Cisco Case Study: Lee Memorial Health System

Lee Memorial Health System

Saving Critical Minutes with Mobile Video

Company: Lee Memorial Health System

Industry: Healthcare

Location: North Fort Myers, Florida

Company Size: More than 11,000 employees


Challenge

Lee Memorial Health System wanted to expand stroke care services in the emergency departments of its four acute care hospitals. To accelerate its ability to diagnose stroke patients, it needed to:

  • Connect the right physicians to geographically dispersed patients
  • Provide physician experts with quick remote access to medical records and images

Solution

Outcomes

Lee Memorial now has mobile video consultation, saving critical minutes for stroke patients. Physicians now have fast, reliable, and secure access to patient information anytime from anywhere, reducing time to diagnose by 10 to 45 minutes.

Physicians at home can see the video and the CT scan that was taken 2 minutes ago. That can make the difference.
