Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT)
In the U.S., upper respiratory complaints are a high volume, routine diagnosis in healthcare – 200+ million episodes per year and over 26% of emergency room visits are ENT related.
These are often diagnosed sight unseen (without the use of a flexible or rigid scope) in the emergency department, urgent care center, or physician office. Symptoms diagnosed as ordinary often go undetected and result in complications and unnecessary risk to patients (e.g. laryngeal cancer, vocal cord lesions, or laryngopharyngeal reflux). Patients are also often prescribed unnecessary antibiotics.
In the emergency room or urgent care setting, acute airway problems can require an immediate endoscopy yet the specialist has to be called in. The wait for an on-call specialist to arrive or for a referral to see the specialist on another day delays essential medical care and creates extra steps.
Visually inspecting a patient’s airways using fiber optic video scopes with expertise from a board-certified ENT physician removes guesswork and increases the quality of patient care.
Cystoscopy is one of the most common procedures in the Urologic practice with multiple indications.
Urology’s continued advancement into the field of telemedicine would be greatly propelled by the development of a system for remote cystoscopy without sacrificing quality of care provided to our patients.
We present a method for remote cystoscopy to be performed by any healthcare provider under the direct supervision of a Urologist in real time.

I have had the privilege of using the Quintree telecommunication system which showed me that physician to physician telemedicine is extremely powerful. The ease and simplicity of using the connection device and the Quintree web application speaks for itself. Quintree offers great, quick, perfect patient care at a click of a button.
