Librestream, the leader in Mobile Collaboration solutions, is pleased to announce that Onsight was selected as an approved general exam camera as part of the National Telehealth Videoconference Equipment RFP issued jointly by nine Canadian jurisdictions. The procurement process was funded by Canada Health Infoway.

“Canada Health Infoway plays a critical development and leadership role within various telehealth initiatives across the country. This is an example of Canadian jurisdictions working together to find the best of breed solutions,” explains Mark Ahrens-Townsend, EVP Business Development, Librestream.

Librestream now has a National Equipment Supply Contract (NESC) in place with Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario, Newfoundland, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Yukon. The NESC simplifies the procurement process for telehealth networks and healthcare professionals who require the Onsight mobile collaboration system within these jurisdictions.

Mr. Ahrens-Townsend continues, “We are very pleased to be involved in telehealth initiatives across multiple jurisdictions that are improving patient access to care, especially in remote regions. Our Onsight system is already in use as a general examination/patient camera as well as a mobile solution to connect patients at their bedsides to specialists in their office.”
