Verizon Business and three partners have created a center aimed at accelerating adoption of connected healthcare technologies.
Visionable, Capgemini and Juniper Networks are partnering with Verizon Business on the center, which is in Kent, U.K. Among technologies on display at the center are Verizon’s private 5G and artificial intelligence capabilities from Juniper.
“In order to accelerate change in how healthcare is delivered, it is crucial that healthcare organizations come together and witness these transformational applications firsthand,” Scott Lawrence, the Group Vice President of Verizon Business in Europe, said in a press release. “This center has been developed to provide a dedicated space for professionals to see connected healthcare in action, and more importantly, work together as a community to build new applications and use cases. This collaboration will help revolutionize how healthcare is delivered.”
There is a dedicated collaboration hub aimed at stimulating technology concepts among partners. Demonstration zones will showcase technology.
The products and services on display the Verizon connected healthcare center are aimed at a variety of settings, including:
- Patient home/care home/virtual ward: Virtual wards provide A digital end-to-end journey from remote patient monitoring to specialist patient support and patient-led peer-to-peer support.
- Connected emergency services: Wearable technology to communicate with remote clinicians. It includes video, diagnostic[s] and data feeds to quickly share information with specialist clinicians via a connected device in the responder vehicle.
- General practice surgery: Use of multi-screen, multi-feed, collaboration platforms in delivering informed collaborative care.
- Hospital ward: The digitalization of care pathways for faster diagnosis and improved patient outcomes. It includes multidisciplinary teams collaboration.
- Rehabilitation center: Enablement of virtual group consultations between a care provider and a group of people/patients to support recovery after discharge.
Verizon Business has made a couple of moves within the past few months that seem to complement the new center.
In March, Verizon Business enhanced the BlueJeans telehealth video conferencing platform. New features include a Command center dashboard and patient image capture.
Verizon Business said last November that it is partnering with Care Everywhere, a platform that healthcare professionals can use to securely access data, share resources and collaborate.
