Vidyo-enabled Healthcare Consultations Aim to Increase Efficiency, Improve Patient Outcomes – The Interview

In my second Convergent TechWeek, I included a recent story on teleheath and the utilization of a well-known industry company’s videoconferencing solution:

Vidyo-enabled Healthcare Consultations Aim to Increase Efficiency, Improve Patient Outcomes

HACKENSACK, N.J. AND AURORA, CO. – August, 2015 – Diabetes is a costly chronic health condition that places immense strain on patients, families, healthcare providers and medical systems. In an effort to mitigate these challenges, the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes (BDC) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, together with Children’s Hospital Colorado, is piloting a first-of-its-kind clinical program, leveraging video conferencing technology from Vidyo, to help teens and young adults better adapt to living independently with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) by providing real time, face-to-face access to their physicians and group interaction with other young adults living with T1D.

The study, named “Colorado Young Adults with Type 1” or CoYoT1 (said: coyote), is focused on patients aged 18-25 who often experience significant lapses in routine diabetes care. Central to the CoYoT1 study is the VidyoWorksTM platform, used to conduct secure virtual one-on-one visits between physicians and patients and group clinic meetings. The easy-to-use software based platform from Vidyo delivers HIPAA compliant, HD quality video conferencing over most Internet connections and is compatible with all major devices, enabling young adults in the study to access care and interact with peers from college dorm rooms, home or on the go, using public Internet, cellular or wired networks.

As a result, I reached out to Vidyo’s public relations to set up an interview with Mark Noble, VP of Telehealth Business Development at Vidyo and Dr. Jennifer Raymond, Assistant Professor, Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus to discuss this in a 30+ minute video interview.

This interview was recorded with Vidyo (I am on audio only in the interview)
