Videoconferencing Technologies

Where videoconferencing technologies can be used

The Stan Cassidy Centre is equipped with videoconferencing equipment in therapy rooms, in meeting rooms and in offices.  It can connect with other videoconferencing equipment in other hospitals and schools in New Brunswick (or almost anywhere in the world).

We are currently experimenting with secure videoconferences between SCCR and patient's homes using high speed Internet. We also have videophones available.

Why videoconferencing technologies are used

Web ConferencingVideoconferencing is used for a variety of purposes such as

  • assess patients
  • follow-up on patients progress and make recommendations,
  • discuss care plans with the patient's local team
  • provide education to patients, families, support providers and/or clinicians,
  • conduct  meetings,
  • supervise students

Our IP videoconferencing equipment also allows our staff to receive education from Centers of expertise in other provinces or countries.

Although videoconferencing cannot replace all face-to-face sessions, it saves participants from travelling so it saves time, energy and money.
