Video conferencing to revolutionise life-saving treatments

VIDEO-conferencing may change the way rural and regional residents with deadly illnesses receive life-saving treatments.

A five-year project that allows city-based doctors to provide cancer care to bush patients is set to improve the outlook for those battling cancer and other major health problems.

Cancer survival rates for patients from rural areas are quite low compared to people living in big cities.

Health problems are often made worse because the quality of screening and treatment options in smaller health catchments is not always as good as those in cities.

Rural and regional patients may also not receive treatments as fast as their urban counterparts.

Results of the study involving the Townsville Cancer Centre, Townsville Hospital and James Cook University will be released on Monday. The project compares the chemotherapy regimens delivered to TCC and Mt Isa Hospital cancer patients by city-based doctors between 2007 and 2012.

The medicos used video conferencing and other tele-health services to prescribe potentially life-saving treatments that were the same quality of those delivered in major cities.

Associate Professor Sabesan said the study proved high-quality cancer care could be safely provided at rural centres instead of patients having to travel to major cities.

“Our study is the first to show that many types of chemotherapy can be administered in rural centres, without compromising safety and quality, by tele-oncology models of care,” Associate Professor Sabesan writes in today’s Medical Journal of Australia.

“By expanding the scope of practice and capabilities of rural health care systems through the use of tele-health models, rural patients may gain access to chemotherapy and other complex medical therapies similar to that of urban patients.”

3 Reasons Videoconferencing Can Save Your Agency Money and Hassle

Learn how video conferencing technology reduces travel costs and increases productivity for law enforcement

Did you know that Business travel costs a tremendous amount of money. U.S. business travel in 2014 reached $292.2 billion and is expected to advance 6.2 percent in 2015 to $310.2 billion, while total person-trip volume is expected to increase 1.7 percent to 490.4 million trips for the year. That’s why law enforcement agencies are considering video collaboration tools to reduce the cost and hassle associated with meetings.

A recent survey on PoliceOne found a shifting attitude among police departments and law enforcement agencies toward video collaboration tools, increasingly viewing them as a great and cost-effective alternative to travel. In fact, nearly 50 percent of police respondents already use video daily at their department and nearly 60 percent said they would consider using video conferencing instead of incurring travel expenses.

So why are agencies starting to look at video conferencing as an attractive alternative to setting aside budget dollars for business travel? Because video conferencing technology has come a long way and is starting to prove it’s just as effective as face-to-face meetings.

– It’s more cost effective than travel

– It’s inter-operable from any device, anywhere

– It’s simple to use and supported by cloud security

Can video conferencing up your productivity and reduce costs?

If you haven’t heard the words lately, just wait. Video conferencing is becoming the most in-demand application of the new information age. This upsurge is prompted by three factors:

  • Globalization and the need for “virtual” work groups made up of experts from many different locations require a technology that allows people to meet face-to-face with high productivity on a moment’s notice. Only video conferencing meets this demand.
  • Changes in video conferencing technology, particularly high definition and what’s being called video presence, are giving video conferences the same sense of connection and collaboration as a live meeting. In fact, they’re better than live, because video conferencing allows data sharing that is not possible in live meetings, plus the recording of video conferences provides necessary records for security and regulatory requirements. In addition, new video conferencing technology has excellent security plus advanced management and scheduling capabilities. Also, the cost of video conferencing end points has decreased ten fold since 1998. Travel costs have escalated.
  • The IP (Internet Protocol) revolution has lead to “IP everywhere” making the transmission of video conferences far less expensive, much easier to use, more reliable and significantly more scalable to meet a company’s growing requirements.The bottom line is that every company, big or small, must evaluate video conferencing as a possible application
