Nexus Connected Healthcare Collaborates with AMD Global Telemedicine Inc.
Collaboration will significantly improve the ability of care providers to deliver medical services to remote and rural settings, as well as in high-security scenarios
Valencia, CA, September 4, 2012 – Nexus Connected Healthcare, a division of Nexus IS, Inc. has partnered with AMD Global Telemedicine Inc. (AMD) to enhance the delivery of telemedicine. AMD is the world's leading supplier of medical technology and solutions for telemedicine, providing total encounter management between patients and their medical providers. Nexus Connected Healthcare designs, builds, and supports information delivery systems that fit the specific business challenges of the healthcare industry and help improve patient care, communications, collaboration, security and provider efficiency.
This collaboration will significantly improve the ability of care providers to deliver medical services to remote and rural settings, as well as in high-security scenarios such as prison inmate care. AMD’s AGNES 3.0 software captures and securely transmits diagnostic medical device information to the browser of handheld devices or desktop PC’s in real time. By delivering that information over a secure and resilient network designed by Nexus Connected Healthcare specialists, medical professionals can perform remote diagnostics, remote training, collaboration sessions, translation services, and specialist consults—all while protecting the patient’s privacy and confidentiality.
Nexus Connected Healthcare connects people, process and technology to improve patient care. They have nearly 30 years of experience assisting customers in the inpatient, ambulatory, diagnostic services, and other care provider environments, delivering access and information at the point of care. They’ve been responsible for creating and implementing the technical designs for hundreds of hospitals, clinical data centers, and the Cisco Life Health Connections Clinic. Nexus’ team of expert design and installation specialists includes engineers who designed and built the first BIONAC medical grade network system now deployed by Cisco.
“We’re pleased to collaborate with AMD Global Telemedicine to expand our offerings in distance care and telemedicine,” said Donn Wurts, Director - Nexus Connected Healthcare. “AMD’s advanced diagnostic software helps us fully leverage the video endpoints and secure transmission networks that are already part of our distance care portfolio.
