Q&A: a ‘Zoom for medics’ with Visionable

Dubbed ‘Zoom for medics’, UK-based Visionable is a video collaboration platform designed for hospital teams. Abi Millar talks to CEO and co-founder Alan Lowe about why this technology has been a useful tool to drive efficiency, and what the future holds for the company in a post-Covid-19 world.

Founded in 2015, UK-based Visionable provides video-based tools for hospital teams and patients and can be adapted to numerous clinical needs. Over the long term, it could be used to digitise the patient pathway, meaning patients could see a relevant specialist virtually and expeditiously, wherever they happened to be based.

To date, the platform has been used in the UK’s NHS for improved stroke care, as well as connecting hard-to-reach populations and teams in South Devon. The company also onboarded thousands of NHS staff at the peak of the Covid-19 crisis, at a time when face-to-face appointments were often deemed too risky.

Already supported by the UK’s Wealth Club, the company is now looking towards a £100m fundraise to support its growth internationally. CEO and co-founder of Visionable Alan Lowe explains why pivoting to digital is about more than just video calls.
