In today’s connected world, collaboration is key. That’s why we’ve introduced the latest breakout rooms feature to make your team’s virtual meetings more engaging and productive than ever before.

Telehealth’s rapid evolution has proved there is unprecedented potential for the future of healthcare delivery. In the constantly changing world of telehealth, remote consultations are expanding beyond simple one-on-one patient-doctor interactions. We see group visits in a variety of use cases across the continuum of care. Whether you are in telehealth focused on such things as behavior health or an enterprise customer that is required to host large meetings.

Vidyo’s comprehensive Telehealth Platform offers healthcare facilities a powerful tool that enhances patient and provider interactions, improves access to care, increases engagement, and reduces costs. With Vidyo, you can facilitate virtual group visits for several use cases in a healthcare setting.

Benefits of Breakout Rooms for Group Sessions

According to online sources, breakout rooms offer many social and practical benefits to group sessions. Below are just a few benefits you may experience by implementing this feature:

Attendance: Virtual group therapy enables enhanced attendance among participants, as many people may have to forgo some sessions due to prior commitments. However, with virtual sessions, it’s easier to attend virtually rather than not at all.

Quality Discussions: Organize participants either at random or into more appropriate groups based on similar factors that are relevant to the discussion at hand. This will promote quality discussions and allow participants to discuss topics more deeply.

Participants Connections: Encourage participants to open up and create a better opportunity for quieter members to speak up and let their voices be heard. Smaller groups can help participants more easily connect with each other in a smaller group environment.
