“What we do is to set up a disaster relief service that the authorities will then refer to for different meetings. We have done similar things in Sweden earlier with, among other things, the Armed Forces who can work together to quickly rescue and assess the extent of injuries. In Texas, we have received a request from the hospitals.” says Jon Strindlund, Head of International Markets at Compodium.

Compodium has had a subsidiary in the United States since 2013. One of the US subsidiary’s customers is the Texas-based company Vesalius Ventures with interests in online care. The request came from the Vesalius team Andrew Nerlinger, Lori and David Balch who are now coordinating disaster relief, David and Lori are pioneers in Telemedicine and have extensive experience in “Disaster Medicine” and coordinating disaster relief. They are now engaged in the work to quickly build resources to help with the work to support care in the disaster-stricken Texas. As they already use Compodium’s services, they now want to enable additional resources to coordinate different relief efforts.

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.

Video on SJUNET get support for Lync

Compodium has been awarded a contract to expand the current “National Multiparty” service to include seamless connectivity between traditional video conferencing services and Lync.

Compodium operates since many years national video services on SJUNET, the internal IT infrastructure used by Swedish healthcare providers. The use of video in the care is increasing rapidly every year and a number of county councils are now introducing Microsoft Lync (Skype for Business) for administrative videoconferencing between employees. However, the video technology behind Lync is not compatible with existing video conferencing systems being used for video meetings and telemedicine. As a result Compodium has upgraded the “National Multiparty” service for efficient interconnectivity between relevant video systems. The solution is since the middle of June in service and available for all SJUNET users.

The contract was awarded to Compodium by Inera AB, a company jointly owned by all the county councils and regions in Sweden. Inera is currently responsible for some 50 national projects and services within national health care and is providing support to all county councils and regions in their ambition to integrate defined services into the regular operations.
