Hackensack, NJ, February 13, 2019 – Vidyo, the leader in embedded real-time video solutions, today announced that Healthy Engage, a first-of-its-kind oncology focused patient-centered mobile collaboration platform that brings together patient engagement, financial affordability, advocacy, and assistance networks, has selected vidyo.io to embed real-time video communications into its mobile app.
The Vidyo-enabled cancer patient engagement application will enable oncology care givers and advocacy networks to better address the changing expectations, preferences and behaviors of cancer patients and their families, offering enhanced customer service, convenience and cost effective care. Embedded into the Healthy Engage app, Vidyo’s enterprise-grade video quality, HIPAA compliant-ready capabilities, and patented routing technology offers providers and patients alike a seamless and consistent user experience via multi-party video calls over low bandwidth situations, particularly in remote locations.
“Our goal is to empower consumers to actively influence their personal health journey, through assessment, informed choices and most importantly collaboration,” said Ravi Seshadri, Co-Founder of Healthy Engage. “Our app will improve transparency with regard to cost of care, assisting consumers to make informed choices during pre-enrollment and treatment.”
According to Laura Stevens McElearney, former COO of Innovative Oncology Business Solutions and Program Director of the Community Oncology Medical Home (COME HOME) CMMI grant, “cancer patients can actively contribute to the quality and cost effectiveness of their care, given enhanced patient and family engagement. The industry needs a patient engagement platform that can leverage mobile and machine learning technologies to extend the reach of triage pathways into the patient’s home.”
“Healthy Engage’s selection of vidyo.io to embed real-time video into its app validates Vidyo’s strategic direction to open our platform to third-party developers,” said Sam Waicberg, SVP of Business Development, Vidyo. “Real-time video is an important component of delivering an amazing patent experience. Extending our platform across patient engagement workflows for Healthy Engage customers is a perfect example of how Vidyo provides a truly differentiated experience.”
