PLEASANTON, Calif. - Jun 10, 2009 : Polycom, Inc. [Nasdaq: PLCM], the global leader in telepresence, video, and voice communications solutions, and AMD Global Telemedicine Inc.(AMD) today announced an integrated voice and video solution for telehealth providers. The AMD Dynamic Encounter Network, or ADEN™, which allows for capture, control, transmission and management of robust medical device data, now incorporates Polycom's Converged Management Application™ (CMA™ ) and Polycom CMA Desktop™ client in its on-screen display.
ADEN™ is an IP based, publicly addressable, on-demand secure extensible data transmission conduit for the delivery of encrypted medical device information. ADEN™ features embedded EMR integration capabilities, is unified communications ready, requires no special data network configuration, and is designed to work on virtually any network.
The Polycom Converged Management Application (CMA) simplifies the provisioning and management of visual communication solutions, and with CMA Desktop, practitioners are able to see live video sessions from anywhere over an Internet connection. CMA Desktop is a highly scalable and cost-effective video collaboration application for personal computers and an excellent means for clinicians to participate in telehealth sessions regardless of location.
This solution offers a secure, easy-to-use, real-time view of the patient being seen, their electronic health record (EHR) and all relevant medical device images and data. The integration of these systems can dramatically streamline a clinician's workflow by offering the lowest cost, highest quality, completely mobile telemedicine offering available today. As long as caregivers have an Internet connection and a browser, they can access the integrated ADEN™/CMA Desktop solutions. CMA Desktop has a low cost of deployment, and the ability to add providers to the network for very little cost, which means telemedicine providers can expand their networks with very little additional overhead. Additionally, the data can be captured, recorded, and replayed when needed.
"Polycom is a long-time and very important partner of AMD," said Steve Normandin, president of AMD Global Telemedicine. "The ability to integrate Polycom visual communication solutions into our medical care systems has proven invaluable to our customers. As a Polycom ARENA partner, AMD can leverage Polycom technology, marketing, and sales channels in its telehealth offerings, ensuring that our customers have best-in-class video as part of their overall solutions."
Polycom ARENA enables ecosystem partners such as AMD to develop, test and certify interoperability between their solutions and the Polycom platform of voice, video and content collaborative solutions.
Ron Emerson, Polycom global director of Healthcare, added, "AMD Global Telemedicine is known in the market for its innovative and high quality systems. AMD Global Telemedicine utilizing Polycom video conferencing in ADEN means our joint customers will have the most flexible, easy-to-use telemedicine solution that the market has long been waiting for; one that can used anywhere, anytime, allowing for ultimate flexibility in telemedicine today."
