Verizon Business and Visionable Join Forces to Make Connected Healthcare a Reality
What you need to know:
LONDON, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon Business and Visionable, a leading health technology company based in the U.K., have joined forces to empower the next generation of healthcare.
The strategic partnership will bring together Verizon’s extensive secure network infrastructure and Visionable’s unique, patented, next-generation digital healthcare collaboration platform, to form a single secure infrastructure that helps enable healthcare professionals to access data, collaborate and share resources. The partnership will focus on opportunities with the APAC and EMEA regions under the banner of Care Everywhere.
In addition, the two companies will launch a specialized technology-led Connected Healthcare Center, based in the UK to be opened in 2022. The center will enable the co-creation of technology concepts as well as showcase new technologies, such as Verizon’s private 5G, and will demonstrate the benefits of digital technologies within various healthcare environments from control centers, hospital wards, General Practices (GPs) consultation rooms, care homes and connected ambulances.
“The challenge facing the healthcare industry is that professionals are often forced to work in silos as a result of strict compliance regulations, patient privacy concerns and technology restrictions - this is about to change,” said Scott Lawrence, Vice President of Verizon Business EMEA. “Technologies such as private 5G, have the potential to shift the landscape around how healthcare is delivered; empowering professionals, sharing intelligence and improving the quality of care they provide. This initiative with Visionable provides a secure single infrastructure on which healthcare providers can collaborate to help diagnose conditions and share medical intelligence, all within a secure and compliant environment.”
Many healthcare providers are lookin to digitalize their services to provide more direct care to local communities as well as develop professional collaboration across healthcare networks, both of which would be significantly enhanced across one single secure infrastructure. For example, the U.K.’s NHS recently announced the creation of 42 Integrated Care Systems (ICS) across England.
“The future of healthcare calls for a hybrid of digital and face-to-face care,“ said Alan Lowe, CEO and Co-Founder of Visionable. “Successful cutting edge virtual healthcare systems need a secure, next-generation platform with fast, reliable connectivity. Together, Verizon and Visionable provide just this with the aim to improve outcomes, provide better care and save money.”
Lynne A. Dunbrack, Group Vice President, Public Sector for IDC said, “5G technology with its performance enhancements of increased speed, reduced latency, and improved density will enable expansion of care everywhere use cases. Healthcare organizations are starting to leverage a wide range of connected health technologies to provide urgent, chronic, and preventive care to patients on-demand anytime and anywhere to provide convenient access to high-quality, cost-effective healthcare services.”
