Lexington, MA – May 3, 2017 —swyMed, a provider of exceptional-quality video telemedicine solutions, today announced the issuance by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) of a patent that covers the company’s proprietary data transport protocol. U.S. Patent No. 9,641,559 entitled “Methods and Systems for Dynamic Adjustment of Session Parameters for Effective Video Collaboration Among Heterogeneous Devices” solidifies swyMed’s leadership position in developing proven and reliable solutions that allow for real-time video telemedicine — anytime, anywhere.
A very challenging barrier within the telemedicine market today is the bandwidth to reliably conduct video encounters for real-time telemedicine outside the four walls of a hospital or clinic. Leveraging its unique technology, swyMed’s patented proprietary data transport protocol overcomes traditional connectivity issues such as latency or packet loss, to deliver real-time video telemedicine encounters in even the most difficult environments.
“Day in and day out swyMed works to offer our clients a Mobile Integrated Healthcare solution that enables them to reach places and patients where it was never before possible,” said Stefano Migliorisi, CEO of swyMed. “This recently granted patent further validates the advancements of our telemedicine technology powering exceptional-quality live video encounters, even at the lowest bandwidths.”
Migliorisi continued, “Our ‘special sauce’ has always been the ability to transport, manage and present a high quality, secure data stream. This patent acknowledges our technical leadership in not only delivering the data, but monitoring the quality of the user experience and dynamically adjusting so that we ensure that a user has the best possible experience for any given set of conditions (network connectivity, available hardware, etc.).”
Most recently, the company launched its DOT Telemedicine Backpack, powered by swyMed’s patented software offering. It is the first lightweight, mobile telemedicine solution that enables field care providers to conduct high quality, reliable, real-time video consults with physicians to treat patients even in the most remote areas or on the go. The DOT Telemedicine Backpack changes the outcomes and economics of healthcare by allowing providers to assess/monitor patients in an ambulance, facilitate paramedicine programs, and prevent expensive and unnecessary emergency transports.
