VSee TeleMedicine Software announces robotic PTZ camera control support for the PTZOptics camera line

In this video Paul Richards, Dir of Business Development for PTZOptics, reviews the latest telemedicine instruments with Dr. Anne Chang of VSee. This inside look at the technology doctors will be using to perform remote telehealth appointments demonstrates the following healthcare tools in a online patient survey:

  • Calling patient from private Waiting Room queue
  • PTZ camera control for Telemedicine
  • Blood pressure reading
  • Iris scope / Dermascope
  • Stethoscope (needs to add sound)
  • X-ray sharing
  • Lab Results sharing

VSee Lab LogoVSee is the largest video telemedicine platform, combining HIPAA secure video chat, EMR screen sharing, and medical device streaming. VSee has recently partnered with PTZOptics a US-based camera manufacturer to integrate Pan, Tilt, Zoom camera control into its secure telemedicine platform.

The PTZOptics USB camera line supports absolute UVC control allowing VSee to control mechanical PTZ functions through a simple USB connection. Doctors working remotely can zoom into particular areas of interest during a telemedicine call, such as for telestroke, burn, and trauma cases.  

VSee also has a simple Virtual Waiting Room; advanced features include scheduling, call routing/triage, online payment, ePrescribe, and FitBit integration. Building complete camera control for Telemedicine into these platforms opens new functionality for robotic telemedicine.

PTZOptics encourages third parties like VSee to integrate camera controls into their software by providing open source controls, SDK’s and various standard protocols. Companies such as NewTek, RocoSoft, and Zoom Video Communications have already integrated similar projects for native camera control in their video communication programs. VSee is the first telemedicine-focused software to integrate secure camera controls with PTZOptics.

HIPAAVSee has been used by Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie as well as President Obama’s security team during his Inauguration. PTZOptics robotic camera control will help extend the reach of telemedicine everywhere.

Hello Telemedicine & Healthcare Professionals!

Today we wanted to review an important case study sweeping the healthcare industry. That’s right Telehealth aka Telemedicine. Wikipedia defines Telehealth as ” the delivery of health-related services and information via telecommunications technologies. Telehealth could be as simple as two health professionals discussing a case over the telephone or as sophisticated as doing robotic surgery between facilities at different ends of the globe.”

Pertexa Healthcare Technologies, Inc, the California-based telemedicine organization reports they have chosen PTZOptics mechanical PTZ cameras for their primary telehealth soltuion RITA (Remote Intelligent TeleHealth Assistant). These telemedicine robots use cutting edge advancements in telehealth technology to take full PTZ camera control remotely from their secure telemedicine software. The specialties will include dermatology, cardiology, pain management ,OB/GYN , orthopedic and primary care.

PTZOptics USB camera line provides UVC control permitting Pertexa to control the automated PTZ controls through a straightforward USB connection with RITA. This permits specialists working remotely to intertact progressively with patients while zooming into specific regions of interest for telemedicine professionals.

RITA permits specialists to remotely assess the seriousness of a sickness or harm and focus the best game-plan for healthcare professionals. Doctors control the camera to analyze patients remotely and have prompt access to electronic well being records, EKG results, circulatory strain and oxygen readings, and other gear used to therapeutically analyze a damage or disease.
