Guardian 24/7 Offers Remote High-Touch Health Care via Glowpoint Video Managed Services
HILLSIDE, N.J., Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Glowpoint, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GLOW), a provider of cloud-based managed services for telepresence, video conferencing and collaboration, today announced that Guardian 24/7, a health care provider for high-profile executives, has selected Glowpoint's video managed services for providing remote diagnosis and patient collaboration using high-quality video conferencing. Guardian 24/7 will be using Glowpoint's services to augment their current device and software solution offerings, provided by AMD Global Telemedicine, the world's leading supplier of medical technology for telemedicine.
Guardian 24/7, which was formed to provide presidential-level health care to private-sector clients, builds personal "medical facilities" at client's home, office and other designated locations, which can even include planes or yachts. Rather than traveling to a public hospital facility, or even to a private clinic, Guardian patients can be remotely diagnosed from their in-home, pre-positioned medical ReadyRoom™, with clinical diagnostic and real-time imaging capability through live video conferencing equipment and connections for direct communications with the world's most high-profile doctors.
Guardian 24/7's doctors use products and software solutions from AMD Global Telemedicine in conjunction with Glowpoint's video managed services to provide the same level of service that is given to the President and Vice President of the United States, their families and other senior executive branch officials.
