The cardiac surgeons at Evelina London Children’s Hospital in the U.K. are responsble for over 500 surgeries on year. So they can meet that challenge, the surgeons use telemedicine to examine high-quality scans during operations. In addition to the expert care, the benefits include:
- Saves 1,300 hours in consultant and surgeon time each year
- Reduces the time required for review of interoperative scans from 90 to 5 minutes
- Enables cardiologists to see more patients
For more details about the hospital’s use of telemedicine solutions, you can read the Polycom’s summary.
