London, United Kingdom – May 31, 2012: BCS Global Networks Limited (Now Pinnaca), a leading worldwide provider of managed videoconferencing, telepresence, and visual collaboration services, announced today that it has partnered with Telemed Ventures, LLC to deliver an innovative managed visual collaboration solution to Walmart’s Retail Medical Clinics, operated by Telemed Ventures LLC under the retail brand Smart Care Doc™.
BCS Global’s managed visual collaboration solution enables remote video consultations between a patient and doctor through a life-like, virtual face-to-face video interface, over a secure video network.
The service enables Telemed to provide a reliable and secure visual collaboration platform for patients, nurses, doctors and healthcare providers. Users of the service have the ability to conduct telepresence-quality face-to-face interactions over the internet using existing laptops, smartphones or tablets - making it a very affordable solution for patients, doctors and healthcare providers.
Patients receive all the benefits of a traditional doctor’s visit that they have come to expect: the ability to see a doctor instead of a less experienced practitioner, engaging the doctor in a face-to-face dialogue about medical issues, predictable/transparent pricing options, and the accurate acquisition of vitals and health information.
