ViTel Net, a pioneer in the telemedicine/telehealth industry, is joining forces with the MGH MD PnP research program, a leader in developing advanced integrated clinical environments, to support the SmartAmerica Challenge for healthcare, a White House Presidential Innovation Fellow project.
"Our current healthcare system is comprised of a loose collection of devices and applications that typically are not interoperable and require manual interventions to connect data. This lack of integration and coordination creates inefficiencies and potentially dangerous conditions," says
"With a proven history of success in the evolving field of telehealth, ViTel Net is uniquely positioned to maximize value from ongoing technological advances," he says. "We are delighted to be collaborating with MD PnP on this project and look forward to assisting the SmartAmerica Challenge for healthcare."
ViTel Net enables providers to deliver better quality care and patients to receive their care more conveniently and affordably using telehealth solutions that connect them remotely with one another--anytime, anywhere across the continuum of care. ViTel Net uses its powerful and highly adaptable telehealth technologies to deliver customized telehealth solutions that are easy-to-use, highly scalable, and can quickly adapt to meet the rapidly changing needs of healthcare delivery.
The MD PnP Program provides national clinical leadership and technology expertise to a growing portfolio of collaborators in the domain of medical device interoperability. The Federally-funded research program provides standards development leadership to support medical device interoperability and an open-source test bed of device drivers and integration tools called "OpenICE" that can be used to enable the cost-effective development of innovative third-party medical "apps" for treatment, research, safety and quality improvements, equipment management, and adverse event detection and reporting when using networked medical devices for clinical care.
"We have been working to accelerate the adoption of medical device interoperability by providing building blocks (use cases, standards, a neutral lab test bed environment, and open research tools) and by changing clinical and market expectations of what can be achieved," notes
