Why We Do It

Care on Location has a mission to provide urgent care and general medicine for geographic areas and populations not well-positioned for in-person service or in difficult-to-deliver situations. Our goal is NOT to replace existing healthcare, it is to help supplement it and help existing providers increase care to those who need it.

Case Study: Access to Care for the Homeless through Telehealth

The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless(CCH) provides both medical, behavioral health, and social services to thousands of individuals who have insecure housing.

However, they struggled with getting these individuals to come in for services.

Through a grant from the Colorado Health Foundation and a follow-up grant from the Office of eHealth Innovation, Care on Location designed, built, installed, and trained CCH staff to engage individuals in telemedicine wherever they are located. 

We engaged with them to address three main issues:

  1. Provide a mobile telemedicine solution that can care for people on the street.  We developed a modular standing telemedicine backpack to be worn by the Street Outreach Team that allowed for access to medical and behavioral health services from homeless encampments, under bridges and doorways, and from other medically non-traditional locations.
  2. Provide a “pop-up” telehealth clinic in CCH-operated temporary shelters such as hotels, motels, and other residential locations during the COVID pandemic to provide care in place when access to medical clinics was limited
  3. Develop a telehealth program for a rural Fort Lyon Residential Transitional Housing location that is a 4-hour drive from Denver.  A primary care physician was driving there and back weekly from Denver.  We were to establish a means of providing quality care at this rural facility while minimizing the cost and travel involved in driving the care provider to that location.

Results:

  1. MobilTEK Backpack:  A Mobile Telemedicine Examination Kit mounted to a backpack frame that included telescoping legs to deploy on nearly any terrain.  Includes a cellular-enabled tablet, a digital stethoscope, digital ears, nose, & threat camera, general exam camera, and speakerphone.  The telemedicine case has an external port to recharge all components and is fully self-powered and self-contained.  Also useful for ambulance crews, home health, visiting nurses, disaster medicine, and more.  It allows for quickly establishing care access at events, homes, libraries, fire stations, community centers, and other non-traditional locations.
  2. MobilTEK Tripod:  The MobilTEK case is mounted to a lightweight tripod system to create indoor pop-up clinics.
  3. Telemedicine Cart:  A dual-screen cart with a Pan-Tilt-Zoom camera and full equipment to conduct a full physical exam at a distance using a local assistant to facilitate the exam.  A distant medical provider is able to provide care at satellite clinics, such as the Fort Lyon location.
