Amersfoort - System integrator and managed service provider Avit launches Avit Video Consult. This solution enables practitioners and users to set up digital consultations efficiently and personally within the Cisco Webex environment. The solution works securely, quickly, simply, device independent and without complicated installations for practitioners and users. By using Cisco's Webex, the most secure video-meeting application, patient privacy is guaranteed. In addition, it is possible to enrich the platform with APIs and also to make integrations with EPDs, ECDs, PBMs and/or other applications. The entire user interface can be tailored to the organization, so that the caregiver has all the information immediately at hand. This solution supports the healthcare sector, to meet the increasing demand for digital consultations in an appropriate way.
A patient receives a unique link from the practitioner and logs in with a password. This is followed by a pre-consult check, where the equipment and the connection is tested so that no problems arise during the video consultation. During this check, the connection chain is checked: From computer, tablet or phone to the cloud solution and platform. Next, the caregiver enters a personal virtual waiting room, where he or she can read the news or play games, for example. In a clear dashboard, the practitioner can see who has completed the pre-check and is therefore in the waiting room and what appointment the user has. The practitioner can then start the video consultation. It is also easy to make contact (e.g. via chat) with the supporting outpatient clinic or any patient help desk.
Avit took care of the concept and development of the platform with help from the Cisco investment program called Digital Acceleration Netherlands (DVN). An investment program that aims to stimulate the digitalization of the Dutch economy and society.
Evert Smit, Sector Unit Manager Healthcare at Avit: "Cisco has been a reliable partner for years. We are therefore delighted that, as part of the DVN investment program, we have been given the opportunity to realize this platform. Not least because we hear from the healthcare sector that there is a great need for a secure, reliable and fully integrated video consultation platform with maximum flexibility. With our solution we can meet this demand."
Hendrik Blokhuis, Director DVN Cisco Netherlands: "In the past year the pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation, the need to offer services virtually is no longer an option but a requirement. With the Avit Video Consult offering, Avit offers a solution to this need. The healthcare sector is also transforming at great speed, and a solution like this is needed to continue to provide appropriate care in a society where healthcare providers and care seekers meet physically less and less often. A development that acutely demands the innovative solution that Avit now offers. And, moreover, a project that fits in perfectly with our DVN program."
