Video collaboration vendor Vidyo aims to make it easier for health care providers and organizations to use telepresence technology in their day-to-day work.

Vidyo is rolling out VidyoHealth, a telemedicine video conferencing product that enables health care providers to user the Internet and other general-purpose IP networks to communicate with other doctors and with patients.

The VidyoHealth offering, introduced May 12, removes the need for a more traditional dedicated telehealth network infrastructure, which will help reduce costs and expand access to remote facilities and patients. That in turn will help doctors and patients realize the potential of telehealth, according to Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo CEO and co-founder.
