First Look: Equatel Health Platform Embeds Vidyo

Vidyo, Inc. — a 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 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, 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.

“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.”
