LONDON, March 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolving patients' needs, limited number of medical specialists in remote areas, and technological advances are some of the most important factors driving interest in visual collaboration in healthcare. Patients become keener to have faster access to professional advice and strive to achieve the same convenience in healthcare they benefit from in other service industries. From clinical practice of psychiatry, radiology, or cardiology among others, to education at teaching hospitals, and research, visual collaboration is making its way into healthcare services.


These market developments will be discussed during Frost Sullivan's next quarterly Analyst Briefing on the visual collaboration in healthcare industry on Thursday, 1 April 2010, at 14.00 BST. The presentation will include analyses of major market trends in visual collaboration in healthcare, challenges, drivers and restraints that influence the market, and also short description of how visual collaboration is being used in healthcare.

The healthcare industry around the world has to deal with increasing challenges, like the aging population, shortage of healthcare providers in remote areas or limited financial resources. To address those obstacles, visual collaboration vendors are introducing new solutions that will enable quick and easy access to healthcare services. To achieve a widespread adoption of visual collaboration in healthcare, the market has to demonstrate economic practicality, effectiveness, and acceptability of the solutions, says Iwona Petruczynik, Research Analyst for Enterprise Communication and Collaboration group at global consulting company Frost Sullivan.

This briefing will be of interest to visual collaboration vendors, medical staff in hospitals, primary care physicians and specialists, by presenting emerging trends and application of visual collaboration in providing healthcare services.
