, new surgical techniques and procedures can be disseminated quickly. Real time streaming can also assist providers during patient rounds with off-site specialists, aiding in more accurate and timely care to the patient.
It takes up to 3 minutes and body contact for traditional temperature taking techniques. This may risk injuries or infection spread to patient or practioner, especially crowded environments.
Hands-free infrared thermography helps screen for elevated body temperatures which may indicate the presence of a fever, all without requiring the use of the hands. The screener can remain mobile and protected to avoid infected parties entering clean zones by using just his voice.
Advanced Practice Clinicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians Assistants, Nurse Anesthetists, and Midwives, are a vital part of the medical systems of the future, yet they have significantly less training and experience than physicians.
The innovative use of RealWear’s HMT-1 can provide on-demand clinical support, assessment of clinical needs, and in depth, ongoing professional development through case studies and team-based learning.
With the onset of COVID-19 and related conditions, early diagnosis of emerging infections, diseases, and other time-critical conditions is vital. In many cases access to medical expertise in real time is not possible at the point of first outbreak.
RealWear’s platform allows a provider to stream, in real time, their interactions and conversations with their patient to multiple experts globally. This allows those experts to assist in early stage diagnosis and identification of potential serious health care issues, without the need for travel or time delay.

When every step in a procedure could make a difference between life or death, this telemedical solution running on HMT-1 can give an additional set of eyes on the patient, as well as two way communication and video/photo capture for the most risky of procedures.
Pre-hospital care covers any immediate need, oftentimes outside the scope of knowledge of that paramedic. The HMT allows the paramedic or first responder either workflow instructions or a live-support from the hospital to assist in the pre-hospital care.
