Success Built on Customer Focus, Delivering Innovation and Trusted Experience

Chelmsford, MA, February, 29, 2016–AMD Global Telemedicine, celebrates 25 years of supporting health care organizations around the world with clinical telemedicine solutions.  Since AMD was founded in 1991, the Company has evolved from a provider of medical devices and peripherals to the leader in clinical Telemedicine Encounter Management Solutions (TEMS) ™ with a portfolio of over 30 products.

AMD has grown their customer base to 8,700 patient-end points in more than 98 countries today.  The Company’s continued focus on managing existing relationships with customers and devotion to expanding access to medical care, has helped AMD solidify their place in the clinical telemedicine market.  “We have our customers and partners to thank for the knowledge and experience we have built here at AMD,” commented Steve Normandin, President of AMD Global Telemedicine. “After 25 years, we are proud that our customers rely on us to help them embark on their telemedicine initiatives, and we are committed to help them provide value-based care,” added Normandin.

As a provider of specialty medical devices and peripherals for their first nineteen years, AMD changed the telemedicine space by developing and delivering innovative solutions that empower health care professionals to deliver care in previously unimaginable ways.  In 2010, AMD revolutionized the way telemedicine technologies could be applied with the development of their AGNES® software – the industry’s first platform to aggregate medical device data with live streaming medical video through a browser. This first of its kind technology enables remote physicians to have real-time access to an exam site from anywhere in the world.  This development, paired with their existing medical device and telemedicine cart offerings, quickly propelled the company for growth into new application areas. The addition of workflow solutions, network performance measurement and EMR integration products continue to augment the Company’s portfolio.

Over the past 25 years, AMD Global Telemedicine has played an integral role in helping health care organizations and clinical professionals deliver access to health care, regardless of their physical location.  The Company has been at the forefront of the telemedicine evolution from “proof of concept” pilot programs in the US to country wide deployments in developing nations. “We have seen some interesting applications and use cases for telemedicine over the years,” commented Dan McCafferty, Vice President of Sales & Corporate Development at AMD. “But we have learned the most from listening to our customers and helping them through their challenges of implementing new technologies into existing infrastructures and supporting them so they can continue to improve health care access one telemedicine encounter at a time,” added McCafferty.
