Campbell, CA, USA, March 23, 2020 -- 8x8, Inc. (NYSE:EGHT), an integrated cloud communications platform, announced Denver-based health care provider Every Child Pediatrics has expanded their use of 8x8 Cloud Communications solution by adding "virtual visits," which enables video conferencing between a doctor, medical staff, counselor or dietician and a patient.
Every Child Pediatrics, established in 1996, is a non-profit organization providing affordable, comprehensive health care to more than 24,000 children across 16 clinics in urban and rural communities in Colorado. The organization is the largest pediatric practice in the state.
Almost 99 percent of patient visits were in-person and on-site, and the organization recognized it needed to enhance care by also providing a telemedicine option, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Every Child Pediatrics wanted to offer virtual visits, so children and parents could be seen by a medical practitioner and ask questions in a safe manner through a mobile device or computer screen. The use of telemedicine techniques would allow Every Child Pediatrics to reach even more patients and deliver the same quality health care.

"We are committed to providing high-quality health care to all children, regardless of their family’s insurance status or ability to pay," said Jessica Dunbar, Executive Director at Every Child Pediatrics. "The current public health crisis is challenging us to think differently about how we can most effectively deliver medical and behavioral health care and counseling to as many children as possible during this difficult time. With 8x8 Virtual Office desktop and mobile applications and 8x8 Video Meetings, we are able to enhance our care to help even more of those in need, regardless of location."
Earlier this month, Every Child Pediatrics, using the 8x8 Rapid Expansion Program, extended their use of 8x8 X Series - including cloud voice, video and chat - to their medical staff. Partnering with 8x8 allowed Every Child Pediatrics to quickly move from in-person care to virtual visits, enabling the medical team to consult with children and their parents as if they were in the office.
"Non-profit organizations are often on the front lines during these challenging times, and need to be ready, resilient and responsive without a reduction in providing quality care or service," said Vik Verma, Chief Executive Officer at 8x8, Inc. "The work Every Child Pediatrics is doing to provide high-quality, affordable health care to Colorado’s children in the midst of this public health crisis is incredible. 8x8’s cloud communications platform is dedicated to enabling exactly this kind of innovation."
