The Care4 Station is a walk-in kiosk with a seat and monitor unit. There is an attendant present who takes care of the station, instructs the patient on usage, helps out when necessary and sanitizes all equipment and the station in between patients. The monitor connects patients to doctors over real-time high-definition videoconferencing with wireless technology.

 

The patient can either make an appointment online ahead of time, or simply walk in. The appointment starts as the patient logs in. The Care4 Station is equipped with a scale, a thermometer and a blood pressure cuff for taking vital signs. The patient is instructed on how to use the equipment and takes his/her own vital signs which are then sent directly to the doctor. All information, including patient videos, prescriptions, appointment scheduling and visit records are transmitted to the doctor and can be entered into the patient’s electronic health record as well
