VSee Helps Elizabeth R. Griffith Foundation Stay on the Forefront of Care for Zika

15544482901_26a6b7bbd9_o

It’s been almost two years since infectious disease expert Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner first started using VSee to help stop health epidemics. Back then his team was on the ground in West Africa, fighting the Ebola outbreak. While Ebola is still a concern for them, they have also turned their attention to a new threat – Zika. They have been working on a needs assessment for the Zika virus in hospitals and labs across five countries, which they just finished in April.

Dr. Macgregor-Skinner is the Global Projects Lead at the Elizabeth R. Griffin Research Foundation and the Director of Global Disaster Response at Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

With his wide experience in public health and emergency response, he was one of 18 experts whose research and contributions resulted in the recent report titled “Effective Public Health Communication in an Interconnected World: Enhancing Resilience to Health Crises,” published by KYNE and News Deeply. In it, he highlights technology platforms that were deployed on the ground in West Africa. He singles out the power of VSee telemedicine, which enabled physicians to monitor Ebola patients from thousands of miles away. VSee’s telemedicine platform meets all his criteria for communication platforms of the future:

  • strong visuals,
  • user-friendly design,
  • round-the-clock availability, and
  • easy-to-access portals.

You can read the full report here.

The VSee team is grateful for the amazing work of people like Dr. Macgregor-Skinner and glad that we can contribute new telehealth technology that is helping to save lives.

HealthPartners Chooses VSee As Its Telehealth Solution: A Case Study

healthpartners telemedicine cart

If you’re looking for ways to connect providers and staff at a distance, check out this case study on one of  our telehealth projects for HealthPartners.

It showcases a low cost telemedicine solution we designed for Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. The solution allows Regions to share their top-notch specialist resources with a neighboring hospital that lacks these resources – in particular, Regions is able to provide on-call neurologists for stroke and other cases. 

VSee was among four video telemedicine platforms evaluated for the project. Ultimately Regions chose VSee over the three other larger, well-established competitors. VSee’s telehealth expertise and its simple, yet full-featured solution made it the “superior” choice for the project.

Some VSee solution highlights include:

  1.   The ability to remotely control pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras so distant physicians can examine patients from afar.
  2.   One-click sharing with live annotation so that attending and consulting physicians can review CT scans together in real time
  3.  The ability to quickly design and implement a customized interface that integrated into its current workflow
  4.  The ability for consulting physicians to answer a call from their mobile devices
  5.  Cost savings!
