The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) is offering customers on-site automated healthcare with the arrival of a hi-tech virtual health care station by the Florida based OnMed. It is a double unit that can serve two patients at once. It is located next to N-3 in the North Hall of the Convention Center and will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on convention days.

The OnMed station is a self-contained medical unit that uses patented technologies to directly connect patients to healthcare professionals who use advanced FDA cleared diagnostics to conduct a medical exam and, if necessary, dispense prescription medications on the spot. Inside, the station high-definition cameras provide not just face-to-face interaction between patients and board-certified doctors, but also assist with actual examinations, offering care-givers a close-up look at everything from a sore throat to a tiny mole.
„We are pleased to offer convenient technology to our valued convention customers and meeting attendees.“

"We are pleased to partner with OnMed to offer this convenient, innovative technology to our valued convention customers and meeting attendees, providing immediate access to a healthcare professional without ever leaving the building," said Brian Yost, chief operating officer of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA.)

Privacy glass and directional speakers safeguard patient confidentiality during visits, and record storage is HIPAA compliant. After every patient visit, the station is thoroughly cleaned using high-output ultraviolet surface and ionized air sanitization. Highly reflective surfaces, even under the seating area, allow the UV lighting to sanitise the smallest crevices.
