Safeway Stores Offering Health Care Powered by Artificial Intelligence “If we roll this out for 50% of the physicians in the United States, our platform can save Medicare on its own,” says AdviNOW CEO, James Bates.
Here is how it works:
Patients go into exam rooms on their own and a computerized program guides them through providing key physical information using FDA-approved wireless devices that can collect medical measurements such as temperature, ear, nose and throat images; chest sounds via a stethoscope; and blood pressure and blood oxygen content.
A virtual visit with a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant concludes the Akos Med Clinic appointment via telemedicine, similar to speaking with a clinician via Facetime or Skype. The clinicians, employees of AkosMD, beam into the Safeway clinics, typically from company headquarters in Glendale.
If necessary, the virtual medical staff could provide a prescription electronically. Click on the link below for the full story.AZCentral Story on Safeway Akos Clinics Powered by AdviNOW]]>
