The Remote Physical Examination Revolution
The biggest obstacle in telemedicine has to do with the limitations in doctors’ ability to perform a patient’s physical examination remotely. GalenSense, a compact hardware model that complements the GalenClinic digital health platform, is an advanced health kit that is extremely easy to use, allowing doctors to remotely obtain the physiological data they need by giving instructions to their patients. The examination process, which begins with a remote interview over GalenClinic, continues by obtaining a patient’s physiological data through GalenSense, which connects directly to the mobile application. In this way, doctors can view and record all a patient’s physiological symptoms as if they were right beside them. And thanks to its smart instructions, the device ensures that all of the data it collects is complete and accurate.
