Polycom Showcases Technology And Developer Partner Healthcare Applications Leveraging Polycom® RealPresence® Platform At HIMSS 2013 Conference

Stock quotes in this article: PLCM

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open, standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today showcased at the HIMSS 2013 Conference (booth #1320) several technology and developer partner solutions for a variety of healthcare applications using Polycom HD video, voice, and content sharing and management capabilities. Together, Polycom and its partners are helping to drive preventative medicine, reduce unnecessary hospitalizations, and extend the reach and capabilities of telehealth networks.

Healthcare organizations around the world turn to Polycom® RealPresence® collaboration solutions to transform how they teach, learn and deliver care. Polycom solutions eliminate the distances between patients and caregivers, between physicians and educators, and between medical facilities. By bringing caregivers and patients, multi-disciplinary medical teams, and administrative staffs together face-to-face in HD video quality, independent of location, Polycom RealPresence solutions reduce patient evaluation times, extend the reach and capacity of physicians with the ability to consult with patients remotely, improve medical education, enhance caregiver productivity and quality of life, streamline hospital operations, reduce costs, and ultimately help save lives by accelerating access to experts in times of crisis.

“Healthcare organizations are under pressure to deliver the best possible patient care with reduced resources. At the same time they’re challenged by the aging population and a shortage of healthcare providers in many cities and regions,” said Steve Pattison, Vice President of Technology Developer Partners and Business Development at Polycom. “Polycom RealPresence video solutions combined with our partners’ technology provide healthcare facilities, healthcare professionals, and medical educators great new tools to deal with these challenges by extending collaborative healthcare networks to connect experts to where they’re needed most, and by facilitating prevention and wellness models of care that are much better for the health of patients as well as the industry’s bottom line. With partners like AMD, Eceptionist and GlobalMed, we offer healthcare providers more ways to coordinate care and share knowledge in more effective, productive, and budget-friendly ways.”
