Vidyo Used by Ebola Patient at the Nebraska Medical Center for Communication with Family and Physicians
September 15, 2014, Hackensack, NJ – Vidyo, Inc., the video platform leader in healthcare, is providing video communications for Ebola patient Dr. Richard Sacra at the Biocontainment Patient Care Unit at the Nebraska Medical Center. Vidyo’s software-based visual communications platform plays a key role in connecting family members, physicians and nurses with Dr. Sacra as his treatment continues in the isolation unit at the Center, the largest facility of its kind in the United States.

The Nebraska Biocontainment Unit is one of only four specialized units in the country and is equipped to safely care for patients infected with highly contagious diseases, like Ebola, and includes access to video conferencing for patients.

Via a secure Vidyo connection, Dr. Sacra can communicate face-to-face with his wife. In scenarios that are time-critical, the human interaction provided through Vidyo’s unique platform is changing the way acute care is delivered throughout the country.

“The Nebraska Medical Center is a highly innovative, state-of-the-art healthcare institution, that requires superior, dependable technology,” said Ofer Shapiro, CEO, Vidyo. “Vidyo enables physician-to-physician collaboration, physician-to-patient consultation and patient-to-family connections, providing peace of mind and comfort when in person visits are not possible. Our platform allows physicians to communicate with patients wherever they are: hospitals, nursing homes, remote clinics, home environments and now in Biocontainment units.”

More than 30 percent of the top 100 integrated delivery networks in the U.S. have selected Vidyo’s platform with HIPAA-compliant encryption to power their telemedicine applications. Via a rich suite of APIs, the VidyoWorks™ platform has become an integrated component of the healthcare ecosystem of workflow tools, including some of the largest electronic medical records systems, ICU monitoring software, telemetry management software, carts, and direct to consumer care providers.
