Diagnosing patients in our current environment can put physicians at risk and requires use of personal protective equipment (PPE). This equipment includes gloves, masks, gowns, etc which is either disposed of, or at the very least, sterilized after each use. The increase in demand for PPE has caused shortages which leaves physicians in a tough place, sometimes requiring risking exposure in order to diagnose patients. Gent.MD is a service designed to reduce this exposure by giving physicians the ability to remotely visit with and assess the patients condition.

The concept we are presenting here is not new, but the implementation is. This is a web based service for managing and initiating remote video chat sessions. Exam rooms would require a display with a camera (called a 'remote' in this application), while the physician would simply use their personal PC, also with a webcam. Once logged in, the physician would be able to see all the connected exam rooms with the ability to initiate a video chat at any time.
This service is currently in Beta and is freely available for use while we all grapple with the Covid-19 outbreak.
