NuPhysicia and Atlantic Offshore Medical Services Raise the Bar on Remote Medical Care

NuPhysicia, Inc., the premier global telemedicine technology and care provider, announces its deployment of telemedicine and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) with its latest partner, Atlantic Offshore Medical Services (AOMS), throughout locations in Canada.

AOMS is rolling these advancements out at ten AOMS operated facilities throughout Canada. After researching multiple telemedical solutions it determined NuPhysicia’s EMR and telemedical technology are the best fit for the environments it serves. The longest standing occupational medicine provider in Canada, AOMS has been working to service drilling contractors, operators and other industries for more than 35 years.

While AOMS already provides the highest certification level of specialty trained nurses and paramedics to patient sites, with immediate physician diagnosis through telemedicine, AOMS is now able to enhance its level of patient care. On-site medical staff can now “beam in” a physician for diagnosis and treatment. Doctors and patients can see and speak to each other, and special medical scopes allow the doctor to listen to the patient’s heart and lungs as well as see inside the patient’s ears, nose, and throat, enhancing care without the wait or risk of a medical evacuation.

By implementing the EMR system, healthcare workers are able to seamlessly share charts, vitals and medical information for the best possible remote care and oversight. The remote site medical staff electronically documents care and this is available immediately for the physician to review. The physician then notes all diagnosis in order to make sure the patient record is captured for all future care.

“The missing component to the other systems we looked at was the seamless integration of an electronic medical record system designed for remote care along with telemedical technology,” says Liam O’Shea, global director of AOMS. “We have gone live on our largest sites first due to the advantages we see and now have 22 doctors and 50 paramedics and nurses using the system.”

“The partnership with AOMS is structured to provide the best possible care for patients in North America,” said Michael Szafron, senior vice president of global sales and marketing strategies. “AOMS is able to use our services throughout Canada while NuPhysicia provides direct care for patients through its services within the United States and its offshore regions.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
