Healthcare

Healthcare is a sector which often requires some support to ensure the smooth operation of various services, in particular with the rise of demand of Patient Travel, the need for Medical Education, how operations are Geographically Dispersed, Medical Resource Shortages, and Consultations Becoming Standard.

Patient Travel

Patients are often asked to travel to specialists based at different facilities. It is not always feasible for them to travel these distances.

Hiperdist Solution
TelePresence:

A modern and effective collaboration tool for Healthcare. TelePresence creatives immersive, in-person meeting experiences among geographically dispersed users over the internet. Integrated visual and audio components deliver the characteristics of a face-to-face meeting, creating a lifelike collaboration experience. Cisco TelePresence enabled patients to accomplish more in the same amount of time without the stress and fatigue associated with travel.

Benefits of the Solution
Improve Care and Productivity:
  • Provide consultations and second opinions to sites without requisite clinical resources
  • Use application sharing to help clinicians access records from disparate systems
  • Engage remotely located physicians for whom travel or other costs would have precluded using their expertise
  • Conduct research collaboration sessions without need to travel

Managing Medical Education

Continuing medical education often requires doctors and nurses to travel and take time away from patients.

Geographically Dispersed Operations

Traditionally, healthcare executives travel extensively to provide executive leadership across regions and facilities, which can be costly and reduces productivity.

Hiperdist Solution
TelePresence:

By connecting executives, medical professionals, patients, and suppliers in real time, regardless of their locations, can help to reduce the inefficiencies of traditional collaboration tools. For many customers, a TelePresence solution pays back its investment within a year.

Benefits of the Solution
Eliminating distance as a barrier:
  • Executives and experts can collaborate live with internal teams, supply chain partners, and other resources, minimising travel and its associated costs.
  • The ability to collaborate in real time using TelePresence enables you to quickly deploy new clinical processes, manage remote sites more effectively, optimise clinical and staff resources, and participate in operations across multiple sites.
  • The ability to immediately address issues and adapt to changing conditions helps improve care, optimise key clinical resources and broaden access to care.

Medical Resource Shortages

Patients living in remote or underserved areas might have reduced access to quality healthcare even basic care from a primary physician. Additionally, specialists are increasingly in short supply.

Hiperdist Solution
TelePresence:

Using TelePresence with Watson Cognitive system allows health institutions to enhance clinical consultations and care. You can extend expert resources such as radiologists, cardiologists and nuclear medicine experts, across a broad geographic area, reducing patient transfers whilst increasing productivity. Access second opinions or enable specialist diagnosis and treatment plans through TelePresence conferencing technology.

Benefits of the Solution
Eliminating distance as a barrier:
  • Scale Scarce Resources: Limited physician and clinician resources can now be scaled across multiple locations to provide consistent, optimised levels of quality care
  • Specialised diagnoses and face-to-face consultations can be delivered cost-effectively and more frequently
  • Hospitals and speciality centers that are linked using TelePresence can take advantage of scarce resources, such as ICU physician monitoring, virtually
  • They can also cross-train teams faster, adopt new protocols more efficiently, and work together to deliver improved healthcare coverage to satellite and remote locations

Consultations Becoming Standard

Healthcare increasingly relies on consultations to manage research to patient referrals, specialist consultations, and delivering care to remote areas. Increasing demand also makes it impossible for the limited number of specialists to meet the growing need.

Hiperdist Solution
TelePresence:

Improving the Quality and Speed of Care, TelePresence for Healthcare helps connect people across regional or global locations for training, consultation, and specialised collaboration.

With this solution, you can create immersive, face-to-face communication experiences. You are also able to provide easy access to specialists at the point of care and make it easier and more convenient for clinicians to collaborate. This improves both the timeliness and quality of care delivered.

Benefits of the Solution
Eliminating distance as a barrier:
  • Extend Consultation Virtually: Using TelePresence, you can extend consultation capabilities to sites won-location specialists
  • For institutions seeking to expand service coverage or provide remote care to affiliates and clinics, the ability to consult with patients remotely can be a significant advantage.
  • The ability to provide remote care can also be a recruiting and retention benefit for physicians.
  • To direct caregivers, research teams and sales teams can benefit from enhanced collaboration capabilities as they develop new drugs, provide training on new instruments, or consult on innovative procedures.
