Telehealth company Avizia recently announced a new partnership with VeeMed, a leading provider of physician services for telehealth. The partnership brings together Avizia’s telehealth platform and VeeMed’s provider services for high-acuity use cases including neurology, behavioral health, and intensive care. The partnership will offer flexible options to deliver high quality virtual care programs for healthcare organizations.
Through the collaboration, Avizia will be able to offer a full suite of telehealth tools for remote virtual health consultants and specialists.
Founder and CEO of Avizia Mike Baird spoke about the mutual benefits of the collaboration, saying the two organizations share a “commitment to bringing the best possible telehealth experience to healthcare providers and patients.” He continued, “VeeMed understands the importance of telehealth in the greater transition toward value-based care. Our partnership will ultimately benefit healthcare organizations eager to launch a system-wide strategy by giving them flexible options to meet the unique needs of their patient populations.”
This partnership could provide solutions that will further bolster organizations’ existing medical programs. With telestroke, Avizia’s technology provides VeeMed neurologists with enhanced camera control, as well as PACS image access and collaborative coordination features to more efficiently treat stroke patients during high pressure situations where every moment is precious.
Jim Roxburgh, VeeMed’s cofounder and COO, and former Dignity Health Telemedicine Network director, also spoke about the benefits of the pairing, saying, “A great physician network is strengthened by the technology that powers a health system’s telehealth program… Our partnership with Avizia allows our teams to successfully launch telestroke programs in less than four weeks, as opposed to months. We are excited to see what the future holds for our relationship.”
According to Avizia’s 2017 Closing the Telehealth Gap report, interest in telehealth among healthcare providers is at an all time high.
