The University of Louisville created a program, Pulse of Surgery, connecting middle and high school students to surgeons, nursing staff and perfusionists during live open-heart surgery.
They are utilizing BlueJeans Rooms and BlueJeans Meetings to teach and share information in spaces, like surgical rooms, that were otherwise off-limits to students. Their program is providing a unique first-hand experience that can only be facilitated by video conferencing.
Also, during the COVID-19 crisis, the University of Louisville is adapting its use of video conferencing from education to operational to ease healthcare professionals' workload and help patients without meeting them on-site.
