HACKENSACK, N.J., Sep 7, 2016 - Telehealth is at an inflection point. Embedded video conferencing technology has become a critical tool in the transformation of the delivery of telemedicine around the world. Physicians, providers, and patients understand that a comprehensive, reliable telehealth system that can be securely accessed over expansive public networks is invaluable.
Today, Vidyo has been honored by Frost & Sullivan for the impact its technology has had on the realm of telehealth with the 2016 North American Video Telehealth Enabling Technology Award. This recognition as a telehealth technology leader was based on a thorough evaluation against competitors and a series of criteria, including commitment to innovation, commercialization success, and application impact. Along with these considerations, Frost & Sullivan also assessed price performance and value, customer ownership experience, and brand equity.
According to the Frost & Sullivan report, “One of the premier video software platform providers is Vidyo. Leading virtual telehealth service providers and hospital systems use the company’s solutions to connect physicians with patients for a variety of medical evaluations, surgical consults, telestroke, in-home care, doctor to doctor, doctor to hospital, clinic, or nursing home.”
“There is growing interest among patients, large enterprise employers, payers, and providers to increase usage of telehealth virtual visits. There are many ways to accomplish this service, but the most effective approach involves high-quality video interactions over affordable connections. This is where Vidyo comes in,” said Victor Camlek, Principal Analyst, Transformational Health, Frost & Sullivan. “Vidyo provides the underlying infrastructure that enables a reliable and secure video conference session to occur. Vidyo offers solutions that support an individual personal meeting over a smartphone or a multi-party session between patients and providers or providers to providers. Vidyo deserves widespread recognition as a highly successful solution that will help take virtual visits to the highest level for the most industry participants.”
Vidyo’s telehealth platform powers the #1 healthcare app on the App store, video-enables the largest EHR systems, and provides access to telemedicine to more than 50 million patients around the world. Vidyo’s platform is used in dozens of telemedicine use cases, including Parkinson’s diagnosis, teleICU, tele behavioral health, diabetes and other chronic disease monitoring, telestroke, autism coaching, pathology board reviews, elder care, healthcare access in rural communities, and many more.
“We are honored to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for Vidyo’s hard work and commitment to the advancement of telemedicine,” said Eran Westman, CEO, Vidyo. “Together with the broadest ecosystem of healthcare solution providers, Vidyo’s telehealth solutions are unmatched and are designed to be seamlessly integrated into existing physician workflows and applications, making the technology transparent for both the patient and care teams, so the focus can remain on treatment and positive patient outcomes.”
Also noted in the Frost & Sullivan report: “A notable example of Vidyo’s commitment to innovation was the recent announcement of its deep integration with a major electronic health records (EHR) vendor, Epic Systems… Frost & Sullivan believes that Vidyo has demonstrated a commitment to innovation by becoming a highly regarded video enabler with hundreds of healthcare clients who rely on Vidyo’s service.”
