Next-generation healthcare empowered by Visionable and Verizon.
The future of healthcare will call for a hybrid of digital and face-to-face care. This is the only way to overcome healthcare’s biggest challenge to date: not enough doctors to treat the growing number of citizens who need care.
Digital care needs to become the default route to care, with in-person treatment only happening when it’s needed. Successful virtual healthcare systems need a secure, next-generation platform and fast, reliable connectivity capabilities. Together, Verizon and Visionable provide just this with the aim to improve outcomes, save lives and save money. We call it Care Everywhere.
The Connected Healthcare Ecosystem: Visionable and Verizon reimagining healthcare
A visionary partnership
We provide the secure, real-time clinical collaboration platform, whilst Verizon ensure hospitals have access to fast, reliable, and secure connectivity. Together, we empower patients and make it easier for healthcare staff to deliver care when and where it is needed.
Our partnership makes virtual healthcare at scale a reality. With our next generation platform and Verizon’s extensive digital infrastructure, fragmented healthcare environments can be reliably connected in real-time.
Sharing expertise across the globe reduces healthcare inequities that many citizens experience. Allowing specialists to collaborate digitally in an environment specifically design for healthcare, has the potential to revolutionise global healthcare for all.
Access to medical grade imaging using highly available bandwidth enables efficient and personalised care. Clinicians can be where they need to be at any time, connecting with patients at home, in the community, at work, at the hospital or in an ambulance.
Verizon’s cutting-edge cyber security, with end-to-end encryption of personalised data provides clinicians and patients confidence that connections are safe and secure for all. Recognised the world over, Verizon is a leader in network security and already securely transmits data across cloud, mobile and IoT.
Our work so far
Our vision for the connected healthcare system is already improving patient outcomes in stroke care and through virtual consultations powered by Visionable.
Revolutionising Stroke care
The Visionable Collaboration Platform has been supporting the East of England Stroke Telemedicine Partnership for the last decade. A shortage of Stroke specialists combined with long travel times to hospital was providing a significant challenge to the East of England, who were unable to meet national target times for delivering thrombolysis. Using Visionable, specialists were able to remotely triage, treat and support patients, leading to a significant reduction in door-to-needle time and in typical patient stays. Driving down stays from 17 to 2 days on average, the scheme has saved £19.2 million on admissions since 2010. Perhaps more importantly, patients’ recovery times are much faster, and the chances of suffering lifelong physical, cognitive, or mental disabilities are also much improved.
Improving patient outcomes
Virtual Consultations aren’t a new concept. Visionable’s Consultation Platform has been helping Southern Health NHS healthcare professionals and patients meet virtually since 2018. Using our secure consultation platform that is specifically designed for medicine, clinicians have access to records, diagnostics, and medical-grade imaging, making care effective and efficient. From a patient’s point of view, they can receive the care they need from the comfort and convenience of their own home, reducing did-not-attend rates.
