MT. PROSPECT, Ill., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicago data center service provider, CoreLink Data Centers, LLC (www.corelink.com/data-center-services.htm), today announced an agreement to support Santa Barbara, Calif.-based InTouch Health's cloud-based network infrastructure, which enables physicians to remotely consult with patients across the continuum of homes, clinics, ambulances, procedure rooms, ICUs and patient wards.
Through a single portal, InTouch Health's Remote Presence robotic system, powered through the company's SureConnect® cloud-based infrastructure, delivers reliable imaging and documentation, extending a physician's ability to provide care where time and distance prevent face-to-face interaction.
Physicians at more than 400 hospitals on six continents leverage the telemedicine system to provide critical diagnostic and treatment services to stroke, cardiology, trauma, psychiatric and pediatric patients. In addition to enabling physicians to see patients, InTouch's Remote Presence automatically translates languages and includes clinical education and surgical/procedure mentoring capabilities.
InTouch Health has enlisted CoreLink to provide relentless infrastructure support and continuous network operation under the data center service provider's 100 percent Uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA) covering all infrastructure elements and service metrics delivered from data centers in Chicago, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Seattle and Las Vegas. This is especially vital consideration for InTouch Health as its telemedicine technology plays a major role in patient outcomes.
"Our team's strength lies in the ongoing development of new, and the improvement of the existing robotics, telemedicine and telecommunications technologies that form the backbone of Remote Presence solutions," said Yulun Wang, Ph.D., InTouch Health Chairman and CEO. "CoreLink's HIPAA security compliance, guaranteed network operations, and infrastructure-support services all combine to free our team to focus on what they do best.
"Physicians' and hospital administrators' ability to fully leverage Remote Presence depends on the cloud-based infrastructure's uninterrupted operation," Dr. Wang added. "CoreLink's relentless service levels ensure physicians can remotely assess and provide diagnoses and treatments at all times, including when response time is a matter of life and death."
InTouch Health's growth, fueled largely by its ability to cost-effectively provide patients anywhere with immediate access to high quality care, recently resulted in the company's No. 866 ranking in Inc. magazine's annual 500|5000 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The company's performance reflects the growing demand, on the cusp of industry reform, for increased access to healthcare for patients across the continuum of care.
"Our company's delivery of transparent and secure 24/7 network support and immediate backup connectivity guarantees that physicians using InTouch Health's Remote Presence solution can always depend on it, just as their patients depend on them for critical healthcare services," said Nav Ranajee, director of CoreLink's Healthcare Vertical. "In addition, we deliver multiple levels of physical and network security which assists our numerous healthcare clients in meeting their HIPAA security compliance requirements."
