Fighting Swine Flu with Polycom

polycom As the world braces for the coming winter flu season, health officials in Mexico expect to battle an anticipated rise in H1N1 flu cases with interactive visual communication systems from Polycom, (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in telepresence, video and voice communication solutions.

During April and May, Mexico’s National Center for Health Technology Excellence (CENETEC) relied on Polycom and other video conferencing systems to help them stem the initial outbreak of H1N1. Experts at Mexico’s Secretariat of Health used Polycom systems to communicate face-to-face with some 1,500 health officials to help determine the source of the flu, where and how it was spreading, and effective treatments.

When the virus emerged in April, Mexican officials immediately recognized the need for clear, streamlined communication and collaboration to help contain the outbreak. So they turned to their video communication network outfitted with Polycom systems.

“Real-time communication and interaction was essential in responding to H1N1, and that made video a crucial element in our approach to managing the crisis,” said Adrian Pacheco, biomedical engineer and assistant director of telemedicine for Mexico’s Secretariat of Health. “Interactive video enables timely information to be distributed to the right people, because when you’re fighting an epidemic, there’s no time to lose.”

In the race to contain the virus, interactive visual communication saved time
