The Peoria, Ill.-based Illinois Neurological Institute, a provider of clinical care, research and education in neurological illness, announced that it had selected Orion Township-based Jems Technology to provide tele-stroke detection.
Using JEMS products, INI will have access to secure, real-time video, delivered to handheld devices.
Jems Technology’s HIPAA-compliant and encrypted tele-stroke detection application helps physicians provide consultations from anywhere in the world. Via a smart phone, a remote physician can talk to an attending practitioner while viewing real-time, live video.
“We have been searching for a solution to provide immediate stroke evaluations for two years, and have not found one until now,” said David Wang, Director of the INI Stroke Network. “Other solutions, including personal computers or laptops, are cumbersome and impractical. Jems Technology allows our physicians immediate access to a patient for full stroke evaluation via the mobile phone they already carry.”
“INI is a leader in neurological illness and recognizes that technology holds the key to better medicine,” said Kevin Lasser, CEO of JEMS Technology. “INI clearly understands the need to immediate stroke evaluation, where time is of the essence. Jems Technology bridges that gap between consulting physicians and patient diagnosis via a reliable, real-time, interactive application.”
Jems Technology’s application will be easily implemented within INI’s current IT infrastructure. The plug and play operation doesn’t require new firewall ports or static IP. It delivers both wireless and wired connectivity as well as automatic updating.
Components of the INI date back more than 30 years, but the institute was organized as a hospital within OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in 2000. It currently has 26 hospitals in its stroke network. For more information, visit www.ini.org.
Jems specializes in secure, encrypted real-time video to hand held devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Android and Android tablet. JEMS Technology targets health care, where access to remote live video can provide better health care practices.
