Why A Neutral Telehealth Platform Is Essential To Any Telehealth Strategy
Around the world, Switzerland is known as a neutral country; one that everyone trusts and gets along with. This concept of neutrality also applies to telehealth. When deploying enhanced telehealth, healthcare providers have two different options. The first is to pick a platform that is directly tied to a specific diagnostic device. The other is to pick a platform that is neutral and integrates technologies from different device vendors.
Telehealth platforms that develop their own devices often aren't neutral because they don't leverage the best innovations from other device vendors. How will your organization utilize the best and most affordable new technologies if your telehealth platform vendor is pushing their own devices? In contrast, partnering with companies that provide neutral platforms (such as GALE) lets you benefit from the best diagnostic devices as they emerge. This gives you options to find devices that match your price point, market need, and geography.
Below are some cutting-edge examples that show why having a neutral platform is essential:
1. Remote Exam Cameras
Exam cameras are the perfect example of a neutral platform's advantage. There are different cameras for different use cases at different price points, and the only way to leverage these innovations is through a neutral platform that doesn't seek to develop its own exam camera.

2. Portable Ultrasound & 12-Lead ECG
There are multiple vendors for ultrasound and ECG. Some of the latest innovations coming from companies like EchoNous and QT Medical enable you to offer smart, effective ultrasound and 12-Lead ECG at point-of-care that anyone can operate. Click here to see a video of this device working with GALE.

3. AI and Machine Learning
Neutrality is even more important when it comes to AI. There are hundreds of different vendors developing different types and variants of smart intake, image recognition, and machine learning-based big data signal processing. Making a bet on one vendor is close to impossible. The only viable solution is a neutral platform that lets you easily leverage multiple AI and machine learning solutions for various applications.
