E-Health / Teletherapy

Typically, the term ‚e-health‘ covers medical services and further tasks in the health sector with the help of electronic devices. Mostly, for the sake of saving expenses, personnel and expenditure of time stakeholders are connected: patients and physicians for diagnoses or therapies, medical experts for talks and conferences, or physicians and administration for meetings and to exchange data. While the two latter cases rather refer to the field of web conferencing, the communication between patients and physicians is a special case. Doctor and patient benefit not only from the mentioned savings but also new effective concepts for therapy become possible and the sphere of influence for therapeutical offers is increased. A multi-awarded winning example is the cooperation between vitero, PARLO Institut and Kasseler Stottertherapie.

Example Kasseler Stottertherapie

Worldwide there are about 60 million people who stutter. That equals about one per cent of the world’s total population. Therapy such as provided by Kasseler Stottertherapie can help these people. It consists of two parts: first, an intensive course that lasts for several weeks and then periodical units en bloc who function as a refresher. Without regular practice and qualified aftercare during these periodical units the result is a high rate of relapses – the hard-earned success is reduced to nothing. For a long time the question of how to improve the aftercare phase caused quite a headache. Increasing the frequency of the periodical units in their conventional form would have resulted in an increase in expenses and expenditure of time.

Virtualise and offer therapies worldwide

At first, PARLO Institut approached us, vitero, as German provider for web conferencing, in order to virtualize the periodical units. To this day, vitero offers the perfect platform for this application, both in technical and in conceptional respect. The therapist can communicate via VoIP with his patients. He can also do several speech exercises, and analyze and correct their speaking behavior, thanks to the implementation of special therapy software. vitero’s ergonomic graphic user interface is ideal for single and group therapy. The therapeutical and economical profitability of this virtual approach could also be proven during the pilot phase. Encouraged by this great popularity, today not only the periodical units but the entire therapy at Kasseler Stottertherapie is offered online. At the same time, the sphere of activity could be increased and new markets opened up. Today, people from all over the world can benefit from this therapy. There have already been six new jobs as therapists created and more than 1.000 therapy sessions have taken place.

Observation of confidentiality

What is obligatory for companies concerning the adherence of the Federal Data Protection Act applies all the more to information a patient shares with his physician. That is the reason why the communication is encrypted and transmitted according to online banking standards. For our cloud services TÜV-certified servers located in Germany guarantee the adherence of the Federal Data Protection Act. In addition, it is also possible that the customers host vitero on their own servers. Upon customer’s request the security and data protection architecture can be further refined and adjusted to fit your scenario.
