Vidyo, Inc., the leading embedded video collaboration platform, announced today that Equatel Health, has chosen Vidyo to provide high-quality visual communication for the Equatel telemedicine platform. Using the vidyo.io communications platform-as-a-service (CPaaS), Equatel is able to offer real-time video consultations and thorough medical examinations as a seamlessly integrated part of its offering for remote patient access in rural geographies. Equatel’s life-saving solution has been successfully deployed this year within a number of Equatel’s healthcare initiatives throughout Africa and India.
“Vidyo brings the best in video connectivity to our telemedicine platform,” said Elliot Mondrow, Equatel’s CEO. “Our platform incorporates quality, robust and user-friendly solutions, from our public access kiosks to our highly certified medical peripherals. With vidyo.io, Equatel Health enables an unparalleled remote consultation experience.”
Equatel Health delivers advanced healthcare to rural communities. Designed to meet the healthcare needs of emerging markets, Equatel Health’s telemedicine platform provides the infrastructure for remote healthcare. Services include public access e-health kiosks for patients, on-site medical diagnostics, and a custom Electronic Health Record system.
The vidyo.io CPaaS provides patented layering and routing technology allowing mobile, real-time video to be reliably transmitted across variable wifi networks and the public Internet. This technology facilitates a high quality patient experience even in low bandwidth scenarios and rural environments.
“Equatel’s mission to create quality care through affordable and simple-to-use technology is closely aligned with Vidyo’s goal to enrich people’s lives by making real-time video communications ubiquitous,” said Sam Waicberg, SVP of Business Development, Vidyo. “In emerging markets like Africa and India, millions of people still do not have access to quality healthcare. Telemedicine helps care providers proactively manage populations across tens of thousands of square miles and deliver a reliable, in-person, care experience directly to the patient, regardless of location.”
In challenging rural environments such as Alaska and Haiti, telemedicine powered by Vidyo is used to deliver healthcare to thousands of people who are geographically out of reach, preventing vulnerable, remote patient populations from slipping through the cracks.
Equatel Health custom tailors its platform for the specific regional needs of each project. By receiving input directly from local governments, NGO’s, and healthcare providers, Equatel ensures that its solutions are viable and sustainable.
Equatel Health’s spotlight project locations include: India (partners: Max Healthcare, IFC, health 2.0), Ivory Coast (partners: Rafa Medical, Orange Telecom, Health Ministry), Malawi (partners: LMJ Healthcare, CTI), Uganda (partners: Brit Olam, Health Ministry).
Equatel Health (equatel.com) delivers an intuitive telemedicine infrastructure for emerging markets across the globe. Our public access kiosks, fully integrated with FDA certified onsite digital diagnostics, are powered by our proprietary EHR cloud platform which encrypts patient consultations and medical records and allows our healthcare partners to provide efficient remote healthcare. Equatel’s existing strategic partnerships with some of the world’s largest telecom and data providers allows us to provide our services to a wide range of geographic regions and landscapes.
