UPMC Stroke Institute Uses Polycom Telemedicine Network to Save Lives of Patients With No Time to Lose
The University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is the second largest healthcare system in the United States and one of the leading nonprofit healthcare organizations in the country. Like many large healthcare systems, UPMC has worked hard to find ways to offer access to specialty care in the rural and medically underserved regions that surround its headquarters facility in Pittsburgh. To address these needs UPMC chose Polycom. UPMC deployed Polycom Practitioner Cart HDX mobile healthcare systems, Polycom desktop video conferencing solutions and Polycom People+Content technology. Now UPMC is able to provide patients and doctors at 14 hospitals with access to stroke specialists.
