Best Practice Award
The Frost & Sullivan Customer Value Enhancement Award is presented annually and recognizes a company’s inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and ultimately customer base expansion.

Vidyo in Practice
The Vidyo platform has revolutionized visual communication and collaboration for the healthcare market through a variety of continued relationships and partnerships with leading organizations.  By using Vidyo technology, healthcare practitioners are able to conduct remote “visits” or consultations with their patients, without geographic or logistical limitations. Vidyo’s collaboration with the Ontario Telemedicine Network has resulted in one of the largest instances of video consultation use in the world, with over 165,000 consultations carried out remotely each year and growing. Vidyo’s work with American Well is an additional example of this kind of application. For remote consultations to be successful, another key concern to healthcare practitioners is workflow integration.  To deliver the very best in diagnostic and workflow solutions to its customers, companies such as AMD Global Telemedicine and REACH Health are adding Vidyo technology into their platforms, providing fully integrated point of care telemedicine. Among other leading telehealth organizations, Vidyo’s partners and customers include Massachusetts General Hospital, Rubbermaid Telemedicine, and CyberFish Cybermedical Community in Switzerland.
