Ultrasound technology continues to rapidly evolve to become smaller, more affordable, and user-friendly. A new category of smaller handheld devices has recently emerged whose main advantages include increased portability and affordability. The incorporation of such a device into the initial physical examination could potentially lead to faster diagnosis and treatment. Early applications of portable ultrasound have been in the field of echocardiography and battlefield trauma, and some concern exists about whether image quality is being unsafely compromised to achieve greater portability

Powered by calibrated sound frequencies, this non-invasive scanning solution safely diagnoses the physiological condition of most vital organs and tumors in real time. Since the first clinical use of the echocardiogram in the 1953, to the introduction of the ultrasound in 1966 to OB/GYN medicine, to the success of the Doppler ultrasound's blood flow imaging in the 1970s, significant advancements in ultrasound technology continue to challenge earlier forms of imaging modalities like its radiation-based counterparts (like the isotope scan, X-rays and CT Scans). But much more than the ultrasound's safety benefits and performance upgrades is its ability to evolve into a portable hand-held "diagnostic lab on-the-go". This makes it the ideal imaging base for the many remote demands and for the new generation of health responders.


Bard Diagnostic Imaging founded this concept in 1989, when a patient in Queensland (Australia) who frequently traveled to NYC on business would see Dr. Bard regularly to monitor his prostate. Dr. Bard would work with the patient's physician in his home town through a secure communications link and private file-sharing portal. These tools are now refined as private VIDEO TELECONFERENCING, TELEMEDICINE, DROPBOX.

Scan yourself from home (or in your location of choice)! Thanks to the advent of portable (and more affordable) traning-friendly ultrasound devices, THE SALSCAN PROGRAM formalized the concept of "Personal Scanning"- allowing the patient direct access to a portable ultrasound and be guided via online video w/ Dr. Bard on the other side, viewing your scans in real-time.

Thanks to the advancements of our web-based communication tools, overseas collaboration via electronic FILE-SHARING has been streamlined to empower and facilitate the world of patient care. Due to the CoronaVirus pandemic, many patients are not able to fly or travel to NYC to get scanned in Dr. Bard's main facility. For those situations, we have an option to partner with an imaging facility near the patient who carries similar technologies and trained imaging technicians to conduct the Point-of-Care scanning process. Meanwhile, Dr. Bard is the lead reviewer (remote OVERREADER) whereby he has the final analysis on all the scans. This process maintains access to Dr. Bard's care and diagnostic capacity without visiting his office physicially. In this process, Dr. Bard directs the scanning partner about using his specific scanning process (ie. frequency settings, choice of probe(s), the type of devices etc.) ensuring that Dr. Bard gets the images he needs to assess you correctly- from any location.

Virtualization is a perfect marriage between patient care and digital medicine, where DIGITAL ULTRASOUND responds to the future of emergency diagnostics and its ability to respond quickly, safely (radiation free) and is completely non-invasive. For the patient (plan 1) portable models have been designed easy to learn with a remote trainer. This is the perfect formula for satisfying the many critical care situations where the reality of distance can be addressed with technology.

The earliest form of virtualization referred to a non-physical version of hardware, storage devices, and computer network resources, much like web hosting or cloud-based solutions. In Dr. Bard's medical imaging orbit, virtualization incorporates key elements of Telemedicine, Secure File-Accessing, Real-Video Conferencing and Dynamic Data Sharing between medical professionals. "30 years deep into the internet, our communication has finally caught up to allow us to work on any patient at any time from any location. The security aspect and high-speed exchange for conferencing has (finally) been perfected to make this a reliable platform for medicine. I have found myself to be “remoted” everywhere from surgeries to cruise ships to European clinical trial conferences... virtual technology really streamlines so many critical aspects of patient care!"

One of the current updates in patient care is the use of web-based technology to expand doctor-patient care and communication - what is known as TELEMEDICINE. Now, the standard office visit can be a physical experience or a virtual consultation with the use of video conferencing from any geographic area. Patients can enjoy the benefits of the complete elimination of costly travel time while preventing any potential viral exposure from public transportation of sitting in a busy waiting room.

By definition, TeleMedicine is the implementing of any health-related services and information through the use of electronic and telecommunication technologies. It allows for REMOTE patient and clinician contact, care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring, and remote admissions. By design, TeleMed systems are used as an alternative means of communication intended to provide a more streamlined use of the doctors' and patients' time. By communicating on a video-conferencing platform, TeleMedicine allows the physician to easily share files, records and imaging on the same screen that the doctor and patient are conducting a private consultation. Providers who use TeleMed solutions appreciate the ability to reach more patients from any part of the world and schedule more patients at one given time. This could easily result in the growth of the users' medical practice.

Our current global health concerns have greatly added to the need for better safety precautions- especially in caring for the many immuno-compromised patients. The medical community has the benefit of a wide array of web-based options for a digital health alternative.

To date, many new advancements have been added to this growing concept of remote patient care - including REAL-TIME INTERACTIVE SERVICES or "mHEALTH", REMOTE MONITORING (RPM), VIRTUAL CONSULTS (a form of live video conferencing) and STORE-AND-FORWARD (also known as 'asychronous video'). Whether it's to reduce medical costs, save time or stay safe from potential exposure to health risks, methods of patient care continues to evolve toward better performance and efficiency.

Today, doctors can more easily implement more advanced tools to conduct patient care, diagnostics and support treatment methods using DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY. The TeleMedScan helps streamline the way you diagnose patients with advanced scanning solutions that can bring a new level of efficiency and time management.

As TeleMed Partner, your practice is now open to connecting with your patients and other doctors digitally in real-time. 

You can:
- deliver and share information through a private web portal
- conference with your patient(s) or colleagues through real-time video chats
- visually present any pertinent files, scans, videos and other medical reference materials pertaining to your patient
- efficiently work with more patients from anywhere (globally) in less time


Regardless of geographic location, TeleMed Partners can make patient collaboration and co-treating happen. There are a number of key ways that we can build a virtual bridge for TeleMed Partnering:

TELE-CONSULT: You may already have most of the technology to establish Tele-Consults with your patients. Through the use of various Video conferencing solutions, our I.T. partners can help you set up a fully interactive in-office conference studio. Depending on your technology, tele-consult can be a robust solution to practically replace much of what your patients go through on an in-house visit. Tele-Consult can include: software for complete interactive PATIENT FORMS, private Audio or Video-chat solutions, file sharing access and more.

VIRTUAL OFFICE VISITS: Covert the many 10-minute patient visits that often takes up more time than expected. Aside from the consultation and writing prescriptions, a wide range of purposes to an office visit can now be replaced digitally- such as post surgical care meetings, chronic disease management and support for senior patient care.

• PRIVATE FILE SHARING: Through the use of online private portals or proprietary file sharing software, we can transfer patient files to each other. As all files are not in digital form (or can easily be converted), file transfer and sharing between established fellow providers can be made possible. Digital file sharing is highly instrumental to speeding up the process of patient care and billing.

TELE-RADIOLOGY: Also known as TeleScan, we can help our partners acquire and set up an affordable/portable imaging capability for your patients and send imaging files to our diagnostic center for a full and comprehensive reading by our certified radiologists. We are ready to receive and access all file types including MRI, X-RAYS, ULTRASOUND and submit a detailed report on the patient.


Our growing community of TELEMED PARTNERS are medical practitioners, pain healers, specialists and health centers who are supporters of the positive use of current communication and imaging technologies to widen their ability to help their patients. Creating a united alliance of like-minded caregivers have helped assemble the information that we now have to help one another with their patients and ours. Together, we aspire to offer more ways for patients to get access to the help they need while employing efficient and safer alternatives to receiving professional health care.

Chronic conditions like lung and heart disease, lupus, and diabetes directly affect the immune system. Also patients diagnosed with auto-immune disorders and cancers (including those currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments) can leave a person immuno-compromised. This makes them a very high risk of contracting deadly viruses like the Coronavirus.

Anyone with weakened immune systems are highly advised to stay indoors and prevent any contact with the public. To battle this pandemic the right way, we all need a strong IMMUNE SYSTEM to recover from contamination. Also, ask any of your doctors if they subscribe to TeleMedicine as an alternative to any upcoming office visits.

Within the past several decades, the medical community has been put into overdrive to come up with new solutions (or modify existing ones) to implement safer, more efficient and cost-effective ways of working with the public. From the global demand for active medical personnel, to the rising wave of safety concerns that of the many at-risk patients, we face a great need to upgrade patient care.

Elderly patients or those with chronic conditions may find it difficult (and even precarious) to travel to their doctors' office and sit in a waiting room with other sick people with unknown conditions. Advancing this scenario to an electronic doctor's visit or TELEMEDICINE is an available reality that can easily address this concern. SO MUCH CAN BE DONE FROM HOME!
