South Korea-based Insung Information, a healthcare solutions firm, has chosen Vonage (Nasdaq: VG), a global business cloud communications leader, to bring telehealth services to patients, medical professionals, and healthcare facilities in South Korea, the company said.
Vonage´s APIs allow developers to easily build innovative communication experiences – from SMS to voice to video and beyond – directly into their existing applications and devices. Embedding the Vonage Video APIs within Insung´s telehealth devices – HiCare Hub, HiCare M and HiCare Home Doctor – equips doctors to teleconsult with patients through a browser or application on a PC, laptop, or mobile device.
COVID-19 has revealed the need for flexible, secure, and easy-to-use video communications solutions in the healthcare space. Vonage reported a surge in video usage, with video traffic for telehealth services in March 2020 rising by 727% when compared to February 2020.
Insung has provided its customers with the best IT solutions and services since 1992. One of its major business areas is Smart Healthcare, which includes telehealth solutions and devices, serving South Korea and international markets. To help overcome the COVID-19 crisis, Insung is donating its telehealth solutions and equipment to local governments and a number of sanatoriums in Daegu.
