Polycom is uniquely addressing this proliferation, with highly secure mobile video solutions across multiple tablets and smartphones. The resulting outcome is cost-effective support for face-to-face communications from anywhere, with Polycom aggressively meeting the growing demands of the market. RealPresence seamlessly interoperates with a broad range of applications, protocols, call control systems, and end points. In reality, customers may communicate to multiple parties, even addressing an entire conference room using only a tablet.
Orlando Health, a provider of health care services in central Florida, puts RealPresence mobile in front of it’s neurology clinicians to improve the quality of life for the practitioners, and most of all, connect doctors with patients in real-time.

“Stroke treatment is intense and complicated,” said Carlos Carrasco, corporate director of business development and innovation at Orlando Health. “Timeliness is critical, and many factors must be taken into consideration before a treatment such as the tPA protocol can be administered. Treatment decisions must be made fast and those decisions can have enormous implications for patient outcomes. Use of Polycom video collaboration has helped physicians access video conferencing to make clinical assessments more rapidly, in turn helping to accelerate ‘door to needle’ treatment timelines. That precious time can change a person’s life forever.”
