the country struggles to control healthcare costs, telemedicine arises
as one of the methods by which these costs can be reduced without
compromising the quality of care.”
-Sam Rahman, President and CEO, Correctional TeleCare Solutions
to the official web site of Correctional TeleCare Solutions. CTS
is a Pennsylvania-based company that provides comprehensive telemedicine
services to the correctional industry and populations in rural
areas. Our services consist in equipping healthcare providers with
"connected" medical devices for use in assessment, diagnosis, and
treatment of patients in other locations.
In an industry coping
with rising costs, expanding market demand, and higher customer
expectations, healthcare providers must meet the challenge of
effectively managing patient demand while delivering top quality
healthcare in the most cost-efficient manner.
The role we perform
in addressing this conundrum is that of utilizing telemedicine to bring
high quality, low-costing healthcare to areas where specialists have
not been readily available. We want to make superior services
available to the masses by reducing costs through our innovative
technology. Quality healthcare should not be a luxury. It should be the standard.
distinctive feature is our champion philosophy. A venture such as
this requires an experienced “champion” to offer communities and
healthcare providers customized and effective solutions, and to
continuously oversee programs to make sure they are working properly. A
champion devotes time and effort to make things happen: supervising,
scheduling, providing support when things go wrong, etc. CTS
guarantees this commitment. Our team is comprised of some of the
leading pioneers in modern telemedicine and we all believe in
telemedicine’s potential to improve the quality of healthcare while
reducing costs to the general public.
In addition to tackling
current healthcare problems within the United States, CTS has a
far-reaching vision of contributing to the establishment of telemedicine
on a global scale. We aim to better individual health,
community health, and human prosperity around the world. Quality
health care is a basic human right; we, at CTS, believe that
telemedicine is the solution to make it available to all.
