Hospitals offered “real-life” virtual meeting technology to improve remote healthcare

Hospitals and other medical facilities will be able to offer better patient care virtually anywhere with the latest healthcare telepresence systems from Nortel and Polycom.

Hospitals and other medical facilities will be able to offer better patient care virtually anywhere with the latest healthcare telepresence systems from Nortel and Polycom.

The technolgies will enable healthcare providers to create multi-location virtual meetings so physicians, surgeons, researchers and other professionals will be able to communicate from different locations.

This can help them be more efficient and productive because it delivers most of the same benefits of in-person consultations without the time and expense of travel, says the supplier.

Nortel's Healthcare Telepresence systems include standards-based telepresence and high-definition (HD) video conferencing from Polycom for telemedicine and clinical collaboration.

They also include Nortel Multimedia Services such as recording and archiving of clinical records and educational materials for re-use via the web and other media.

Nortel can operate, manage and maintain this system on behalf of any healthcare provider with services from the Nortel Global Services portfolio.

Polycom offers a number of telepresence and HD video collaboration systems designed specifically for healthcare.

This includes the mobile Polycom HDX Practitioner Cart, which enables physicians to examine and diagnose remotely-located patients in real-time.
