HACKENSACK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vidyo, the integrated video collaboration technology leader announced today that Allscripts (NASDAQ:MDRX), an agnostic provider of electronic healthcare record technology has chosen the Vidyo.io™ platform to power virtual consultations directly embedded into the FollowMyHealth® patient portal. The on demand video visits can be launched directly from the patient portal workflow, simplifying remote consultations between physicians and patients.
“Allscripts strives to continually provide a fully engaged patient platform, giving patients and their families the ability to stay connected to their physicians, allowing them to be active contributors to their care,” said Kim South, General Manager, Allscripts. “Vidyo’s integrated video collaboration platform embedded into the Allscripts FollowMyHealth workflow is the ideal solution for patients and physicians to conveniently connect face-to-face over the web or our mobile app.”
