Advances in technology have improved healthcare providers' ability to rapidly diagnose patients at the point of care, screen for common conditions, and provide a variety of effective treatment options. Providers need to be aware of what innovations are available - or will become available in the near future. It is the purpose of Medgizmos to educate and inform healthcare providers regarding the latest and greatest technologies.

Webaround Green Screen

I’ve been doing Telehealth visits for many years, mostly for following patients who I treat for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and/or anxiety or depression.  The quality of the visit on several factors, including bandwidth, quality of microphone and webcam at both ends of the virtual visit.  As a pediatrician, particularly for my younger patients, I find I can improve patient and parent engagement by using backgrounds with my zoom calls. This can be videos showing me on a warm beach with the waves rolling in, or backgrounds with patient pleasing designs and colors.  While Zoom virtual visits can be used without a “green screen”, background images or videos can be distorted unless you use one.  

A very affordable and versatile 56-inch circular green screen is the Webaround which can be purchased on Amazon.com, for $50 or less.  As described in the video the Webaround is attached to a chair with Velcro straps and positioned appropriately in the room used for virtual visits.  In my experience it is a complicated process to re-fold the Webaround so it can be placed back in its transport bag, so I just leave it attached to a chair in a room in my office I use for Telehealth visits.

Please let me know if you have any advice that improves the quality of the virtual visits you conduct with patients.
