CTN is providing one free CTN Connect license as a value-added benefit to each participating CTN member site. CTN Connect also provides an online directory of participating CTN sites that can be accessed for video conferencing with the click of a button. Additional licenses and customized directories can be purchased for a small fee. CTN President and CEO Eric Brown commented, "In our continuing efforts to expand access to healthcare in California, CTN Connect opens up each CTN member's access to California's telehealth community from any broadband connection, wired or wireless."
"CTN's choice of the Arkadin/Vidyo telehealth solution underscores the value of Internet-based video conferencing for enhancing telehealth initiatives," says Mark Alexander, president of Arkadin North America. "We're honored to be a part of CTN's mission, especially considering their rigorous selection process. As CTN's members see the value of our affordable, highly scalable solution, we're confident the technology will be widely adopted."
"Significant improvements to visual communication technologies for use in telemedicine applications have been made in recent years, however, many practitioners and patients are still not able to receive the benefit of these advancements in healthcare due to limited access to dedicated networks and expensive equipment," said Dr. Amnon Gavish, Vidyo's Senior VP of Vertical Solutions. "Vidyo's technology offers a consistent, secure, high quality connection over the Internet without requiring specialized/proprietary end-points. This is why more and more providers such as CTN are using the Vidyo solution to offer members access to state-of-the-art telemedicine. Arkadin makes the decision easier by providing a turnkey, on-demand solution backed by their award-winning service and support."
