SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- GlobalMed, an international provider of virtual health solutions, has announced a new partnership with DH Wireless Solutions for greater telehealth connectivity in the field. DH Wireless Solutions, a leader in Machine-to-Machine solutions, will partner its secure Portable Data Network (PDN®) with GlobalMed's telemedicine stations to extend an advanced mobile Wi-Fi hotspot in remote areas and emergency situations.

The DH Wireless PDN uses smart routers and high-gain cellular connectivity to offer a "network in a box" that can be quickly deployed by first responders, mobile command units, and crisis response and disaster relief teams delivering medical consultations on the go.

"This partnership springs from our shared commitment to enabling immediate clinical care even in the most dire and challenging situations," said Joel E. Barthelemy, GlobalMed founder and CEO. "With the PDN's extended connectivity, GlobalMed solutions enable providers to establish triage centers and communicate back to hospitals, 911 dispatch, military units and any other team. This enhanced connectivity can allow a provider to save someone's life in an area lacking cellular signals or network coverage."


Special-Pricing Available on Medical Displays, Patient Monitors, Recorders, Printers, Media, Ultrasound Machines, and Cameras.This includes Top Brands such as SONY, BARCO, NDS, NEC, LG, EDAN, EIZO, ELO, FSN, PANASONIC, MITSUBISHI, OLYMPUS, & WIDE.

Before the partnership, both companies worked with Verizon and shared common customers. At the time, GlobalMed equipment relied on Verizon's own mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, but needed something more rugged and capable in the field. Verizon suggested DH Wireless join GlobalMed at Operation Convergent Response, a live scenario event that puts the latest crisis response innovations in first responders' hands to help save lives. By enacting staged field exercises, such as a flood scenario or a highway pileup, they tested the PDN with the GlobalMed Transportable Exam Station from different connectivity points and devices.

After this event, DH Wireless also participated with GlobalMed in Operation Bushmaster, a mock battlefield exercise for medical students at the Uniformed Services University. Darren Basch, DH Wireless Solutions Director of Business Development, explained that they successfully tested the paired solutions in multi-application medical platoon scenarios. From trauma tents to two-track gravel roads with med-Humvees and even extending out to the helipad, good connectivity allowed important digital-data to transmit in real time.

"All this connectivity in one box allows you to essentially create a portable EOC triage center," Basch said. "Pairing GlobalMed's world-class telemedicine solutions with DH Wireless Solution's leading IoT communication cases is the foundation for a smart, solid partnership that will benefit the whole medical and healthcare industry as mobile technology advances."
