Description of Services:

We are a truly mobile integrated healthcare service company. We provide SaaS, franchise opportunities, cost effective telemedicine cases and other devices. Patient care is and always will be our main focus. Our simple patient centered iOS/PC platform was developed to serve as the "go to" place for healthcare. Patients have immediate access to their clinicians and can establish specialty follow-up immediately on our filters/location services portal. We take the "Community Paramedicine" concept, designed for Medicare readmission prevention and chronic disease/high utilizer evaluation to the extreme. We uniquely package it to immediately evaluate ALL populations of our communities so that the entire population shares in its savings. We are the first to utilize advanced telemedicine devices and software to advance the concept of community paramedicine utilizing low bandwidth technology. We have an Hospital Menu of Point of Care lab tests resulted in less than 30 minutes. Our mobile medical units are hospitals on wheels equipped with not only labs, but the ability to obtain x-ray and ultrasound studies right inside the vehicle. We use experienced nurses, paramedics, and techs sent directly to the patient allowing our physicians and midlevels to optimize the cost-effectiveness of our model. Since they are centrally located to provide medical direction and treatment, they can easily see multiple patients within a given time frame at multiple locations. We are able to send the most appropriate providers and testing (x-rays and lab equipment) based on the initial interview of the patient through our telemedicine portal. In summary, we are the first to move light years beyond the basic videoconference with the technology/equipment to allow Doctors to "virtually" return to the home/location of the patient. This is the foundation of Astia, originating from Hestia, the Greek Goddess of Hearth and Home.
