It’s never been clearer that Vidyo’s technology is an important driver of next-gen patient care advancements and can be beneficial for providers, patients and their families at every step of the patient care continuum.

The VidyoWorks platform is easily integrated into applications, workflows and custom Web portals to provide point-to-point and multipoint video, audio, content sharing and collaboration. the company offers both client and server application programming interfaces (APIs) for embedding into an existing application or Web portal, and a software development kit (SDK) for building new communication solutions that leverage the platform’s core technology.

The VidyoWorks Server API allows developers to customize infrastructure components, the pre-call experience and conference recording quotes whereas the Client API is used for customizing the in-call video client itself. Video conferencing functionality can be incorporated into the VidyoDesktop application with a designated Plug-in API.  Finally, the VidyoRoom Remote Control API enables integration of third-party control and automation systems to round out fully-featured, flexible communications applications.

The list of Vidyo-Enabled demonstrations at ATA is considerably lengthy and includes offerings from AMD Global Telemedicine Inc., American Well, GetWellNetwork, Great Lakes NeuroTech, Kubi by Revolve Robotics, MediSprout, Mercy, Metro, Samsung, SnapMD, West Corporation and Yorktel. The products enabled by this technology meet a range of patient care and telehealth needs such as home monitoring, virtual appointments, electronic health record (EHR) systems, remote consultation and connecting patients with distant loved ones.

“The top names in healthcare have embraced Vidyo and made it the technology of choice for real-time HD video communications,” said Eran Westman, CEO of Vidyo. “The VidyoWorks platform is ubiquitous in healthcare, from clinicians to payors to patients, and Vidyo is at the forefront of the telehealth industry.
