Walgreens' Take Care Health Systems recently created a relationship with Cisco to run the operations at the LifeConnections Health Center on Cisco’s campus in San Jose, California, which would give Cisco employees services such as primary care, physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, vision, health coaching and an on-site Walgreens pharmacy.The recent agreement between Cisco and Walgreens will allow Cisco employees at the company's campus in Durham, North Carolina, to receive acute care services from the San Jose-based health center. Using Cisco HealthPresence Technology, the roughly 3,600 Cisco employees in Durham will be able to interact with clinicians using high-definition video, advanced audio and medical devices. "We are taking a holistic view of health and wellness and providing employees with the ability to easily and safely connect with doctors and clinicians across great distance," said Nirmal Patel, director of corporate medical programs at Cisco. "By combining Cisco technology solutions with Take Care Health’s market presence, we believe we are helping to redefine how health services are delivered." Cisco's HealthPresence video conferencing solution is similar to the services used by many businesses and organizations around the United States. Many companies have embraced this form of unified communications because it enables them to hold face-to-face business meetings without having to pay travel costs. To get the most out of a video conferencing solution, businesses often enroll employees in IT training programs that teach best practices.
