The traditional healthcare delivery model is undergoing a major transition, shaped by the increasing integration of technology we use daily within our personal and professional lives. From mobile applications to medical consultations via video, new telehealth practices and technologies are allowing patients healthcare access anytime, anywhere and on any device.
Because of our feature-rich APIs, Vidyo is leading the charge in the way telemedicine is being delivered around the world. Our technology allows video to be integrated into various telehealth platforms, networks and devices, at an easy-to-use, low price point unmatched by other video conferencing providers without sacrificing key features. A shining example of this is Mercy’s SafeWatch system, powered by Vidyo.
Mercy’s SafeWatch is the largest single-hub TeleICU in the country. Spanning across four states, 15 hospitals and monitoring close to 500 Philips TelelCU beds, this new telehealth service enables specialists to continually monitor critical patients and data, and interact via Vidyo with bedside medical teams, ICU patients and their families from one central command center. Deployed across a geographical region traditionally known to be difficult for patients to receive quick, acute healthcare and medical consultations due to its rural nature, Vidyo’s integration into Mercy’s SafeWatch system helps to provide timely, personalized care regardless of physical distance.
Check out more pictures below of Vidyo’s telemedicine solutions powering Mercy’s SafeWatch. We believe this state-of-the-art integrated system is central to the future of medicine, the expansion and delivery of patient care in the U.S., and one that will serve as a new model for healthcare systems across the world.
Vidyo’s visual communications technology for telehealth is integrated into Mercy’s central TeleICU command center in Chesterfield. Healthcare practitioners are now able to rely on secure, encrypted remote doctor-patient and doctor-doctor interactions that are as close to face-to-face consultations as you can get.
According to Wendy Deibert (pictured), vice president of Telehealth Services at Mercy, the health system expects to expand the use of Vidyo to even more beds and applications. “With Vidyo we are able to do many things a bedside physician can do, except physically touch a patient. We can see the entire room, from the drips to the ventilator panel, to how the patient looks. We can talk to the family, patient or nurses in the room.”
As critical patient information and data must be communicated with medical practitioners quickly wherever they may be, Vidyo’s complete end-to-end solution allows for HD video communications and images to be accessed from virtually any device.
