Westell's ConferencePlus(R) Collaborates With GE Healthcare to Educate Physicians on Vscan(TM) Through a Series of Webcasts(June 17, 2011)
SCHAUMBURG, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 06/17/11 -- Conference Plus, Inc. (ConferencePlus®), a subsidiary of Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), and a leading provider of global conferencing solutions, today announced a collaboration with GE Healthcare to educate physicians on the benefits of Vscan, through a series of webcasts. ConferencePlus will be responsible for facilitation and management of these live events.
Vscan, a GE healthymagination-validated product, is a pocket-size visualization tool providing black and white anatomic and color-coded blood flow images in real-time. This advanced ultrasound technology generates high-quality images in real-time and helps to enable personalized use at the point of care. Vscan eventually could become as indispensable as the traditional physician's stethoscope in patient physical exams, as it can enhance a doctor's ability to quickly and accurately confirm a diagnosis and validate referrals.
ConferencePlus managed the first live webcast on June 10, 2011, targeted to physicians, office managers and healthcare professionals around the world. This webcast was the first in what will be an ongoing series of webcasts focused on educating this audience on the clinical and economic benefits of using this new tool.
"Due to the importance of this program, we decided to collaborate with a trusted healthcare conferencing partner ConferencePlus," said Lynn Bender, Global Education Strategy Manager, Primary Care Ultrasound at GE Healthcare. "We have confidence that the ConferencePlus Healthcare Services team will provide us with the highest level of support while we educate our global audience through an effective, efficient and accessible channel," Ms. Bender added.
"GE Healthcare has been a long time customer of ours and we are very excited to work with them on this unique series of webcasts," said Dan Papa, Senior Vice President, Global Sales for ConferencePlus. "Our relationship has grown over the past six years and it's a tremendous privilege to assist them with their Vscan initiatives as this tool has the potential to redefine the way physicians examine patients," said Mr. Papa.
