Cisco Extended Care Improves Patient Engagement

Cisco’s new Extended Care Solution enables patient engagement and care team collaboration at any time and from anywhere including home, office and other remote locations.  Cisco Extended Care is a new browser-based health and wellness collaboration solution platform that features ad hoc and scheduled video consults, secure messaging, customizable pre-appointment questionnaires, a video library platform and the ability to manually capture readings from personal wellness devices.

Cisco Extended Care SolutionIn addition, the solution offers open application programming interfaces (APIs), enabling users to integrate with other third-party applications and environments, such as video workflow, into their existing patient portal solution, thus protecting existing investments.

“Cisco’s Extended Care solution offers our customers a new way to cater to patient wants and needs, ultimately providing patients with a better experience and increasing their engagement and involvement with their own care,” said David Plummer, general manager, Cisco’s Care-at-a-Distance Solutions. “By allowing patients and their care teams the opportunity to connect for both ad hoc and prescheduled video consults, and by providing secure messaging capabilities and online questionnaires, our hospital and clinic customers will be able to operate in a more efficient manner.”

A recent Cisco survey showed that nearly 74% of the 1,547 respondents were open to sharing medical information online, and the majority of those patients were comfortable with the idea of communicating with doctors using technology instead of seeing them in person. This shift in consumer attitude opens up new opportunities for hospitals and clinics to increase efficiency, while at the same time providing greater continuity of care, driving wellness education and potentially lowering the cost of care delivery. With new lines of communication and an increased dialogue between patients and doctors, hospitals can hope to see lower rates of readmittance.

If you are planning to attend HIMSS14 in February, be sure to visit the Cisco booth (#1453) to see first-hand how Cisco Extended Care can help your organization streamline and improve patient care.

Cisco Brings Joy for One Very Special Family Reunion

Every year for the last seven years, Cisco and its Santa Connection program have brought video collaboration technologies to hospitals across North America for child patients to virtually connect with Santa Claus in the North Pole.

The children get the opportunity to ask Santa what they want for Christmas either by video chatting on iPads using Cisco Jabber or through Cisco TelePresence and mobile carts. For these children, it’s a chance to enjoy the holiday season during their hospital stay.

Cisco Santa Connection 2013This year, Santa visited U.C. Davis Children’s Hospital virtually on December 12, and spoke with several of the kids – each with unique requests for what they wanted for Christmas.

But one boy named William, who’d been staying at U.C. Davis due to a recent injury, asked Santa for something really special. When it was his turn, he told Santa that all he wanted for Christmas was for his father to come home from Cairo, Egypt.

William’s father has been stationed overseas in the military, but little did William know that his father had been granted leave to come home to see him. So Cisco and U.C. Davis thought they could make their reunion extra special.

On December 19, during William’s dad’s flight back from Cairo, Cisco asked Santa to make a special visit to see William. Santa then brought an iPad to William’s bedside for a call with his dad. Santa told William his dad was currently at the embassy of Cairo – only the call “mysteriously” dropped.

Santa then told William instead to close his eyes and wish for his Dad to be there in person. And just seconds later, William’s dad came through the door!

Needless to say, William, his dad and the rest of the family were overjoyed to have everyone together again.

We were so pleased that Cisco, the U.C. Davis Children’s Hospital staff and Santa helped to make William’s wish come true just in time for Christmas!
