Vidyo, Inc., the first company to deliver personal telepresence, today announced that one of the world’s largest telemedicine networks, the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN), will use the Vidyo platform to expand its current network and create a tele-home health network that will interoperate with its existing video conferencing network and extend the reach of its telehealth services into patient homes. Conveniently located in every hospital and hundreds of other health care locations across Ontario, more than 134,000 clinical consultations were conducted using telemedicine over the past year. OTN expects to roll out the Vidyo-based network to thousands more patients and providers throughout the province over the next three years.

“Thousands of health care professionals use OTN to deliver care across the province,” said Dr. Ed Brown, CEO of OTN. “Most of our current endpoints are hosted on a private network, but in order to expand our program into patients’ homes and the broader community, we needed a video conferencing solution that operates securely over the Internet, so that it can be accessed via laptops and desktop computers by both healthcare providers and tele-homecare patients. We need a solution that is cost-effective, scalable and boasts high video quality, among other things. But we also need a solution that is highly interoperable so that it can work with our existing, older systems. After an exhaustive evaluation of solutions, we determined that Vidyo was the preferred solution that met, and exceeded our requirements.”

Integration with OTN’s existing state-of-the-art scheduling and telemedicine workflow software was easily accomplished, since Vidyo’s rich APIs allow service providers to customize and integrate with their unique, individual systems. Vidyo was also able to provide seamless operation on both OTN’s private and public networks, as well as firewall traversal capabilities which made Vidyo “service provider ready,” secure, scalable, and simple to manage and deploy.

“OTN’s choice of Vidyo for their new home care and PC-based telehealth video communications is further evidence of their industry leading vision,” said Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo’s CEO and co-founder. “They recognized that for medical practitioners to connect with home-based patients and remotely-located facilities, their telemedicine solution would need to deliver telepresence-quality, natural communications over the Internet and other non-QoS networks. Ultimately, OTN found that Vidyo is the only communication and collaboration platform scalable and interoperable enough to easily expand the reach and the types of high quality services needed for a variety of different endpoints and environments: a wide range of patients, practitioners, clinics and hospitals – and at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.”

The Vidyo Difference
The Vidyo communication and collaboration platform is software-based, highly flexible and can be easily customized for individual enterprise and vertical market video conferencing needs, and able to quickly leverage the latest hardware innovations, making it attractive to partners.
