Iron Bow Technologies, an information technology solutions provider and global managed services provider to healthcare, government and commercial markets, and Vidyo, Inc., a company focused on embedded video technology, announced the planned launch of Iron Bow’s vCLINiC (powered by VidyoTM), a device intended to provide interactive video communication and enhanced patient monitoring. Iron Bow and Vidyo announced product development plans at the American Telemedicine Association annual conference in April.
“The future of virtual care is highly dependent on the interoperability of complementary technologies and strategic partnerships,” said Rene LaVigne, President and CEO of Iron Bow. “Vidyo’s integration with major Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendors such as Allscripts, Cerner and Epic, provide both ease of deployment, streamlined clinical workflows and protection of legacy investments.”
Founded on Iron Bow’s successful Clinical Care Device (CLINiC™) technology platform, Iron Bow’s vCLINiC will incorporate Vidyo’s proprietary end-point software for use with Vidyo’s hybrid cloud offering. The system will provide video quality and reliability, crystal clear audio, and incorporate design elements to minimize sound disturbance and ensure maximum levels of unit performance uptime. The vCLINiC offers maximum deployment flexibility as it can be mounted on a wall, desk, arm or cart, ideal for acute, post-acute and ambulatory settings.
“We’re very excited to see the vCLINiC deliver on a big need in the virtual care marketplace: an affordable solution that optimizes clinical resources, increases access to specialists and intensivists, reduces length of stay and associated costs, and enables virtual rounding and quick and easy coordination on complex cases,” said Michael Patsalos-Fox, CEO of Vidyo.
