Conferencing Zone Week in Review: Impacts on Healthcare, Remote Workers & Legal System

April 22, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.

The Conferencing community this week took a look at the different ways video conferencing can be used in several industries. Our first industry of focus was healthcare, and, based on Credence Research findings, it’s safe to say that the future looks bright. Researchers believe that, over the next decade, conferencing technology will play a much more important role in healthcare because patients and doctors alike have become more comfortable with it. There are endless possibilities as to how video conferencing can be utilized in the healthcare industry. Find out more HERE.

On a more surprising note, video conferencing is also being used to simplify the legal system these days. Just because someone is in prison or lives in a bad location doesn’t mean they should be forced to work with bad lawyers. Thanks to video conferencing, quality lawyers are able to counsel inmates from afar. The technology is also helping to speed up the appeals process, as inmates don’t have to make appearances in courtrooms to plead their cases anymore. Everything you need to know is HERE.

Next up, video conferencing is also revolutionizing the workforce. Remote workers no longer seem like faceless employees that keep a business going. Video conferencing makes it possible for them to connect with coworkers and clients just as easily as if they were in the office. Unfortunately, a recent study out of Marquette University found that some people are uncomfortable with video conferencing, and the reason why may surprise you. Find out why HERE.

Aside from different industries, video conferencing is also being brought to new areas of the world. FreeConferenceCall.com, a provider of free and secure video conferencing and collaboration tools, announced this week that it will be expanding its services to India. Of course, conferencing technology was available in the country before now, but FreeConferenceCall.com promises to deliver more capabilities. You can continue reading HERE.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Conferencing  space.
