Dimitrovgrad with a mobile workstation for medical diagnostics and consultations

Dimitrovgrad municipality received a specially equipped vehicle for medical diagnostic and consultations at the spot under Smart_Med project, financed by INTERREG V - Transnational programmes. The working station for remote diagnostics is placed in a special medical vehicle, equipped with ramp for patients with reduced mobility. The specialized equipment includes: telemedicine stethoscope for data transmission; monitor for vital indicators; 12 cannel PC based ECG apparatus; ultrasonography USB gastric tube for abdominal examination; otoscope for ear diagnostic; modern X-ray machine; system for online video-conferences, etc. Currently a procedure for recruiting the medical team that will operate the specialized vehicle is underway. The project aims at assisting people in remote locations and providing them with quality medical care. Thus, the medical team will periodically visit settlements in Dimitrovgrad municipality, where on-site medical examinations will be carried out with the option of consulting specialists from different hospitals in the country in real time. Dimitrovgrad municipality has been working on this innovative project for more than two and a half years and plans to launch the service this fall.
