With Demand for Virtual Health on the Rise, Mobile Heartbeat Announces Secure, HD Video Chat

Real-time video conferencing remotely enables face-to-face
interactions across the care continuum to meet growing needs in
e-consults, telemedicine, interpreter services and more

WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Healthcare communications company Mobile Heartbeat® has
announced a comprehensive mobile video chat function on its MH-CURE®
Platform that enables face-to-face, encrypted video conferencing on a
single application, along with the platform’s text, page, voice and
broadcast communications capabilities. Intuitively designed for
fast-paced healthcare environments, the secure functionality serves a
growing need among expanding—and increasingly virtual—care teams.

The announcement coincides with the industry’s shift toward telehealth,
in which more than three in four hospitals in the United States use
video or other solutions to remotely connect participants in the care
continuum, according to the American
Hospital Association
. Additionally, with reported
shortages
in both primary and specialty providers, hospitals are
increasingly opting toward video chat functions for
clinician-to-clinician consults, resulting in reduced
costs and enhanced care delivery
.

Growing demands in other use cases of handheld video chatting—including
those aimed at reducing
medical errors
during transfers of care and providing remote
interpreter services—also contributed to Mobile Heartbeat’s interest and
priority in developing such a product.

“The trends we’ve seen in telemedicine represent a significant shift in
the way clinicians work together—and all signs point to their continued
influence on care delivery,” said Peggy Teardo, Director of Clinical
Optimization at Mobile Heartbeat. “We’re thrilled to offer our customers
a HIPAA-compliant, easy-to-use resource to connect diverse teams for
face-to-face collaboration, no matter where they are, through the tap of
a smartphone button.”

As part of the unified MH-CURE Platform, our enterprise video chat
solution saves the added expense of video-specific hardware. Other
features:

  • High-definition video calling that connects in-facility and
    out-of-facility clinicians and support staff
  • Dual-side camera that can be flipped to switch from face-to-face to
    rear-facing
  • Cross-platform functionality and compatibility with both Android and
    iOS devices
  • TLS, HTTPS and SRTP encryption protocols
  • Ability to remotely enable or disable by user
