Sept. 6, 2012 Etats Généraux de la santé

Gostai, en collaboration avec l'ATIR (Association de Traitement de l'Insuffisance Reinale), présente les avantages de la téléprésence mobile robotique en centre de dialyse lors des Etats Généraux de la Santé. Le robot de téléprésence permet au médecin de se déplacer d'un poste de dialyse à l'autre durant la surveillance médicalisée d'une salle de dialyse, sans l'assistance du personnel paramédical. Lors des téléconsultations d'un patient non dialysé cette même indépendance par rapport au choix du champ visuel est un avantage sur la téléconsultation par vidéoconférence conventionnelle. Cet outil donne plus de souplesse à l’organisation de la présence médicale, et doit pouvoir rassurer les équipes médicales et les patients à distance des centres de compétence spécialisés.
