Video Conferencing in Healthcare - TeleMedicine & TeleTherapy Solutions
Despite significant improvements to videoconferencing and collaboration technologies for use in telemedicine applications, many practitioners and patients are still not able to receive the benefit of these important healthcare solutions. Simply put, the use of traditional video conferencing in healthcare has been restricted because of the high cost and limited access to the quality of service enhanced networks and expensive equipment required to make it work.
While major urban hospitals and medical facilities may have dedicated networks over which telemedicine applications can be used, many of the neediest patients and clinics – those located in rural and remote locations, have been shut out due to lack of access. Likewise, the use of videoconferencing as a way for the infirmed or elderly to receive medical care at home has been hindered by legacy videoconferencing solutions that do not achieve the high-quality or the needed reach to connect all practitioners with these in-home patients.
Legacy video telemedicine solutions simply can’t provide the level of consistent, low-latency, error resilient transmission required by medical specialists, over general purpose IP networks like the Internet.
