Google Chromebooks is to come preloaded with Utah-based TruClinic’s online telemedicine system. TruClinic’s partnership with Google for Work aims to result in large-scale telemedicine coverage throughout provider networks across the globe.
 
The partnership allows hospital systems embedded access to TruClinic’s online telemedicine service via Chromebooks.
 
These portable and automatically updated laptops are preloaded with TruClinic and other healthcare applications to address patient needs throughout the entire care process. With Chrome OS at their fingertips, a referring doctor has real-time capability of following up patients’ progress via video chat, a calendaring system and a secure messaging portal.
 
Chromebooks work right out of the box, making for a hassle-free experience using telemedicine. Unlike a traditional computer, it won’t slow down over time because updates are automatic and maintenance is easy. They come with multiple layers of security to help keep them safe from viruses and malware and TruClinic’s five-tier security system is said to guarantee that sensitive patient information stays confidential.
 
“TruClinic is proud to be the universal telemedicine platform chosen to pave the way for a Chrome-centric health solution,” said TruClinic’s CEO Justin Kahn. “Google Chrome is a welcomed partner and we look forward to continued collaboration and expanding our reach.”
