We Get It. 

Most of our clients don't even know we are there...

Northwest Telemedicine Roll Around Surgical Video Production System for Multiple Lab Operations

We understand that having a television crew do a live broadcast from your lab is inconvenient and cumbersome, We also understand that there's logistics, departments and key stakeholders within your organization that need to review and approve how things get done.

At Northwest Telemedicine we treat pre-production as mission-critical. We do our homework before we ever arrive on site. We manage the process of working hand-in-hand with your Lab Adminstrator and Lab Staff, I.T. Networking and Security and Connectivity vendors to ensure that our temporary visit to your facility is well planned, approved and as we call it "Minimally Invasive." Scores of our clients have found our presence in their labs to be nearly invisible.

And thats precisely the way we want it.

With hundreds of surgical procedures under our belt we intrinsically understand the most effective methods and techniques to ensure complete comprehension and understanding of your unique procedures by your audience. We want to replicate the "Being There" experience for your viewers.
