Reston, VA – September 6, 2016 – Specialists On Call, Inc.

The cart, in conjunction with SOC’s industry-leading telemedicine infrastructure and software capabilities, delivers a fully-interactive, easy-to-use, and more affordable alternative for facilities, while reinforcing the company’s focus on delivering high quality patient consultations.
“As a technology-enabled clinical solutions provider, our priority is to ensure access to care through the most cost-effective platform,” stated Mr. Hammad Shah, CEO of Specialists On Call. “With rapid evolution in the telemedicine industry, and as hardware has become a commodity, SOC has leveraged a decade of telemedicine expertise to build a seamless and feature-rich offering of hardware, software and clinical services.
