An article that we recently read - Telehealth & Telemedicine: By the Numbers shows some very interesting statistics related to Telehealth & Telemedicine – such as – The average reduction in mortality rates in the U.S.A. due to the use of telehealth systems is a staggering 22%.

A “not to be missed” event if you are a senior health and social care professional wanting to gain a comprehensive insight into Government plans for Long Term Care Conditions.
With around 350 senior clinical and service managers attending this year’s event, it’s a great opportunity to mingle, share views and discuss with your peers, how care for patients with long term conditions is taking shape.
MultiSense Communications will be there supporting the conference and demonstrating our technologies that can really make a difference by further improving care and outcomes, reducing costs and helping to improve Consultant’s and Clinician’s productivity.

We read a really interesting article from Paul Corrigan, giving his theories on why changes within the NHS, specifically the introduction of telemedicine are often thwarted simply because individuals do not want change. He even goes so far as to say that he feels that there is a “conspiracy within the NHS against the implementation of step change”. Paul Corrigan also points out some of the massive benefits that can be achieved through the implementation of telehealth.
As a company, MultiSense Communications, with our dedicated Healthcare Division have worked hard to build the good relationships that we enjoy with our NHS customers, enabling fears of change to be allayed as these relationships are, amongst other things built on trust. Why not have a look for yourself at some of the Healthcare work that we undertake.
Lifespan, who are a not for profit healthcare group, consisting of five hospitals in Rhode Island, USA are currently conducting a pilot telemedicine study to help improve depression in elderly nursing home rehabilitation patients. It’s been acknowledged that there is a shortage of mental health professionals available to visit, as depression is very common in nursing home patients. The use of telemedicine provides access to mental health professionals via secure video, email and chat.

MultiSense Communications designed and installed a telepresence solution for the main conference room in our Paris office. The solution includes two LCD displays, a short throw projector and screen, ceiling mounted microphones and two video cameras, all of which are controlled from a touch-screen console, programmed by MultiSense Communications. From a map of the room layout, displayed on the touch-screen, we can select to display content from any of six laptops located in the conference room or content from far-end participants. A number of pre-set camera positions can be easily selected from the touch-screen, from where they can also be manually controlled.
MultiSense Communications listened to our needs and created a solution that exceeded all of our expectations, giving us the ultimate in flexibility, functionality and ease-of-use.
