The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the need for autonomous healthcare as frontline physicians and medical personnel struggle to handle overloaded hospitals and overflow facilities. It is imperative to keep non-emergent patients out of emergency rooms and simultaneously empower physicians to deliver diagnoses via telemedicine.

The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) at the Baylor College of Medicine supports and funds health research that solves the challenges of human deep space exploration. The Institute gets its funding from NASA's Human Research Program.

Remote diagnostics will be required to care for astronauts in deep space yet it is incredibly relevant to quarantined populations. It assists healthcare providers see all the possible conditions a patient might have. Remote care helps patient get care while still at home.

Learn more about how VisualDx's work with TRISH is helping with remote diagnostics.
