How to choose the right telemedicine cart and telehealth equipment for your facility

Choosing the right telemedicine cart and telehealth equipment can be challenging to many. Budget concerns, complexity, and treatment power must fit YOUR needs. Certain telehealth vendors require you to use their carts and equipment while iDocsWeb allows users to choose their own equipment as well as repurpose the equipment they already own. In this article, we examine telemedicine carts (telecarts) and telehealth equipment such as the camera and digital medical input devices. 

"I remember seeing one quote that was in excess of $15,000. I asked myself, who has that kind of budget for a skilled nursing facility? I knew there had to be a better option."

Keep in mind that as costs rise, generally, so does complexity. While many flashy carts look good on paper, their real world application does not lend well to Long Term Care / Skilled Nursing. It is important to recognize the value of low-complexity operation. Often times, the lowest cost solution is also the easiest to operate. We recommend starting your telemedicine / telehealth program with the following options:
