Yorktel Touts Removal of ‘Historic Barriers’ to Telemedicine Adoption

On Tuesday, Yorktel unveiled what it calls Univago Healthcare Edition (Univago HE) — a “transformative addition to its enterprise video services platform, built specifically for healthcare.”

MHW can now confirm that Univago HE will be shown on stand H110 at the UK Health Show, Olympia London, on September 27th.

From this morning’s official release:

Univago HE is the first and only all-inclusive telemedicine video services platform that delivers the versatility, reliability and security vital to affecting widespread telemedicine adoption. Designed from the ground up explicitly for telemedicine applications, Univago HE™ has patent-pending technologies that ensure reliability and quality in every critical connection between patient and clinician, all with “touch-of-a-button” simplicity.

In short, Univago HE is a fully managed subscription-based service comprised of everything needed to connect patients by video with remote clinicians, healthcare experts and family members.

“The demands for telemedicine are growing, but the industry has not yet delivered at the rate we all expected a few years ago,” said Yorktel SVP of Healthcare, Peter McLain. “Clinician adoption and widespread utilisation are held back by video conference room technology that is neither stable nor reliable enough for the clinical setting. The video technology at the core of telemedicine needs to just work 24/7, 365 days a year; it should fade into the background as clinicians focus on delivering patient care.”
