Tampa, FL (October 15, 2019) – OnMed®, an innovative health technology company providing affordable access to quality care, today announced a partnership and first deployment of its breakthrough telemedicine station with Tampa General Hospital. Staff members now have access to the OnMed Station for virtual life-sized consultations with physicians and automated pharmaceutical services.
The OnMed Station allows users to have real-time consultations with a doctor or advanced practice provider via high definition video and audio. The station even allows doctors to prescribe and dispense hundreds of common medications through a secure, automated vault, saving users a trip to the pharmacy. For example, those who may be experiencing common ailments such as strep throat, or sinus infections can walk away with a diagnosis and antibiotic medication within minutes, not hours.
“At Tampa General Hospital, we are on a journey to becoming the safest and most innovative academic health system in America,” said John Couris, President and CEO of Tampa General Hospital. “The health and wellness of our team members are just as important to us as the patients we care for everyday at our hospital. By utilizing the OnMed Station within our employee base, we can ensure that our staff is prioritizing their wellness with access to instant care, if needed.”

"We believe telehealth is the future, but in order to see long-term success, it has to go beyond a phone call with a doctor," said Austin White, President, and CEO of OnMed. "This is why we created OnMed – to combine the clinical expertise and diagnostic capabilities of an in-person visit with the convenience and efficiency of a remote visit. Tampa General Hospital has always been a champion for innovation in health care, and we see this as the next step in a combined effort to expand the reach of care.”
