I am trying to solve my current mystery of integrating a reliable and low cost telehealth with openEMR.
I have created a video app in Vonage’s cloud sandbox. It works great in my charting system. The cost ($0.04/connection/min) is hard to justify for small scale (50 providers at 25 hours/week.). Vonage is clearly looking for large physician hospital networks (1000 providers) before giving a price break ($0.002/connection/minute last time I checked).
Windows allow openTok client to client connection without a server between both clients.
OpenTok has limitations when using iOS. You can’t use Opentok on a client to client basis reliably. The patient has to download a client app to work reliably on iOS machines.
We stood up Jitsi and it works well enough but requires some customization. Their download version has no privacy. Perhaps there is an open source version for EMRs that I have not found yet.
What are people in the openEMR community using? I would prefer to adopt something that others are using and contribute to that evolving solution rather than invent my own app openEMR.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions and will gladly contribute to supporting a solution that works well with openEMR. I don’t want to record sessions.
I am using v600
