In the technology oriented healthcare industry, providers and patients are recognising the benefits of video communications. There is constant pressure to increase quality of patient care and the desire to provide new services, while at the same time controlling costs.
Healthcare providers are leveraging the power of video communications to link patients, physicians, and clinicians and extend the reach of healthcare. Patients want lower out-of-pocket costs, shorter wait times and less travel as they receive medical care.
Video communications allow medical personnel to evaluate patients and diagnose illnesses in real-time without the need for either the patient or the practitioner to travel. Medical professionals also use video communications to access certification programs, for continuing medical education (CME), and to train others.
