Converge is Dedicated to Assisting Customers Through COVID-19 Challenges
TORONTO, March 24, 2020 /CNW/ - Converge Technology Solutions Corp. ("Converge" or "the Company") (TSXV:CTS) (FSE:0ZB) (OTCQX:CTSDF) is pleased to announce the addition of a new solution, Virtual Care Technology ("VCT"), which aims to assist healthcare providers to deliver the appropriate treatment to patients, as well as enabling remote workers across key industries amid the global pandemic COVID-19. VCT technologies offer agile and adaptable solutions in such pressing times given the current global and economic environment, the challenges it presents to key industries and the movement towards work from home policies.
Ensuring accessible healthcare and contributing towards general community safety and well-being are currently of the utmost importance on a global scale. In response, Converge has introduced its Cisco VCT solution which enables 24-hour communications to help monitor non-hospitalized patients in order to limit capacity constraints within hospitals, and maintain safe communications between patients, doctors, and healthcare providers. Similarly, VCT can be utilized for other crucial customers in need of voice, video and collaboration technologies as the demand for remote work solutions reaches an all-time high.
"In these unprecedented times, Converge is committed to keeping essential industries open and working effectively through support for remote workers and solutions, with a particular focus on assisting healthcare providers to limit the exposure of front-line workers via remote care solutions," said Shaun Maine, Chief Executive Officer of Converge. "Over the past several years, Converge has worked to develop a strong national footprint with dedicated employees who our customers can count on during this pandemic and into the future."
"As a proven industry leader, Converge is well-positioned to deliver digital services that meet varying community requirements," said Victor Martino, Vice President of Solutions Architecture and Engineering at Converge. "Our team, with decades of experience in healthcare IT, together with our collaboration architects can help determine the specific Cisco collaboration cloud solutions and end points that will work with organizations in any clinical setting."
VCT is ideal for managing outbreaks as it increases overall access to healthcare. Hospital systems, community health services, first responders, and nursing homes can use VCT's two-way audio/video collaboration and mobile solutions to:
- Perform regular check-ins with patients remotely;
- Provide prompt evaluations of new patients to ensure the best possible outcomes;
- Allow safe access care without the risk of infection;
- Continuously monitor patients;
- Respond quickly to urgent situations;
- Increase collaboration among facilities, clinicians, and first responders;
- Provide a home health option as hospitals won't be able to charge a differential for a private room where isolation is medically necessary;
- Provide an added layer of safety and peace of mind.
"Healthcare organizations are working relentlessly to take care of patients and staff during this pandemic," said Greg Berard, President of Converge. "Through our strong partnership with Cisco, Converge can offer game-changing communication platforms to ensure that responsible connectivity is not a concern as they continue to work to keep us all safe. Furthermore, as work from home policies continue to develop across multiple industries, our extensive vendor relationships and access to innovative technologies allow us to assist companies as they prioritize the safety and well-being of their employees while seeking minimal disruptions to business activities."
