Polycom is about as top level as you can get with quality video and has been around for a long time. The company has partnered with Microsoft and may others over the years and now Emerge.MD is using the platform for telehealth. It can be used to engage the patient, other doctors and so on. The video below is a statement from a hospital’s success with the program.
As we all know rural hospitals are really in dire need of telehealth. Two or more physicians can connect to collaborate. Also doctors can connect with patients at home, all with a face to face consultation. BD
“With a web browser and a simple web camera, Emerge.MD can plug patients in to a telehealth care network. Chronic disease monitoring devices are made all the more effective when providers can directly contact a patient when they notice a change in their health status, and follow-up with a face-to-face consultation that adheres to federal privacy laws.”
