The AVTEQ TMP-600 Telemedicine Cart was developed in conjunction with BT Conferencing and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC). TTUHSC is a pioneer of telemedicine and operates a comprehensive Polycom telepresence and videoconferencing infrastructure that serves 108 counties in West Texas. TTUHSC’s telemedicine program brings specialist care to community health centers, schools and other facilities in some of the most remote West Texas towns care that would only be available in clinics and hospitals located several hours away. The telemedicine program also provides care to inmates in more than a dozen Texas correctional facilities, preserving public safety and efficiently meeting healthcare requirements.
When TTUHSC identified their need for a telemedicine cart, a stock solution was not available on the market that suited the program. It was necessary to source a mobile telemedicine cart that had a smaller footprint conducive to the limited space in the rural clinics, yet offered substantial and lockable storage to accommodate the essential medical equipment needed to provide comprehensive patient care.
On the university’s behalf, BT Conferencing approached AVTEQ to custom develop a mobile telemedicine cart which included all of the program’s desired features and specifications, paired with the distinguished quality that AVTEQ has become known for in the industry.
