The C250 can be remotely managed using American Well’s Fleet Monitoring platform that is supplied with your purchase of the device. These remote management capabilities include:
• Alerts for offline or low battery events (SMS and/or email)
• Web-accessible dashboard showing important device details for your entire fleet
• Remote reboot and shutdown commands
• Seamless remote OS and Application updates
• Workflow configuration
The American Well C250 can be updated remotely using the American Well Fleet Monitoring platform. OS updates are downloaded and installed in the background and do not interrupt any operation of the cart. A simple restart is all that is required to activate the new update (no downtime). Configuration options include automatic updates and manual updates that need to be triggered using the Fleet Monitoring software.
The American Well C250 can be set upon a tabletop, mounted on a basic cart with a vertical lift mechanism, or mounted on a cart with a PTZ camera and a vertical lift mechanism.
