Polycom Solutions for Telemedicine/Patient Care

Overview

Healthcare costs are rising, our population is aging, and there are far too few doctors and providers for a patient base that is widely distributed and frequently far from health care facilities and medical expertise.

Polycom helps close distance barriers by connecting patients, practitioners, specialists, and case managers utilizing collaborative standards-based video solutions for PCs and Tablets. Polycom connects the entire healthcare team so that they can communicate over video from anywhere to support patient centered care.

For telemedicine encounters, the Polycom Practitioner Cart HDX mobile healthcare solution, for patient side, sends live high definition video, audio, and PC images to a specialist.  The specialist can connect to the cart from a distance using a standards based video conferencing system like Polycom’s desktop or mobile video solutions.  With Polycom the specialist  can control the far end camera, and share their PC content or browser-based applications with the patient.

You can grow very large telehealth networks with the Polycom RealPresence Platform which utilizes a standards based, scalable, open system approach.  In addition to live point to point and multi-point video calls, it supports recording, archiving and web based video educational sessions for network members, and provides the resiliency and reliability needed in large video network deployments.
