Avaya helps rural German healthcare association speed medical-team collaboration

Dec. 21, 2016

Santa Clara, CA. Providing emergency patient care in rural Germany can challenge any healthcare organization. For St. Josef’s Hospital Weisbaden GmbH, a solution such as Avaya Scopia videoconferencing is a critical piece of the puzzle for coordinating care team and specialists across its three locations.

The regional clinic association of St. Josef’s Hospital Wiesbaden includes St. Josef’s Hospital Rheingau and Otto-Fricke Hospital in Bad Schwalbach. The association needed to enable healthcare specialists to attend to patients regardless of their location and consult with their care teams—sometimes on a moment’s notice. Reducing the time it took to travel to other locations for both patient consultations and meetings meant more time for patients.

To ensure excellent patient care, while facing increasing numbers of patients and rising health care costs, the association readily pursues new, innovative paths in technology, adding Avaya Scopia videoconferencing to the mix.

With Avaya Scopia videoconferencing connecting the three sites, collaboration between the sites has been simplified and strengthened, especially with daily case discussions. During the discussion of cases, doctors can view and discuss data and imagery together, such as X-rays, MRIs, or lab data. Without long travel times, experts from different disciplines are able to connect. Video conferencing provides St. Josef’s with the possibility of integrating patient data and vital data of all kinds in real time.
