Insights

There is a huge gap between willingness to use Telehealth and actual use in most medical specialties due to lack of easy to use, affordable and compatible platforms and relevant devices.

Screen Shot 2023-04-11 at 4.46.13 PM.png

Sci-Fi's vision of the future included systems that could diagnose patients instantly. Reality is getting there but the devil is in the details. 

Several digital devices and platforms today can diagnose a few conditions, but most are proprietary, expensive, difficult to use and rarely regulated for home use by consumers. 

In our opinion (and the opinion of thought-leaders at the American Telehealth Association, American Medical Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) we need platforms that support:

  • Interoperability of software and hardware to enable healthcare providers and patients to use any solutions that work with their existing systems.

  • Patient-centric design to deliver ease of use at an affordable price with regulatory clearance for “Over the Counter” home use and

  • An open ecosystem to support ever-changing and emerging 3rd Party AI, tools and devices.

Our Cause

MEDAICA is working on a cause-driven campaign under the banner of EveryBeatEveryBreath.org, to provide telehealth solutions with free stethoscopes to remote, underserved communities and disadvantaged groups.

 

In the USA, nearly 53 million people (16% of population) live more than 30 miles from a hospital or urgent care. Globally, an estimated one billion people have no access to essential health-care services.

 

The campaign aims to raise awareness of this issue and underpins MEDAICA’s Mission "to extend the reach and capability of remote care” and Vision that “Everyone in the world has affordable access to healthcare.”
