Built by physicians for the ideal patient encounter.
We’re doctors who sought to add telemedicine to our practice, but the leading systems didn't work the way we wanted to - as physicians.
Inspired by surgeons making their own tools, we decided to create our own cart.
First, we assembled the most cost-effective and reliable components that mirror how we practice. Next we integrated them into the Access Cart and Access Station, and now we support them with a 24/7 team of health IT professionals and clinical sense of urgency.
Everything is professional grade yet HIPAA-compliant, clinician-tested, and doctor-approved.
Start up is effortless. Nurses keep hands free with no clicks required to start an encounter. The encounter will also resume instantly even after a brief loss of connection, as when using the elevator between floors.
Sleek, High Resolution Display
Great care starts with great communication, and that begins with eye contact. The only Apple-based cart on the market, the Apple iMac® instantly puts staff and patients at ease, with a sleek aesthetic, best-in-class display, booming audio, and superior reliability and durability. On the screen, the physician is life-size, with their eyes at normal height.
HD Camera WITH PHYSICIAN REMOTE CONTROL
The camera is inverted to allow physicians to remotely pan, tilt, and zoom to examine the patient without nurses having to move the cart. From dilation of pupil to legs and feet, even printed medical records (our physicians can read 12-point font at 15 feet), or other diagnostic equipment in the room. By simply looking at the screens, you remove the need to plug in any other devices to the cart. It's just one less thing you have to worry about during moments of critical care.
Easy to Maneuver
Powerful technology in a small, rugged package with hospital grade reel casters and a three-sided handlebar at shopping cart height. Perfect for small rooms where space, especially during emergent care, is at a premium.
SECURE HIPAA-COMPLIANT VIDEO
All encounters are encrypted (TLS 1.2, AES 256-bit). No data is stored, and we sign a Business Associate Agreement with all clients.
Stored neatly in the cart drawer, nurses can use the digital stethoscope at the direction of the physician to listen to heart, lungs, and abdomen. Otoscope, ophthalmoscope, and other diagnostic peripherals also available.
All surfaces of the cart, drawer, and peripherals can be wiped down. The cart itself features an antimicrobial coating to combat infection by inhibiting the growth of bacteria and mildew.
Two ways to connect – Wi-Fi and included data plan. Two display options – iMac® and iPad® (also with included data plan on alternate carrier). Plus, an integrated uninterrupted power supply which enables encounters to continue when in motion for up to 45+ minutes.
24/7 Support With A Clinical Urgency
Our US-based health IT professionals are accountable to clinicians and trained for telemedicine support. They answer the call with a clinical sense of urgency because minutes matter, and failures to remain calm, communicate clearly and follow protocol affect patient outcomes. Current resolution time is < 3 minutes.
Viability, warranty and replacement
Collaborating with your IT team, we determine that the cart will perform in each care setting prior to launch. Two-year warranty and free advance replacement for any defective component, with available advance replacement program for damaged components.
By leveraging the pan/tilt/zoom camera there is no need to integrate with other peripherals or systems. Physicians document directly in your EMR. Only enterprise Wi-Fi required with minimal bandwidth needed.
Robust remote monitoring tools ensure 99.999 up-time. The Access Physicians support team handles all technical support, upgrades, patches, and performs monthly scheduled maintenance.
