Today, we are living in an era where every month thousands of patients are admitted to the hospitals, the ways of looking abroad for medical treatment is over.
What about those who cannot afford to travel even in their own countries?
What about those who might need immediate diagnosis at home?
The COVID-19 outbreak has spread its feathers of destruction around the globe with high infected caseloads and many fatalities. People with comorbidities are more prone to contracting COVID-19. Therefore, going to a hospital or clinic for treatment and diagnosis is not recommended for such people. To enable efficient care and quick diagnosis of patients with chronic illnesses, home diagnosis devices are a feasible option.
The need for pre-hospital diagnostics and point-of-care solutions that can be used even at homes is exponentially growing. COVID-19 showed us that we must provide a solution that can prevent over-crowding hospitals. The biggest challenges that Health Care professionals are facing
- The lack of monitoring the patients after they are released from the hospital.
- Up to 25% of care and rehabilitation expenses can be saved by providing an automated and connected early diagnostics system.
- Easy to use affordable diagnostics tool focusing on monitoring of critical injuries (brain, spine, kidney, liver, etc.).
Hence, the broad range of clinical skills needed to be prepared for many different types of patients requires high-level clinical reasoning and decision-making skills. Prehospital care may also be conducted in difficult environments, in all kinds of weather conditions, 24 h a day, and a long way from medical support.
Imagine someone in this situation: a kid with a stomach ache or a guy with chest pain. Now imagine the diagnosis and the treatment is made without having to go all the way back to the doctor's clinic. And now, imagine that PONS can significantly cut down costs for both patients and doctors.
Patients will be able to get better, faster, and more convenient medical care and treatment as a result of easier monitoring by doctors who can do this remotely from their own homes or from remote places.
