"We are committed to helping our customers deliver better access to care for their patients regardless of their location at any time. Collaboration Live is a perfect example of how Philips is delivering an expanded experience for patients and healthcare professionals through telemedicine", said Gerois Di Marco, General Manager Global Ultrasound Services & Solutions at Philips. “Sonographers no longer have to feel they are alone or limited to only acquiring ultrasound images and preparing a report for subsequent clinical review. They can now call on the expertise of colleagues during ultrasound examinations to deliver on-the-spot accurate diagnosis that every patient deserves.”
Philips Collaboration Live lets users quickly and securely talk, text, screen-share, and video-stream directly from a Philips Ultrasound System EPIQ or Affiniti to a compatible remote PC or mobile device . In addition to allowing remote clinicians to view real-time diagnostic ultrasound images and communicate with the local clinician and patient to provide guidance and ask questions, the ultrasound user can give remote control  of the ultrasound system to the remote user, enabling them to enhance image quality, capture a new image or make a measurement. These combined features as well as the ability to check the calibration of the remote viewing screen provide the high diagnostic confidence needed to help optimize patient outcomes.
Collaboration Live can help hospitals standardize care across locations and support remote staff via protocol training, remote support during ultrasound examinations, and real-time communication between clinicians and patients, helping to ensure the same high standard of care wherever it is delivered. Collaboration Live is applicable in any area of medicine – such as breast imaging and hepatology, where ultrasound can provide important diagnostic information – including maternal fetal medicine when dealing with the potential of high-risk pregnancies, as well as cardiac imaging.
