swyMed Partners with Bassett Healthcare Network to Provide Highly Reliable Video Telemedicine Technology for its School-Based Health Centers

May 16, 2017 | Telepresence Options


swyMed and Bassett Healthcare Network have announced that they have joined forces to allow for highly reliable video telemedicine encounters within Bassett Healthcare's 15 School-Based Health Centers (SBHC).

Bassett Healthcare's SBHCs are medical offices located within school buildings, in partnership between school districts and their six network hospitals and 46 regional health centers. As a result of this initiative between Bassett Healthcare and swyMed, young patients are receiving reliable access to the healthcare services and support they require via real-time video telemedicine encounters, eliminating the need for students and parents to lose hours of school or work traveling to area hospitals for treatment.

Bassett Healthcare recognized the value that real-time video encounters would bring to SBHC's consultations (including behavioral monitoring) but connectivity issues including bandwidth limitations and high latency limited its effectiveness to scale the program.

Bassett Healthcare, based in Cooperstown, New York, serves a 6000 square mile area, which includes some of the most economically disadvantaged populations nationally. Within this region, schools were faced with challenges related to the reliability of their communications network which created a substantial barrier for entry when it came to telemedicine adoption.

swyMed's patented data transport protocol enables the delivery of exceptional-quality audio and video where most other platforms simply cannot maintain a connection. It is fully secure and provides unparalleled interoperability with existing EMRs, PACS and certified third-party diagnostic equipment, allowing Bassett Healthcare to easily integrate the platform within existing workflows and work with multiple cameras and medical devices during real-time video telemedicine encounters, all from a single, intuitive interface.
