MEYDOC® – Videoconsultations between doctor and patient at home
The growing numbers of the digital devices and transmission media as well as the provision of wider bandwidths has increased the interest in video communication in medicine. Video communication between doctors and patients in their home environment is an important health care topic. To this end MEYTEC presents a new solution MEYDOC® , which can be operated by doctors on laptop and/or tablet PC and by patients at home using a tablet PC or Smartphone. The MEYDOC® solution meets the high data security requirements needed in the medical after care sector.
The feedback from users is positive, not least because of the excellent service and support provided by the MEYTEC’s specialists during the early adoption stage. For patients living in rural areas with insufficient broadband connectivity can be supplied with a mobile router to provide an adequate bandwidth for video communication.
