Telemedicine Technology For End Users
Video Conferencing for Health Professionals
Easily and securely collaborate – your team of users can meet and collaborate on documents, presentations, training or participate in executive briefings from your own office. The return on implementing a video solution is saved time, travel costs, and the ability to replay a meeting or call if you choose to record it from your secured web account. Patient-confidentiality is a concept synonymous with the Health industry. The number one enemy of confidentiality is a security breach, so needless to say, Health professionals must ensure they communicate securely with both patients, health experts and area specialists, within the highly secured spaces that UC&C can provide.
Extend communications – not only can you use a video conferencing solution for various meetings, you can also use it for interviews, checkups, and training across departments at your practices.
Interoperability – video conferencing has come a long way with the ability to meet, record and share content. Many platforms now allow you to invite anyone to a meeting through a link, so everyone has the same user experience no matter what video platform they use (Skype, Lync, Cisco, Google Hangouts, etc.). Plus, you can use any device ranging from a tablet to a desktop, further extending the ability to easily meet no matter where you are.
Managed service – a real concern for many businesses, no matter which industry, is how to manage the video conferencing technology. An independent managed service provider will be able to easily listen to your needs and implement a solution that will work best for you and your budget.

In the modern workplace, we're surrounded by an abundance of technology, and there is no bigger gripe than when the technology doesn't work together. Imagine attempting to join a meeting on a busy schedule when suddenly one device isn't working with another device, even though it worked correctly with a different device last week. There’s nothing more annoying; however, the answer is inherently simple. Interoperability. This fancy word has begun to float around the world of Unified Communication (check out our dictionary to understand that one!) more and more. Interoperability is defined as the "ability of computer systems or software to exchange and make use of information."
An end-to-end managed service that enables organizations to enjoy the full benefits of their video communications technology, with increased reliability, flexibility and cost savings.

8 Telemedicine Technology Trends You Need to Watch
With the market soaring and technology advancing, here are eight telemedicine technology trends to watch:
Cloud technology – Let’s face it, hardware costs a lot of money and is an unnecessary expense when it comes to providing telehealth/telemedicine solutions. Data can easily be stored in the cloud and accessed securely, a move many hospitals have made to improve both workplace and doctor/patient experience. Several video technologies are emerging to integrate several video platforms into one experience hosted in the cloud, such as Pexip & Cisco CMS.
Patient experience – The everyday patient expects solutions that enable them to take control of their care. Vendors have developed the tools and technology to reach remote patients all while reducing costs, increased experience over quality video, and communicating with physicians efficiently. Both physician and patient are happier when travel is taken out of the equation for a quick check-in or follow-up regarding their health.
Mobile technology - A reported 91% of adults own a cell phone, while 83.3% of U.S. households report computer ownership. Internet connections are faster, cameras are typically built-in as a standard, and healthcare applications for devices are among the top in downloads. With many people already plugged in and ready to monitor or manage their health, the demand for telemedicine is high.
Remote workplace – Hospitals are more connected than ever, with doctors, nurses and staff collaborating in real-time. Video conferencing enables experts from anywhere in the world to conference in, no matter the time or device they are using. Easily solve problems and communicate quickly at a fraction of the cost it would take for in-person consultations or meetings.
Social network – If you did a Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter or Google+ search for anything health related, you would likely see billions of results. People share healthy recipes, ask for health or fitness advice, and count on family and friends to provide motivation. Social networks are helping people everywhere maintain healthier lifestyles all while integrating these decisions with other technologies, such as healthcare applications.
Health & wellness routines – People seek advice, especially from their physicians, dieticians and wellness coaches. Telemedicine enables experts to easily and quickly communicate with patients to provide new diet and exercise routines to improve post-discharge care. Costs are cut and complications are reduced, providing a better overall experience.
Privacy & Security – Medical networks are expected to be secured. Policies around storage and access of patient information can be managed in the cloud, reducing the risk of it becoming lost or stolen.
Cost-effective operation – Day-to-day tasks and meetings become more efficient while increasing satisfaction for everyone. Video conferencing provides an affordable solution for medical staff and patients to easily collaborate, meet and share information. Operationally, it takes the burden off of hospital staff to need to be in multiple places when they can easily access video from any device.
