Video Conferencing and Telepresence Solutions for the Health Care Industry
There is exciting news for health care providers! Now, due to increased reliability of the equipment and reduced cost of ownership, health care organizations can use video conferencing and telepresence technology to successfully address a host of educational, managerial, and patient challenges.
Video collaboration solutions create virtual meeting experiences so realistic, participants feel as if they are in the same room even if they are miles apart. By allowing real-time, two-way interaction, this technology effectively simulates the experience traditionally obtained face-to-face in examination and operating rooms.
Established in 1995, IVCi is a leading integrator of video conferencing and telepresence systems, audio visual equipment, and managed conferencing services for health care providers nationwide. We plan, design, implement, and support secure and reliable solutions that are tailored to meet the specific needs of each organization, whether they are a large urban hospital or small rural facility,
All of IVCi's video and audio visual solutions are based on open standards that accommodate multi-vendor interoperability and leverage existing network infrastructure. We work with all of our health care clients to help them maximize the return on their investment, while minimizing the total cost of ownership.
The following are just a few benefits that health care organizations receive by using video conferencing and telepresence technology:
- Knowledge transfer: Physicians can more easily exchange leading-edge expertise with widely dispersed colleagues across the country and around the globe.
- Access to specialists: Patients receive access to remote specialists so that they can receive up-to-the-minute information about managing chronic illnesses such as diabetes and high blood pressure - information that might not otherwise be available.
- Access for patients in remote locations: Experts in illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, prenatal or neonatal care, and other areas can use video conferencing to reach hundreds of patients remotely, sharing new guidance and late-breaking developments, and offering potentially life-saving advice.
- Patient retention: A reduction in the need to transfer patients resulting in the ability to retain revenue.
- Training: Satisfying C.M.E requirements, medical ground rounds, and internal training is facilitated.
- Scheduling: Residents can treat more patients by reducing travel time.
Additionally, the American Heart Association (AHA) has found that video conferencing can be as effective as a bedside exam for assessing stroke patients. Stroke patients require rapid assessment in order to determine if they're eligible for time-sensitive treatments. These patient assessments often need to be performed by stroke and brain imaging specialists, but these specialists are not always available at the location of the victim.
Video conferencing, and interactive, real-time visual collaboration technology, enables distant stroke experts to see and hear patients, family members and on-site health care providers. This technology offers a cost-effective and time-efficient method of extending the reach of neurologists.
