American Well debuts '760 Cart' to bring remote specialists into hospital rooms

American Well released a new hardware product, called the American Well 760 Cart, to help hospital care teams bring remote specialists into patients' rooms.

The American Well 760 Cart, an FDA-registered Class I device, is designed for health systems running telehealth programs on American Well's software or on Cisco's infrastructure. It comprises a high-performance camera with 20-times zoom and 24/7 remote device management.

Potential use cases include telestroke, where an on-site emergency room physician connects with a remote neurologist, or intensive care unit rounding, where an on-site clinician consults with a remote intensivist at the patient's bedside.
