— ABOUT —
Patients in University Hospital Galway’s ICU are using specially adapted video conferencing technology, known as ICU FamilyLink, to communicate with family and clinical teams due to visiting restrictions brought about by Covid-19. The technology and equipment was donated by Cisco in Oranmore and a team of IBM volunteers are on call to provide technical support to families using the service.
Through collaboration between IBM, Cisco and NUI Galway, a secure system, designed for easy setup by non-technical people was developed based on Cisco WebEx. close family members are invited by the hospital staff looking after the patient, to see and speak to their loved ones and also allows clinicians and nurses to discuss treatment and medical issues with family members.
