After searching for a technology upgrade solution to relaunch their tele-ultrasound program, the radiology team at CIUSSS de l’Est-de-l’Île-de-Montréal heard about the Reacts platform and its ability to simultaneously and securely transmit multiple video streams in addition to affordably providing a series of interactive collaboration tools that are accessible using existing equipment (computers, standard Internet connection, web cams, etc.). Because Reacts is certified by the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux and supported by the Canadian Medical Association, the platform met the project’s security requirements.
The Reacts solution allowed a significant reduction of costs and led to a wider-scale rollout of the tele-ultrasound service that was quick and easy. The platform also facilitated optimizing mobility by allowing radiologists to conduct Reacts tele-ultrasound sessions from their personal computers, tablets or mobile devices. After a few trial sessions, the team at CIUSSS de l’Est-de-l’Île-de-Montréal decided to proceed with implementation of the Reacts solution for their tele-ultrasound needs.
