Video conferencing for Multidisciplinary Team meetings

Matt HoltonHealthcare

Organising a multidisciplinary team meeting (MDT) and bringing senior staff together can be challenging, particularly within a busy industry such as healthcare. However, these meetings are crucial as they can be used to make decisions regarding the treatment of individual patients based on reviews of clinical documentation such as case notes, test results, diagnostics imaging etc.

By utilising video conferencing the relevant people only need an email address and a device with a camera to dial into a meeting. They’re able to do this from wherever they are, on all major devices (phone, tablet, laptop, PC, mac). Helping to reduce or eradicate travel times and save money. Attendees can dial in from their office, their home or on the move, wherever suits them.

With decrease in time commitment to attend MDTs, healthcare professionals may find that they’re able to hold them more frequently and cover more cases, as they no longer have to spend hours travelling to each one. Equally, if someone with the specialist knowledge required is based in a foreign country, it is still simple to get them involved in the MDT. 

Video conferencing has the ability to share your screen, documents and present to each other during the call, allowing you to hold your meetings, discuss treatments plans and case notes, share knowledge etc. as easily as you could in person.
