Time Warner Cable Business Class started its first “Virtual Visit” Telemedicine trial with Cleveland Clinic. The solution is part of the MSO’s Home Health Monitoring strategy that seeks to enable healthcare providers to engage and interact with patients remotely.
Specifically, the “Virtual Visit” solution is expected to enable healthcare providers to offer services remotely to a patient’s home, interacting through a television equipped with video conferencing technology. The service is offered as a fully contained, secure, bundled offering, which includes connectivity, installation and on-site equipment such as modems and video cameras. In addition, the solution provides technical support for patients in their homes.
“Our healthcare solutions are designed to support medical providers looking to transform the delivery and quality of patient care by leveraging our advanced technology, operational scale and high speed network,” said Greg King, Senior Vice President and Chief Product and Strategy Officer, Time Warner Cable Business Class. "To truly transform the healthcare system of today and prepare us for the healthcare needs of tomorrow, we have to rethink how, and where, we deliver care to patients. We know that great care can be delivered where patients want to be most: in their homes, and we see telemedicine as a way to help us do that better and more efficiently," said Dr. Eiran Gorodeski, MD, Director of Center for Connected Care at Cleveland Clinic.
