Art Clinic

Art Clinic, one of Sweden’s leading specialists clinics, invests in new video technology in order to securely communicate with patients over large distances. This facilitates for patients all over the country to receive an increased availability, especially in the North of Sweden where distances are long.
The patient is offered the possibility to meet with the physician via the Internet using a technology that ensures both high security and good quality. The physician can be at their surgery and the patient can be at home using their smart phone, tablet or computer.
-We open up the possibility for patients to meet specialist doctors even if they live far away, says Ronnie Pettersson, CEO at Art Clinic.
In some cases the patient can take pictures of themselves that can be useful for evaluation during the examination. This means that the patient can be spared a long journey.
For Art Clinic the technology also means that they can reach more patients in a cost efficient manner for expansion all over the country.
The conditions for Art Clinic to use the technology are that it ensures security and integrity as well as high quality video and audio.
The security is high; no-one can hack their way in. And the video quality is high as well, says Ronnie Pettersson.
The video image must be clear enough and the audio well-synchronized to emulate that they are in the same physical room.
Art Clinic subscribes to a virtual meeting service that does not require any specialized hardware. Existing computers, tablets or smartphones can be used, both by the physician and the patient. A software and login credentials are included in the service, supplier of the service is Compodium.

Compodium International AB offers cloud based services for digital meetings, telemedicine, e-health and live events, for instance video broadcasts of surgical procedures. Among their customers we can mention Inera AB, Karolinska University Hospital, Uppsala University Hospital, TDC and the Church of Sweden.

Telemedical consultation during SADE2016

The interview above was made in Swedish (with English subtitles).

Compodium was responsible for high resolution video conferencing links that were broadcasted live between the seminal hall at hotel Scandic InfraCity in Stockholm and operating rooms both in Gävle and at Karolinska Huddinge hospital during the 33rd SADE course in advanced endoscopy.
Moderator and speaking specialist was chief physician Urban Arnelo who normally works at Huddinge Hospital. Through live links Dr Arnelo could remotely supervise the operating physicians and together with the gathered expertise in the conference venue discuss the ongoing procedures. During the two day conference they alternated between onsite lectures and live video sessions from these operating rooms where a series of procedures in the gall-ducts and pancreas were performed.
The method and the procedures that were shown on the large screen for the gathered audience is called Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). It means that one guides a flexible camera endoscope down via the stomach and into the duodenum on the sedated patient. This can for instance be used for gall stone treatment and to diagnose different types of cancer.
SADE stands for “Scandinavian Association for Digestive Endoscopy” and gathers physicians, nurses, endoscopy assistants and other forms of medical staff to annual conferences and courses in order to exchange experience and teaching. The hostesship is circulated between Denmark, Norway and Sweden and this years meeting was held in Stockholm and gathered over 200 participants.
The ERCP equipment was supplied by Olympus, one of Compodiums partners within medical technology. Compodium used broadcasting equipment from Cisco and Vidyo and all simultaneous connections were made via Compodiums cloud based video services platform.
