Videoconferencing in medicine and its benefits

Since few years ago it is standardizing the use of videoconferencing for different medical applications. The unstoppable growth in communications capacity and standardization of use, have made the need for our medical professionals a constant demand.
Today 55% of internet traffic is running through video.
Reducing costs of videoconferencing systems, profitability and reliability have led to certain medical specialists rely on videoconferencing as a major tool for the training of doctors and academics.
Many pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers have also focused their interest in using this technology to support their customers and promote their products to potential customers.
There is no doubt and no one today puts into question, the significant cost savings. Anyone who has participated in a video transmission in current-generation systems, can tell the reality with which we can immerse ourselves in an open heart surgery transmitted from an operating room, with the experience of being virtually present there even having been able to communicate directly to the surgeon who is performing the operation in a fully interactive way.
The services that have to do with the video is estimated to grow this year about 16%. Mobile devices are taking the pole position in this technology race and this year will exceed personal computers.
Similarly, this year mobile access to video conferencing systems is estimated to grow by 14%, while conventional videoconferencing systems will make only 5%.
Nowadays it is not difficult to see a medical specialist who is at the airport, and connected with an iPad 3G, in route to a medical congress, consulted by another doctor who is  right at theo perating table  sending diagnostic images of the cliica procedure. At this time the distances have become so short, that we’ll find virtually deeply involved in the surgery itself.
Videoconferencing provides the same immersive experience that the satellite connection systems that have been used so far, but without such high costs , and it is a technology available at any time that is necessary, at no cost, only a Internet connection is required.
Today any mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android Smartphone or tablet) can connect to a high definition video conferences at very high rates of images per second.
Finally let me say that from Med & Home  since several years we have been investing in this technology. Our product viewLAB  for interventional rooms  incorporate videoconferencing from the beginning and allowed us over the years, experience what I have told you. Many transmissions to congresses and training courses, with the whole satisfaction of all those who have participated.
