If we take into account that, in a standard hospital, the average cost of external consultations represent approximately 20% of its expenses, it seems logical to prioritize alternatives that continue offering patients the best service from the comfort of their home while reducing costs. One of the best options is video-enabled care for Telemedicine for effective patient engagement at home.

Vidyo solutions for Telemedicine.

Utilizing the leading video platform for Telemedicine to embed a high-quality real-time video channel, it becomes easier to obtain the Triple Aim goal.

VidyoConnect allows for video interaction between clinicians and patients in remote care.

The doctor can sustain an effective patient engagement at home for the latter’s tranquility. provides a complete toolkit for developers to create in-house apps with video-enabled care for Telemedicine. This, for example, enables the doctor to communicate with chronic illness patients through a mobile. Thanks to this, healthcare systems can reduce transportation costs, which on average represents 10% of its total expenses.

Improved results.
