Although video streaming services and video conferencing may have had slow starts across several other vertical markets, the health care industry is adopting medical video technology for unified communications (UC) at a steadily growing clip.

Video conferencing is also crucial to operations and patient care at My Weight Doctor, a diet center based in Washington, D.C, said Josh Goldman, the center's executive vice president.

The diet center first employed its video conferencing platform from Lifesize as a way to unify physicians -- spread out across the center's five locations -- for weekly meetings. It soon saw a need to extend its use of the technology to conferencing with patients.
