LG Electronics announced its first joint solution with digital healthcare enablement leader Amwell, designed to expand the boundaries of digital health innovation and address a major issue faced by hospitals across the country – workforce shortages.
Showcased at HLTH 2022, the Carepoint TV Kit, by LG and powered by the Amwell Converge platform, leverages existing LG healthcare TVs, a brand of TVs in hospitals and healthcare facilities, in patient rooms to allow providers to remotely engage, monitor and discharge patients, thereby reducing healthcare professionals' workload.
The new solution, called the Carepoint TV Kit 200L, is engineered to expand clinicians and care teams reach through virtual rounding, nursing, e-sitting, and isolation room monitoring. This enables tasks like patient admission and discharge, medical reconciliation, care coordination with patients, family members and other providers, and patient monitoring all to be done from one convenient location, resulting in increased efficiencies, reduced drive-time and rounding time, maximized resources, and optimized time and space.
LG and Amwell first announced a collaboration in March 2022 as part of LG's strategic vision for creating new socially impactful products and services for the next generation. LG Electronics is the longtime largest provider of smart TVs for hospital patient rooms in the United States. Now the global electronics giant is further increasing its focus on innovation and expanding its healthcare portfolio. As a dedicated partner, LG is committed to working with Amwell and its Converge platform to help deliver on its promise of healthcare innovation.
