A next-generation self-service healthcare
With more than 80% of people living closer to their supermarket or pharmacy than their primary care provider, placing MEDEX SPOT cabins in retail and corporate locations across the country will encourage patients to get symptoms checked on-demand as they go about their daily work or errands.read more
The MEDEX SPOT cabin provides an oasis of calm in its soundproofed environment. The automated air sanitization and cleaning systems in the cabin assure patients that they are in a clean and healthy environment with minimal risk of contamination from other patients.read more
Because the MEDEX SPOT cabin is connected to the medical call center at a large hospital then it is easy for the Nurse Practitioner carrying out the virtual medical examination to immediately refer the patient to a pharmacy, lab (blood tests, etc.), family doctor, specialist, hospital or local doctor.read more
Near the Unmanned Micro Clinic is an E-Check-In, touchscreen terminal where patients can enter their medical history, which is linked to a SMART card, for later transfer by secure satellite to the medical call center.read more
Medical Call Center operators providing the service to the MEDEX SPOT cabin may charge up to $50 for a typical 10 minute visit. After reimbursement, co-pay fees are estimated to be $10-$20 per visit.read more

MEDEX SPOT cabin
THE MEDEX SPOT UNMANNED MICRO CLINIC (UMC)
The most advanced telehealth platform in the world, the UMC cabin is manufactured in the USA from the finest materials and its steel construction and high precision automatic door system makes it the heavyweight in remote medical care systems. MEDEX SPOT is a class above flimsy in-store kiosks which are often open to public gaze and provide wellness checks. The MEDEX SPOT Unmanned Micro Clinic is connected by satellite to a hospital Medical Call Center and provides the most comprehensive virtual medical examination facility possible in a cabin which is soundproofed, employs constant automatic sanitization of both the air, cabin surfaces and medical instruments handled by patients. The cabin has been designed to provide a clean, safe and calm environment for a patient to have a virtual medical examination even in the noisiest and busiest environments in retail settings, airports, truck stops etc. Outside the cabin is a large washable sticky mat which removes 98% - 100% of surface foot and wheel borne contamination so that patients entering the cabin on foot or in a wheelchair do not soil the floor. Cabin mounted cameras takes photographs of the floor before the patient enters and after the patient leaves the cabin. Proprietary software determines if the floor is soiled after the patient leaves the cabin, and can deduct a cleaning deposit from the patient's SMART card automatically take the cabin out of service, and send a text message to the person responsible for cleaning the cabin. The vital signs instruments in the cabin are all connected by a communications link to a MEDEX SPOT terminal at a medical call center. The instruments are divided into three classifications (a) those that have disposable user interfaces so that the patient does not have to touch the instrument i.e. EKG monitor, Spirometer, Glucose Monitor (b) those that the patient comes in contact through their clothing i.e. Blood Pressure Cuff, Seat Back Stethoscope (c) those that are handled and require cleaning after use i.e. chest stethoscope, temporal thermometer, oximeter, dermascope. The four instruments which require cleaning are housed in a proprietary system which automatically stores, deploys, retracts, and cleans the instruments after each use. The cabin is also equipped with a smoke and motion detector, which together with the ceiling mounted camera and the automatic door control system, is able to determine the unauthorized presence of a person in the cabin. The temperature, humidity, and pathogen level of the air, plus the status of all instruments and cabin security, are monitored by a remote Technical Operations Center.
Connected to Medical Professionals
NURSE PRACTITIONERS AT MEDEX SPOT TERMINALS
Patients interact directly with nurse practitioners, supervised by physicians, over high-quality audio/video -- ensuring the best possible and economical patient experience. The medical professionals have remote control over all the vital signs monitoring instruments in the MEDEX SPOT cabin and control the deployment of those instruments needed by the patient. The personal medical data which the patient enters on the E-Check-in terminal outside the cabin is linked to a SMART card. When the patient inserts the SMART card into the card reader in the cabin the patient's medical data is automatically uploaded by satellite, and displayed on the MEDEX SPOT terminal manned by the nurse practitioner. The MEDEX SPOT terminal displays the pre-entered medical record data associated with the SMART card, live data gathered from the medical instruments in the cabin, and other data accessible by the service platform. In the event of an emergency, the nurse practitioner can press a button on the terminal which will open the cabin door, dial 911 with a prerecorded voice message with the location of the MEDEX SPOT cabin, and page a local person.
