TANDBERG Introduces the Clinical Presence System (CPS), the Teleconferencing Solution Designed by Medical Professionals for Point of Care Applications
Posted on Monday, April 5, 2010
NEW YORK, NY, April 5, 2010 – Reinforcing its leadership in the rapidly growing telemedicine market, TANDBERG today expanded its award-winning telehealth offerings with the introduction of the new TANDBERG Clinical Presence System (CPS). Available in the U.S. and Canada, the CPS is the first teleconferencing solution designed collaboratively with medical professionals to offer the functionality and flexibility needed for use in medical institutions at the point of care.

With specialists sometimes unavailable in emergency rooms and rural areas, many patients are forced to wait until one can arrive, or have to be transported to a hospital where a specialist is present. This increases costs for patients and hospitals, but more importantly, wastes critical time for the delivery of care. The TANDBERG CPS allows specialists to be instantly available at the point of care via video, helping speed the administration of medicines and life-saving treatments.

"The TANDBERG CPS is the next generation in video communication for point of care," said Andrew W. Davis, senior partner, Wainhouse Research. "TANDBERG again proves they are a driving force in telemedicine – providing the image quality, system dependability, and device interoperability the company is known for. The CPS is a unique industrial design that reflects the specific requirements of medical professionals."

"TANDBERG has long been the leader in connecting doctors to patients through teleconferencing solutions, helping provide instant and accurate care to patients via video," said Joel Brunson, President, Public Sector at TANDBERG. "The introduction of the TANDBERG CPS will help bring video to the forefront of modern medicine by allowing more patients to receive the best possible care even when a specialist is miles away."
