RNK Products, Inc. is advancing remote auscultation with the launch of its Auscultation Anywhere cloud solution. Until Auscultation Anywhere, there was no remote auscultation product available to provide peer-to-peer connections across NAT boundaries. Now remote auscultation, the act of listening to body sounds with a stethoscope where the clinician and patient are in separate locations, can easily expand from the institutional telemedicine market to either the home, retail or worksite markets.

The Auscultation Anywhere cloud solution builds on the currently available PCP-1 Chest Piece and Streaming Stethoscope over IP (sSOIP) software by providing enhanced networking capability. A Telemedicine Communication Server (TMCS) facilitates direct peer-to-peer connections between clinicians and patients across NAT boundaries – from a hospital, a clinic, a physician’s office or a physician’s home to patients at other clinics or in their homes. A Stethoscope User Database stores network information on users and feeds that information to the TMCS. No patient medical data passes through the TMCS or Stethoscope User Database.

Because Auscultation Anywhere uses separate IP connections from the video; it can be deployed alongside any video conferencing system. The PCP-1 Stethoscope and sSOIP software covers all FDA concerns and isolates FDA compliance issues from the video.

The PCP-1 Stethoscope is the most patient friendly, cost-effective telephonic stethoscope on the market. Founder C.R. (Rich) Abbruscato who has been in the telemedicine industry for over 18 years and holds the most patents for telephonic stethoscopes says, “For telemedicine, a stethoscope has to be exceptionally user friendly for the patient as well as for the clinician, so they both have a positive experience.”

Having successfully completed beta tests, the Auscultation Anywhere cloud solution including the patented PCP-1 stethoscope is now available for value added resellers to add to their telemedicine stations.

Founded in 2003, RNK Products, Inc. specializes in electronic and telephonic stethoscopes, under both its own label Telehealth Technologies and under private labels used by its Value-Added Resellers. RNK offers a range of stethoscopes to fit any institutional or home telemedicine program.
