Mercy, the sixth largest Catholic health system in the U.S., has tapped Vidyo to better medical diagnosis and delivery.
Vidyo has enabled specialists at Mercy SafeWatch, the largest single-hub TeleICU in the country, to monitor patient data across 15 hospitals and interact via video communication with on-site medical teams and patients.
The company has integrated Vidyo’s visual communications technology into Mercy’s central TeleICU command center in St. Louis, which also supports other critical care telemedicine services at Mercy such as telestroke, telecardiology and teleperinatal.
With the integration of Vidyo and Philips eCare Manager, SafeWatch is able to provide around-the-clock vigilance of critically ill patients.
Vidyo video conferencing is connected to more than 450 Philips TelelCU monitored beds. Mercy’s critical care doctors and nurses can watch over and communicate with ICU patients, their families and bedside healthcare staff via Vidyo from a central command center.
The VidyoWorks platform allows healthcare providers to deploy high definition (HD), low latency Vidyo for healthcare anywhere that can be accessed from virtually any device and room size over basic Internet or wireless networks.
Vidyo delivers HIPAA compliant encryption for its endpoints and is able to integrate with third party H.323 and SIP-based video conferencing systems. It easily integrates with established healthcare environments, supporting a variety of medical devices and interoperating with existing conferencing infrastructure.
