Cloudbreak Health, unified telemedicine and video medical interpretation solutions provider, announced that it has completed integrating the Zoom video conferencing service into its telemedicine platform as part of its pioneering interoperability efforts, enabling interpreters to support timely care delivery to help with the current public health crisis.
“We were the first company in the nation to bring video interoperability and telemedicine integration to market for video medical interpreting,” said Jamey Edwards, CEO of Cloudbreak. “Our recent Zoom integration is another step forward in helping our nation’s doctors and patients cope with the COVID-19 pandemic which is driving an explosion of growth in the need for telemedicine. This integration will increase access to care for millions of patients nationwide who so desperately need services, while also keeping our frontline healthcare workers safe.”
Healthcare providers will now be able to easily access Cloudbreak’s services, including secure, live remote interpretation in roughly 250 languages, through Zoom’s video conferencing capability.
Cloudbreak’s 1,200-plus customers, which include clinics, hospitals, and healthcare systems, are eligible to download this feature and have already begun using it in patient interactions. Cloudbreak’s interoperability features allow it to natively integrate with multiple WebRTC and SIP platforms including Vidyo, Polycom, Skype, Cisco and now Zoom. These integrations also can be used in many of the major electronic medical records used by hospitals including Cerner, EPIC and others.
