Earlier today, ReelDx, a leading secure video management company, announced the launch of the medvid.io platform, HIPAA-compliant video management APIs that can be added to any existing healthcare software.

"Stored video is a powerful tool for improving provider-patient communication and health outcomes," said Dr. David Spiro, Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of ReelDx. "Allowing the patient or doctor to capture video and share it securely with family, caregiver network, or others is an amazing breakthrough."

With video telemedicine gaining popularity, the potential of stored video telemedicine is tremendous--studies have shown that the vast majority of patients find it helpful to review clinical visits on a recorded video.  Given this statistic, over 100 independent healthcare software developers have reigstered for the medvid.io beta test, currently underway.  Many of these companies decided to partner with ReelDx becasue of the security and stability of their video platform.

"Working in remote areas and with sensitive data, we wanted to make sure our system was reliable," Dr. Erica Frank, founder and President of NextGenU, a company that provides live mentorship and  free accredited medical education, said. "medvid.io makes it easy and safe to capture patient-provider encounters and present them as powerful case studies." 

medvid.io allows users to upload, encode, transcode, play and stream video content directly into the host software.  It integrates seamlessly into medical workflows and the HIPAA-compliant APIs is available free to any developer.
