Leading UK healthcare supplier, DP Medical, has been named as the exclusive distributor of the pioneering Enhanced Visual Assessment (EVA) System for forensic colposcopy in the UK.
The Surrey-based organisation has been selected by MobileODT to deliver its groundbreaking EVA System – a mobile, affordable, and network-connected medical device, which helps forensic nurses conduct Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) exams across the United States, and now enters the UK market.
The EVA System is currently used in 27 states across the United States, with over twenty-percent of New York State hospitals conducting forensic examinations using the connected device to document cases of sexual violence and domestic abuse.
The EVA System enables secure collaboration and case sharing between healthcare providers and the appropriate authorities, and ensures proper reporting and chain-of-custody record keeping.
The portable, lightweight, and wireless features of the EVA System has enabled it to be used extensively across rural areas, expanding the abilities of first responders to cases of sexual violence to conduct high-quality and properly documented examinations no matter where the abuse is reported.
The EVA System complements DP Medical’s MediScan workstation – a secure capture and archive system which records, stores and encrypts patients’ gynaecological examinations for analysis.
Rob Atkinson, Managing Director of DP Medical, said: “The EVA System is a truly innovative device that is set to revolutionise forensic work. The system enables healthcare professionals to conduct expert-level examinations using a mobile device, from wherever they’re working, quickly and easily.
“We ourselves are proud to have brought our own MediScan innovation to the market and this new system complements that perfectly. Our partnership with MobileODT marks a step forward not just in the level of technology available for cervical screening in the UK and Ireland, but also a step closer to making the Mediscan workstation completely portable.”
Using a mobile application, the EVA System allows users to captures video and images of the full body surface and external cavities at the point-of-care, with digital patient forms, image filters and annotation capabilities.
Additionally, the device allows unlimited information storage and electronic medical records (EMR) integration, as well as the ability to securely engage in remote clinical discussions with peers, supervisors and, in the event of forensic examinations, law enforcement, using the EVA Systems’s Secure Collaboration service.
Rob added: “We’re thrilled to be working with MobileODT to bring the system to the UK and Ireland markets, and we’re confident that it will have a huge impact on both healthcare professionals and patients themselves, too.”
Ariel Beery, the CEO of MobileODT, said: “We are extremely excited to be working with DP Medical to expand access to forensic colposcopy, and ensure that every victim, everywhere, has the same access to a quality examination. We look forward to working with DP Medical to adapt the EVA System to the particular needs of SARCs to ensure that every SARC has the tools and capabilities they require to extend ever-available care to their community.”
