Telemedicine’s virtual doctor-patient consults have usually been positioned as computer (and now tablet/smartphone over Wi-Fi–American Well’s announcement earlier this month) driven. Kiosks provide an alternate model for a more detailed visit. The relatively new HealthSpot Station has secured a CMS Healthcare Innovation grant of $12.7 million to place kiosks in partnership with three Cleveland, Ohio hospital systems, including University Hospital and for Cuyahoga County employees through a partnership with MetroHealth. One of the UH kiosks is at the Friendly Inn Settlement House, a social services provider in a high-poverty neighborhood on the east side of Cleveland; visits are free for the next three months for kids between 3-18 (accompanied by a parent). The kiosks have both videoconferencing and telehealth tools, and the visit is assisted by a trained attendant. UH is studying whether the kiosk positively impacts cost of care and Emergency Room (ER/ED) visits. HealthSpot Station has enjoyed strong funding (about $10 million in Series C) but the kiosk system is still limited to a few states (previously mentioned Florida and in their home state of Ohio). The after-hours doctor visit of the future arrives in Ohio via telemedicine kiosks Previously in TTA: HealthSpot, Netsmart ally for telemedicine kiosks Also CNet on American Well’s mobile consults, For $49 a doctor will see you now.
