TokBox Demonstrates Power of Live Video for Healthcare at Health 2.0 Europe 2015

WebRTC Platform Leader to Showcase Live Video Advances at Health Technology Event

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - TokBox, a Telefónica company, today announced it will be demonstrating its leading WebRTC platform at the Health 2.0 Europe Conference 2015 in Barcelona, highlighting innovative companies embedding real time communications into web and mobile healthcare applications. The conference is the premier showcase and catalyst for the advancement of new health technologies.

TokBox develops and operates the OpenTok Platform, a global cloud platform for embedding real-time video, voice, messaging and collaboration experiences into websites, applications and services. The scalable, customizable platform gives users the creative freedom to develop any video interaction, from one-to-one chats to large-scale broadcasts.

TokBox's OpenTok platform is powering a growing number of healthcare applications, particularly in telehealth, where companies are leveraging WebRTC to embed real time communications into web and mobile-based solutions to offer services such as virtual consultations, video diagnostics, home-based care and monitoring, and personal emergency response systems. Driven by technology platforms such as OpenTok, the telehealth industry is undergoing rapid growth with revenues in the US expected to increase by roughly 45% this year, hitting $585 million by year-end, according to IBIS Market Research.

At Health 2.0 Europe 2015, TokBox will present telehealth applications powered by the OpenTok platform including Calgary Scientific's Resolution MD® -- a diagnostic and medical imaging collaboration software; and Dr Now® -- a health service that delivers medicines and prescriptions to a patient's home or office directly from a remote, mobile-based consultation.

TokBox CEO, Scott Lomond said: "Whether it is on-demand health advice, video diagnostics or real-time collaboration, WebRTC is transforming healthcare and freeing up doctors rooms and emergency wards. We're proud to showcase some truly remarkable applications of real time communications in healthcare that TokBox is enabling, and look forward to being part of an event that inspires innovation in this industry."
