Yorktel Unveils All-Inclusive Telemedicine Services via Univago Healthcare Edition

September 05, 2017

Telemedicine is one of the greatest innovations as it allows patients to competently see all of their doctors without having to leave the comforts of their homes. The biggest challenge has been ensuring that the patients are receiving the exact same treatment both in-office as well as via videoconferencing. That is where Yorktel comes in as today, they unveiled their all-inclusive telemedicine service, Univago Healthcare Edition (Univago HE). HE is designed specifically for the healthcare industry and allows for patients to connect directly with not only specialists but family members, remote clinicians, and healthcare experts.

“Univago HE represents an important breakthrough in the challenge to make Telemedicine a routine component of the provider workflow. It creates the foundation to build out a growing array of Telemedicine services that will serve the needs of providers to improve the outcomes for patients regardless of the current staffing levels and in-house capabilities,” Victor Camlek, Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst for Transformational Health, said.

Added Peter McLain, Yorktel’s SVP of Healthcare: “The demands for telemedicine are growing, but the industry has not yet delivered at the rate we all expected a few years ago. Clinician adoption and widespread utilization 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.”

Univago HE is HIPAA-compliant, which means that all of the patient’s information will be kept under lock and key while the touch-of-a-button appeal is what makes telemedicine so desirable, no matter what your ailment. This is not the end for HE as they have bigger plans to help those who need long-term and stay-at-home assistance, which would really be the ultimate game changer.
