Vidyo, Inc., the video platform leader in healthcare, is providing video communications for Ebola patient Dr. Richard Sacra at the Biocontainment Patient Care Unit at the Nebraska Medical Center. Vidyo’s software-based visual communications platform plays a key role in connecting family members, physicians and nurses with Dr. Sacra as his treatment continues in the isolation unit at the Center, the largest facility of its kind in the United States.

The Nebraska Biocontainment Unit is one of only four specialized units in the country and is equipped to safely care for patients infected with highly contagious diseases, like Ebola, and includes access to video conferencing for patients.

Via a secure Vidyo connection, Dr. Sacra can communicate face-to-face with his wife. In scenarios that are time-critical, the human interaction provided through Vidyo’s unique platform is changing the way acute care is delivered throughout the country.
