The 2019 Microsoft Ignite conference that was held on November 4th-8th this year was filled with exciting Teams product announcements! We want to highlight a few features that have been widely requested by our healthcare customers:
1. Virtual Consults
Now in private preview, Healthcare providers can simply schedule and conduct virtual consultations with patients through Teams. Patients can access the consult directly through the Teams mobile app or the web browser. This saves time and hassle for the patient and the provider, allowing them to focus on effective and quality care.
2. Patient Coordination
Available in public preview soon, complex care teams can now centralize actionable patient data and access it quickly to collaborate in the context they need. Whether it be rounding, team meetings or discharge huddles, Patient Coordination in Teams supports enterprise-grade security and enables HIPAA compliance.
...And much much more!
These are just a few of the many Teams updates that were announced at Ignite. Check out What's New in Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Ignite 2019 for more. Thanks for reading and enjoy the new updates!
