|The use of video in healthcare continues to play an increasingly important role when it comes to the care of patients, the ease of medical administration and record-keeping, and the general education of all parties involved. Having the ability to make these videos accessible is critical, whether for use by a medical team, a patient’s record, or for future learning – this knowledge transfer will save time, lives and money. Attend this webinar and hear from video content management solutions experts Jen Barry and Cara Daly, when they share how to deliver solutions for viewing video recordings from anywhere - computer, conference room, outside the office, on laptops, tables and smartphones. And hear Phil Wolford of Saint Vincent Health System share how they are using video content management solutions to help teams of doctors collaborate remotely on grand rounds, exchanging observations, recommendations and patient information to improve and accelerate patient care.
