In two enterprise locations in Austin and in San Diego, VidiMedix designs advanced desktop telemedicine systems, allowing to bridge time and distance to bring high quality medical care and information at the patient's doorstep. The company recently has formed a strategic alliance with Data General Corporation, a renowned supplier of high-end NT, CLARiiON Fibre Channel storage systems, Unix AViiON servers, as well as related software and services. The synergy with this company, headquartered in Westboro, will optimize the VidiMedix telemedicine approach with Intel-based servers and will provide an excellent opportunity for joint marketing efforts.
Both companies will strongly co-operate to promote the newest product in the desktop telemedicine family, which integrates Data General's advanced server technology know how. The VidiMedix Series 2000 Medical System thus offers telemedicine support in a way to meet the most severe user requirements with regard to high performance capacities, scalability potential, largest availability needs, and perfect connectivity. It is for this purpose that the two partners will develop extensive promotion and sales programmes in order to make the customer familiar with this type of health care delivery.
Data General brings in a vast experience of more than 25 years with health care industry services and solutions. The combination of AViiON servers with VidiMedix software will allow health care providers to access real time information at affordable prices from no matter which geographic location. As a result, patients will enjoy the best quality of care, exactly corresponding to their needs. For VidiMedix, the collaboration with Data General forms a logical continuation in a range of strategic alliances towards a better service for the customer.
In this regard, VidiMedix has signed additional agreements during the past months, in order to partner with GTE Corporation and American Medical Development in team projects for marketing purposes as well as products integration. Last August, the desktop telemedicine systems developer has also been selected to participate in the Microsoft Certified Solution Provider (MCSP) Programme. This initiative specifically has been set up to pave the way for smooth integration of leading-edge Microsoft technology into user-friendly solutions for the customer.
