Gen-i to launch ‘Gen-i Virtual Clinic’

A cloud based video conferencing service developed for the health sector

AUCKLAND, 24 October 2012 – Gen-i today announced the launch of ‘Gen-i Virtual Clinic’ at the upcoming Health Informatics New Zealand (HINZ) Conference in Rotorua. Gen-i Virtual Clinic is a secure cloud based video conferencing service that enables multiple users at different locations to connect over video anytime, anywhere and from any standards-based video enabled device, including mobile devices such as tablets and mobile phones.

Currently the only Connected Health compliant video conferencing solution, Gen-i Virtual Clinic is a subscription based, scalable, on-demand service tailored to meet the specialist needs of the health sector.

Gen-i Virtual Clinic also supports the capture and storage of meetings for future review and/or educational use, and is aligned with the National Health IT Plan, offering a nationwide service to support person centred shared care.

Developed alongside Central Cancer Network (CCN), Gen-i Virtual Clinic enables consultants from a number of disciplines and other specialist staff to connect via video, reducing the time, health and cost impacts of travel, and fostering multidisciplinary collaboration amongst health professionals.

The collaboration and efficiency benefits are tangible for CCN, which links together the organisations that provide care for people with cancer across the Central Cancer Network area. CCN is using Gen-i Virtual Clinic to enable Multi Disciplinary Meetings, to allow expert and peer review of patient cases and recommended treatment without the necessity of experts having to travel in the regions.

Phyllis Meier, CCN Project Manager said the benefits include faster access to experts, less travel, better solutions for patients and the ability to share knowledge and training.

“In the future we wish to extend these meetings to other Cancer Networks around the country, allowing the expertise to be shared more easily and ultimately resulting in better patient care,” says Meier.

Jo-Ann Jacobson, Gen-i Health Sector Business Manager, said Gen-i Virtual Clinic will remove many of the initial barriers to entry, as it is a secure cloud based service that supports multiple connections via any telecommunications carrier and utilising existing video enabled hardware such as mobile devices.

“Gen-i Virtual Clinic will provide our health sector clients with the flexibility to achieve the right mix of video conferencing solutions and the right level of performance, security and compliance, for a flexible per month subscription,” says Jacobson.

“Our clients will gain access to high quality video conferencing services without the cost and hassle of switching carriers, managing bridge capacity, managing integration with external organisations, or investing in new hardware where they have existing resource. The ability to scale up and subscribe to value-add services on an ‘as needs’ basis provides total flexibility.”

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
