Hippo is a global team of healthcare professionals, technologists, experience designers and innovators. Its mission is to serve patients and those who care for them by leading the transformation to virtual care for providers and educators, expanding access to clinical expertise and technologies to improve the quality of healthcare.
Originating from its work with the US Department of Defense, Hippo's technology is the result of tens of millions of dollars of R&D and has been road tested in the harshest environments, including sub-Saharan Africa and offshore oil rigs.
When the COVID-19 epidemic broke out in Wuhan, China, Hippo Technologies was used by frontline healthcare workers to provide specialist care to high risk patients.
Overview of the Virtual Care Movement
Hippo Virtual Medical Education
Convening medical students and faculty at a central location is expensive under normal conditions and impossible at present due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Hippo Virtual Med Ed platform enables medical students to ”see through the eyes of the physician” and can be used for ongoing skills training and assessment as well as remote proctoring, evaluation and calibration of procedures and skills.
Hippo Specialist Remote Consultation
Hippo extends the capability of practicing physicians and Advanced Care Practitioners, enabling clinicians to practice to the top of their license. Hippo increases the capacity to provide specialist care particularly in rural and remote settings, where the average wait time to see a specialist can be more than a month.
