December 3, 2013 — Etiam partnered with Vidyo Inc. to improve patient care through telemedicine and teleconsultation. Etiam’s flagship solution, Etiam-Connect is the basis for the offering. Etiam-Connect, an image and clinical data-sharing solution, supports telemedicine and the delivery of clinical care in remote settings. Through integration of the VidyoWorks platform, Etiam-Connect will now include HD video conferencing capabilities to provide quicker, more efficient patient care. Currently, Etiam-Connect is used to automate trauma transfers, referring physician access, multidisciplinary team communication, eHealth patient services and remote access.
The Vidyo-enabled Etiam solution is being demonstrated in Hall B at the Radiological Society of North American Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013). Etiam will be displaying full demonstrations of the solution, allowing interested attendees to test the solution by talking with a real person on the opposite end.
“With both Teleconsultation and Image Sharing, multiple medical cases can be handled, including second opinion consultations, tele-expertise, remote assistance and multidisciplinary medical team collaboration,” said Eric Le Bihan, CEO, Etiam.
“As more and more healthcare practitioners realize the vast benefit of visual communications embedded within their medical applications, the demand increases for scalable and interoperable software-based solutions such as Vidyo,” said Eric Le Guiniec, vice president, Vidyo and general manager, European Medicines Agency (EMEA). “Etiam-Connect directly addresses the needs of physicians for whom video communication and sharing of medical data and visual information are critical. The integration of the VidyoWorks platform with Etiam-Connect delivers an unsurpassed level of communication easily and securely over the Internet and other general purpose IP networks and on everyday devices.”
Since 2010, over 150 hospitals worldwide have been exchanging images, documents and reports using Etiam-Connect. About 3 million images are exchanged monthly on Etiam-Connect, corresponding to more than 7,500 medical cases.
