COLD SPRING, N.Y., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Telemedicine software provider CloudVisit™ is bringing some holiday cheer to the ease and affordability of telepsychiatry with a free Google Chromebook. Providing a fully-secure telemedicine software, CloudVisit™ revolutionizes how psychiatrists and psychologists conduct online therapy. And while the CloudVisit™ software works perfectly on current laptops and desktops, products like the Google Chromebook make it even easier. New customers who sign up for a one or two year CloudVisit™ contract before December 31st will receive a free Google Chromebook valued at over $400. The Chromebook will come fully loaded and optimized with CloudVisit's™all-in-one telepsychiatry platform.
CloudVisit™ delivers unmatched online practice management tools that let doctors schedule, conduct, track, and invoice patient video appointments. As CloudVisit™ president and chief executive officer Daniel Gilbert sees it, the CloudVisit™ software combined with the ease and simplicity of the Google Chromebook make for a perfect pair. "Together, they create a two-pound mobile medical practice. Everything a doctor needs for successful telepsychiatry can be safely packaged and transported in a Chromebook. The free Chromebook is part of our dedication to ensuring doctors' success," he sums.
The two products were not designed in conjunction, but the fit is right. "The Chromebook is a nice, neat shell for broadband Internet," explains Gilbert. "That and the built-in webcam are all doctors need to use CloudVisit™ wherever they happen to be."
Affordable Telemedicine, Plus a Free Chromebook
During the holiday promotion, CloudVisitTM will also provide an added benefit to customers signing a two-year contract by offering the service for only $149.95 per month, along with waiving the setup fee. This amounts to a total savings of $1,215 off the standard price. Combined with the free Chromebook offer, CloudVisitTM users signing a two-year contract enjoy savings of over $1,500. CloudVisitTM also offers six-month and one-year service options priced at $224.95 and $199.95 per month respectively. For about the same investment as a cell phone plan, doctors can achieve significant practice growth and increased revenue without ever having to worry about expensive equipment or upgrades.
The experts at CloudVisit™ know ease of use and profitability are essential for telemedicine to be successful in a private practice setting. CloudVisit™ is packed with features, but the concise doctor portal centralizes availability, appointment confirmations, video session recording, and treatment notes. Patients are even billed automatically based on doctor-determined fees. Chromebook offers built-in Wi-Fi, more than 4 hours of battery life, and a 20 second boot-up. Doctors can realistically treat a full day's worth of patients remotely.
"There's no extra work for the office manager," explains Gilbert. "In fact, some doctors use telemedicine to reduce in-office time and overhead." By scheduling new patient consults, routine follow-ups, or patient monitoring online doctors can shorten office hours and potentially reduce staffing.
Protecting Patient Privacy
Both products excel when it comes to security. Doctor-patient connectivity with CloudVisit™ is backed by HIPAA-compliant security measures and all stored data is fully encrypted. With Chromebook, there's no risk of viruses and security fixes and software updates are automatically maintained. Gilbert adds, "Chromebook is a great way for doctors to separate professional and personal computer use."
Doctors who join CloudVisit™ for a one or two-year contract this month receive a free Chromebook fully loaded with the complete telemedicine platform and a free practice website. If doctors prefer to manage the CloudVisit™ software from their existing laptop or desktop, that's fine too; a simple registration verifies compatibility.
Currently available, CloudVisitTM Psychiatry is tailored to psychiatrists and psychologists. The same medically-minded connectivity will soon be available across the full range of healthcare specialties. http://psychiatry.cloudvisittm.com 888-503-3009

As enterprises around the world struggle with their digital transformation efforts, many are finding that innovative digital teams are moving much faster than their hidebound IT organizations. Rather than struggling to convince traditional IT to get with the digital program, executives are taking advice from IT research firm Gartner, and encouraging existing IT to continue in their desultory ways. However, many CIOs are realizing the dangers of following Gartner’s advice. The central challenge ...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
