Advanced Video Technologies Provide Medical Care At A Distance
Video conference software in Melbourne, Florida isn’t just for traditional businesses anymore. Many business industries are discovering the usefulness that video conferencing capabilities allow. Video conferencing solutions like those offered at Pipeline Video Solutions are being used in the medical industry as a way to provide medical care from a distance.
“While telemedicine activities have been going on for decades, the technology has emerged to major markets in the last five years due to advancements, ease of use, quality and cost. Delivery of services is typically offered through turnkey network solutions deployed at the customer’s data center, or as cloud-based services,” explained Lance Littlejohn, president of Pipeline Video Solutions.
The use of video conferencing in the medical field helps bring about more accurate and timely diagnoses especially for those patients in rural areas where it can often be difficult to find a specialist. Before this technology emerged, this was often not possible or it required strenuous, expensive travel.
“Some of the most significant benefits of telemedicine are demonstrated in its ability to extend the geographic reach of medical care. This technology enables more frequent and higher-quality monitoring of chronic cases, as well as enables enhanced levels of domiciliary care. Telemedicine can also significantly reduce costs by reducing non-medically necessary ER visits and readmissions as members use virtual options for after-hours care and provider instruction,” Littlejohn explains.
The practice of telemedicine is undergoing significant evolution along with the advances taking place in the video conferencing market in general. Being able to video conference online is helping many people expand their businesses and enhance their every day life, so make sure to give Pipeline Video Solutions a call today to see how our technology can help you.
