Children's Health Fund Selects RHUB Communications Web Conferencing and Remote Support Solutions

April 24, 2012

RHUB Communications, a provider of Web conferencing and remote support appliance technology, unveiled that it is supporting Children’s Health Fund (CHF), which helps provide comprehensive healthcare to medically underserved children, has selected the TurboMeeting product for Web conferencing and remote support capabilities.

TurboMeeting from RHUB Communications is used as a key tool for CHF annual meeting. With its remote support capabilities, TurboMeeting provides a reliable and cost-effective tool to help the CHF staff communicate remotely between its national network of pediatric programs in some of the nation's most disadvantaged rural and urban communities.

The Web conferencing solution is also used for educational sessions and help medical teams collaborate on new research from remote locations, national collaborations. Additionally, the video conferencing solution helps them train staff on new tools such as the ones used to track asthma rates, specialist referrals, and other health-related needs for the children.

"Every penny spent on administrative costs takes resources away from caring for a child," said Dr. Jeb Weisman, CIO at Children's Health Fund, in a statement. "CHF's investment in RHUB's TurboMeeting has also allowed our small support organization to function as if it is two to three times the size. It allows us to bypass the recurring expenses required by on-line Web conferencing services because we own the device."

CHF provides a full mobile electronic health record system. The organization supports 23 programs in 18 states and the District of Columbia and a fleet of 50 mobile clinics serving thousands of children each year. CHF chose TurboMeeting as a cost-saving measure to control the services, predict the costs, deliver services with flexibility, reliability and be independent.

In another significant development in the video conferencing industry, Voxeet announced the launch of a new product at the DEMO Spring 2012 conference in Santa Clara, California. Voxeet enables teams to have crystal clear, relaxed and more productive conversations. The Voxeet interface shows each person on the call in order to resolve confusion over who’s actually speaking.
