Wisconsin clinic creates over 1,200 videos for
its online portal
MADISON, Wis. — March 09, 2016 — Sonic
Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted global leader for video creation and management solutions, today
announced that Marshfield Clinic has recorded more than 1,200 educational and
training videos with Mediasite
for practicing and retired physicians, staff and allied health providers.
Wis.-based clinic’s videos have been viewed 60,000 times via a secure internal
online video portal, including:
rounds: Physicians conduct weekly grand rounds videos that are webcast live to
all staff and are also available on-demand. The Grand Rounds program provides
opportunities for physicians to share successes and challenges, highlight
important research and answer questions from colleagues and staff.
development: Physicians and visiting professors give lectures
to keep clinic physicians and staff up-to-date on the latest medical news.
Those presentations, as well as PowerPoint slides and any supporting materials,
are captured, shared and available for review on-demand.
training: Hundreds of staff members attend Marshfield Clinic managers meetings
but space is limited in the auditorium. Some managers attend in person while
others watch live via Mediasite. Viewership is tracked with Mediasite’s
medical education: Some Mediasite videos are open
to the public since retired physicians want continuing medical education
credits to keep licenses current.
brutally easy for the audience and for those of us who do the behind-the-scenes
editing and cataloguing. And the videos look good. It’s the best quality
available,” said Richard Kenitzer, Televideo team lead at Marshfield Clinic. “Before
Mediasite we took a lot of time to do this kind of recording. Now it’s recorded
and instantly shared. Mediasite has certainly been a time and cost saver. Having
the ability to record once and share many times saves people from doing
presentations over and over again.”
“Hundreds of medical
organizations like Marshfield Clinic rely on Mediasite to be at the heart of
their education and training initiatives because it enables them to deliver
highly technical information easily,” said Gary Weis, CEO of Sonic Foundry.
“Video adds an important dimension when dealing with complex information and
sophisticated training, and allows for better information retention and
performance. It’s inspiring to work with Marshfield Clinic to keep its staff up
to date in this ever-changing medical world.”
