Vidyo joined about 18,0001 people at Epic Systems’ annual users group meeting (UGM) this week in Verona, Wisconsin. The conference, themed “An Adventure in Wonderland,” showcased a select group of technology partners that are able to integrate into Epic’s suite of electronic health records software.

epic300The Vidyo booth exhibited live demos featuring the latest Vidyo telemedicine technology. One demonstration showcased VidyoDesktopTM calling directly to a medical cart. The medical cart displayed an AMD general examination camera, which enables healthcare professionals to assess a patient from an entirely remote location. To top it all off, Vidyo showed how the entire call could take place on a tablet using the power of VidyoMobileTM and VidyoSlateTM.

Epic Founder and CEO Judy Faulkner spoke on the importance of working together to form alliances in the healthcare and technology spaces.

“We’re not going to be the best at everything, and that’s why…collaboration amongst health systems is so important,” said Faulkner2.

Vidyo works closely with Epic Systems, enabling video integration for telehealth applications and modules including Hyperspace, MyChart Web, MyChart Mobile, Canto, and Haiku.

The VidyoWorksTM platform provides unparalled workflow integration and ease of use, both of which are crucial components to physician adoption of telehealth technologies. Vidyo’s comprehensive APIs enable Epic to reduce complexities through native integration of high quality video communication into all applications supporting the EpicCare virtual care and telehealth workflows.
