A robot uses high-definition monitors, high-speed components, and wireless communications, and serves as a telehealth media center to give doctors more flexibility in treating and assisting patients remotely.

The robot will help doctors in treating, and diagnosing, new diseases such as Ebola, and assist in high-risk situations like bio-terrorism. The robot will also help doctors deal with regulatory challenges and responsibilities.

Pertexa (Ridgecrest, CA, USA), develops telehealth, and medical productivity software, and medical robotics solutions. The solution is different than similar systems on the market in that it is a “wrapper technology,” which works on multiple platforms. The solution sits on top of a healthcare institution's existing Electronic Health Record (EHR) infrastructure. The robot is named the Robotic Intelligent Telehealth Assistant (RITA).

RITA gives medical provider information technologies that are more intuitive, simpler and interoperable, but still comply with regulatory requirements.

Dr. Earl Ferguson, Medical Director of Pertexa, commented, "Providers have been waiting for information technologies that are more intuitive, simpler and interoperable."
