Avizia Launches Integrated Telehealth Platform
Telehealth equipment, including carts and peripherals, connects physicians and specialists with each other and their patients at the point of care.Telemedicine solutions specialist Avizia announced the launch of its flagship telemedicine platform, Telehealth, which integrates carts, software and peripherals and is tied to providers' electronic health records (EHRs) and backend systems. The company offers pilot packages designed to address the most common modalities that health care providers are striving to address today, including telestroke, behavioral health, e-visits and urgent care. "When we founded Avizia, we saw that most vendors in the space were simply throwing pieces over the fence and expecting the hospital IT departments to put it all together," Mike Baird, CEO of Avizia, told eWEEK. "We felt like having a tightly integrated platform would be critical to the success of telemedicine and set out to build a telehealth platform. With Avizia, we have the hardware, software and professional services in a complete solution that make it easier to deploy, use and integrate with your existing systems." The company's Telehealth equipment, including carts and peripherals, connects physicians and specialists with each other and their patients at the point of care, while customers can tailor a solution fit to their needs or choose from a series of pre-packaged modality solutions that require minimal training.
"When a patient is having a stroke, or needs critical care of any sort, the last thing you want someone to think about is how to use the device, the software, the scope, etc.—which makes ease of use absolutely critical," Baird said. "We pride ourselves on building devices that are user-friendly—approachable and simple. Then you know a nurse or clinician is focused on the patient, without worrying if the device is ready to go or how to operate it."
