The future of healthcare is outside the walls of traditional facilities. Clinic in a Bag is designed to keep patients out of the hospital...without sacrificing access to high value clinical data.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 27, 2016
Clinic in a Bag is the newest and most robust examination platform from Rijuven. Designed to be deployed alongside a clinician to any point of care, Clinic in a Bag or “CIB” provides clinical decision support outside of the facility by combining a highly comprehensive suite of connected devices with cloud analysis, remote monitoring capabilities, telemedicine connectivity, EMR patient management and on-demand scheduling.
Clinic in a Bag’s mobile “app to cloud” based platform streamlines diagnosis by collecting, transmitting, and analyzing actionable clinical data beyond traditional care settings. Rijuven has positioned the platform as an efficient, flexible, and cost effective solution for high quality care extension.
Clinic in a Bag’s software component enables remote assessments and examinations to be analyzed and viewed in real time from any location. Equipped with a telemedicine portal, “CIB” allows care providers to interface patients with additional specialists from within their own network or by connecting to one of Rijuven’s regional or national telehealth partners. Patient management and EHR integration and on-demand scheduling create a seamless link between field clinicians and in-facility care.
Clinic in a Bag builds on the deep functionality of Rijuven’s patented CardioSleeve, which provides digital auscultation, 3 lead EKG, and heart failure assessment by means of Systolic Time Interval. “CIB” creates a full examination suite by adding comprehensive vitals, blood glucose, lipid panel, urinalysis, peak flow, spirometry, otoscope, lab work, and ultrasound imaging (where available). The devices sync to the cloud through an included app and tablet.
A combination of the Affordable Care Act, reimbursement changes, and consumer/payer sentiment are shifting the expectation towards preventive and value based care. A rise in ambulatory care facilities, telemedicine, and home-health demonstrate the effort to create a care continuum that keeps patients out of the hospital. Tools and innovation like Clinic in a Bag give clinicians the ability to practice in this new environment without sacrificing quality of care.

Clinic in a Bag’s ability to collect actionable clinical data remotely greatly increases the efficacy of care extension in a variety of applications: patient discharge monitoring, home health, chronic disease state management, rural and remote mobile health care, house calls, nursing homes, and disaster relief deployment. Clinic in a Bag is currently being used by sole practitioners, large provider networks, governments, and relief agencies in India, the Middle East, South Africa, and throughout the United States.
