San Diego’s telmedx Begins Operations at Janssen Labs
San Diego CA – February 18, 2013 – After being named one of the top three Most Promising Companies of 2013 at the recent Personalized Medicine World Conference in Silicon Valley, San Diego-based telemedicine company telmedx has now moved its operations to Janssen Labs in the Torrey Pines area of San Diego.
Janssen Labs is located at Janssen Research & Development, LLC. in San Diego, CA. Janssen Labs is a 32,000-square-foot life science innovation center, located within the Janssen Research & Development, LLC’s West Coast Research Center. The labs provide a flexible lab environment for start-up companies pursuing new technologies and research platforms to advance medical care.
With telmedx, a doctor or other medical professional can connect to a patient’s mobile phone for a live video and audio session using an Internet browser on a computer or tablet. In addition to delivering high quality audio with simultaneous live video, the medical professional can also control the camera in the mobile phone to capture high resolution still images to see greater detail of a medical situation needed to make an initial patient assessment, diagnose a condition, manage follow up care and health status monitoring, or confirm compliance with protocols and procedures in clinical trials.
“We are excited about the opportunity to operate within the collaborative environment at Janssen Labs in San Diego,” stated Richard Anglin, CEO of telmedx. “The unique technology of telmedx has a wide range of applications in the delivery of medical care and also in verifying protocols and procedures for life sciences and drug development companies. Operating out of Janssen Labs will be a tremendous benefit to help telmedx continue demonstrating the value of our platform to healthcare providers throughout the world.”
“With an increasing demand to remotely care for patients and manage clinical trials with fewer resources, the telmedx mobile video medicine system is a perfect fit today for helping doctors make remote assessments more easily, for accountable care organizations to monitor patients and prevent readmissions, and for drug development companies to confirm protocols and procedures for clinical trial with high quality, live video interactions from a Web browser to a mobile phone,” continued Anglin.
telmedx provides live high quality medical-grade video™ and audio from patient mobile phones over an Internet browser for remote diagnosis, clinician triage, follow-up care, drug and protocol compliance and health status monitoring without a patient visit to a brick-and-mortar medical facility. The company’s HIPAA and HITECH-compliant telemedicine platforms help reduce costs, manage risk and create new revenue opportunities for healthcare providers. Our revolutionary technology has re-invented the house call and made it better, and telmedx is poised to help deliver greater access to healthcare throughout the world. telmedx headquarters are located at Janssen Labs at Janssen Research & Development, LLC in San Diego, CA.
