Avaya has partnered with a Ukraine-based nonprofit organization to provide video conferencing tools for a national telemedicine program that seeks to improve cancer treatment in the European nation.
The Rinat Akhmetov Foundation for the Development of Ukraine selected Avaya’s Scopia video conferencing system to help train and assist oncologists during medical procedures, Avaya said Monday.
Alexander Parkhomenko, Avaya vice president for Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, said the company aims to deploy the platform in 15 hospitals across Ukraine by the end of this year.
Scopia XT5000 is designed with a camera for cancer specialists to witness live surgeries remotely from any location, according to the company.
The firm’s XT500 technology contains a multipoint control unit that works to deliver high-definition video connections among several different facilities.
Avaya says regional clinics across Ukraine performs more than 12 surgeries per day using its technology.
