Telehealth has been a focus for Vidyo because our care providing customers and partners have made it clear that more efficient use of clinical expertise across their systems is the key to delivering better patient outcomes and economic success in accountable care models. From providing access to a remote specialist, to assessing patients in remote areas to determine if emergency evacuation is needed and even for providing remote monitoring and interventions for chronic conditions such as diabetes, telehealth has proved its place.

Many healthcare providers are looking to drive clinical efficiencies through telehealth programs across the care continuum but often run into challenges. Vidyo’s experience with our more than 120 healthcare system partners representing over 1,800 hospitals in the US has allowed us to recognize that the primary challenge isn’t the technology, but the ability for organization’s to successfully integrate these programs into their existing clinical operations and workflows. Our clinical design service, called VirtualDesign, ensures success for healthcare organizations looking to implement effective and sustainable telehealth programs.

Vidyo has hired Wendy Deibert as vice president of clinical services to help drive the future vision and execution of the new service offerings. Deibert is a registered nurse and one of the original architects and leaders of the Mercy Virtual telehealth program.

If you’ll be attending ATA Fall Forum and are interested in learning more about VirtualDesign services, come visit us at booth #106. Vidyo will also be demonstrating the following telehealth solutions:

Vidyo Transfer Agent – An embedded video application for patient engagement from a website or portal, customized to the healthcare systems’ needs and specification through Vidyo professional services, that enables white glove triage services for patients connecting face-to-face with a live representative. Through the interaction, the representative is able to collect necessary information and assist the patient by connecting him or her in real-time to the appropriate administrator or clinician for help via a warm transfer.

Specialist Consults – Using desktop computers or mobile devices over wireless Internet, remote specialists can join reliable high quality video consultations with patient and care giver in an ambulatory care setting. The remote specialist is able to share and annotate content, control his or her point of view by remotely controlling the patient’s side camera and view the output of electronic otoscopes and exam cameras during physical examination.

Already powering the #1 healthcare app on the App store and having been named a recipient of Frost & Sullivan’s 2016 North American Video Telehealth Enabling Technology Leadership Award, Vidyo VirtualDesign will ensure successful telehealth program implementations for healthier patients and care provider bottom lines.
