St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center Signs Agreement for Innovative Video Conferencing Use
Date:5/12/2009

PHOENIX, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix, today announced the signing of a formal agreement with Clinical Information Network, Inc. for the deployment of the company's state-of-the-art videoconferencing system, Clinical InfoNET. The system will be used to connect specialist physicians at the hospital to referring physicians within the community. This program will include the Barrow Neurological Institute, as well as other key service lines at the hospital.

The hospital selected Clinical InfoNET to increase direct face-to-face communications between the consulting physician specialists at the hospital and physicians in the surrounding community who refer their patients to St. Joseph's.

"We see this as an opportunity to provide even better patient care, since the referring physician will have more direct access to our hospital's world-class specialist physicians," said Suzanne Pfister, vice president of external affairs at St. Joseph's. "Our anticipation is that this program might ultimately expand throughout the state and beyond."

Clinical InfoNET will also provide the hospital with an extremely convenient and effective communication medium to deliver educational programs, including Continuing Medical Education (CME), and it will provide physicians in the community with information about techniques and procedural advances offered by the hospital.

Clinical InfoNET is owned by Scottsdale-based Clinical Information Network, Inc., whose Chairman and CEO, Peter Moriarty, commented, "Clinical InfoNET enables physicians to conduct high-quality onscreen, face-to-face meetings, either on a one-on-one basis or with multiple persons onscreen in different geographic locations. This is a highly secure, HIPAA-compliant environment, where physicians can see and speak with each other while concurrently viewing visual images, and even collaborate on case report forms. It can provide a physician with access to multiple sources of clinical information, including direct access to pharmaceutical companies, if the physician so wishes."
