Phoenix, AZ, March 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Interactive Multimedia Artists, Inc. (IMA) announces the Virtual Specialist™, a web-based software solution standardizing live video and data sharing between physicians, specialists and patients over existing PCs and IP networks. The Virtual Specialist™ enables medical visits to take place when and where they are needed without scheduling or travel. Placing a call to a specialist is initiated by touching (or clicking) the Virtual Specialist™ call button on a point-of-care PC which connects to a receptionists agent who in-turn transfers the call to the appropriate specialist. The Virtual Specialist™ delivers to the specialist’s PC― be they at hospital, office, home or mobile― a unified view of patient, EMR and diagnostic device feeds. If required, language and ASL interpreters can be conferenced into the session.
The heart of the Virtual Specialist™ is a software ACD (automatic call distributor) which switches and routes traffic between medical offices, elder care facilities, schools and homes. The Virtual Specialist™ provides a cost-effective solution that small and large medical networks can implement and completely integrate with existing IT while offering an elegant alternative to traditional telemedicine systems.
