More than 80,000 healthcare professionals expected to benefit from Doctolib's service
HOLMDEL, N.J., April 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage (Nasdaq: VG), a global business cloud communications leader, announced that Doctolib, a leading provider of consultation management software, has been able to strengthen its commitment to healthcare professionals against the spread of COVID-19 with its telehealth service powered by Vonage's Video APIs.
"Teleconsultations enable healthcare practitioners to treat patients at a distance, offering invaluable treatment and guidance while limiting the spread of COVID-19. Doctolib is enabling around 100,000 video consultations every day, and another 30,000 doctors will be onboarded in the coming days, so we expect the number of teleconsultations to soar," said Sanche d'Abravanel, Patient Strategy Director at Doctolib.
d'Abravanel continued, "The Vonage Video API provides Doctolib with the technology we need for video, so we can be reassured that the system will continue to operate even if the load increases enormously."
Doctolib, the fastest growing and largest ehealth start-up in Europe, has enabled all French doctors and patients, including its existing 3,500 subscribers, to use the video consultation capabilities powered by Vonage's Video APIs free of charge for the duration of the public health crisis. Doctolib is fully financing the installation, equipment and management of the service and could benefit more than 80,000 healthcare professionals. Each health professional has support of €350 each year by the CNAM (French National Health Insurance Fund), to encourage more teleconsultations.
"With a long history as a leader in video, Vonage is powering the solutions of many of the world's leading telehealth services like Doctolib," said Omar Javaid, President, Vonage API Platform Group. "It's vital for healthcare providers to be able to deliver a continuous, effective service when the unexpected happens, and adopting telehealth services means that those forced to self-isolate can access care from practitioners with thousands of miles between them, an important step to protecting other patients and healthcare professionals."
Vonage has been a worldwide leader in webRTC video solutions since the webRTC standard was established in 2012. Featuring advanced security features such as encrypted media and recordings, and detailed analytics providing advanced insights into quality of service, Vonage's Video API Platform enables healthcare providers to build custom video applications to unlock the power of telehealth capabilities for clients, helping them to deliver virtual medical and health services in real-time and make deeper and more meaningful connections with their patients.
Vonage has released several new free solutions for healthcare providers that don't currently have the ability to operate in remote environments in response to the COVID-19 health crisis. Find out more about Vonage's current free offers and how its technology can help you deliver care remotely.
