Guthrie was recently recognized as a Zoomtopia 2019 Innovation Award winner for its use of innovative technology. Guthrie was chosen as one of three winners of the 2019 Zoomtopia Innovation Award, which recognizes Zoom customers that embody innovation, inspiration, and creativity in using Zoom solutions.

Telemedicine connects patients and providers in separate locations using video technology. Video visits allow patients in rural communities to complete visits with specialists while staying close to home. 

Each year, as part of Zoom’s annual conference, the company applauds organizations who are using their tool in the most innovative ways. To be named a Zoomtopia 2019 Innovation Award winner recognizes Guthrie’s commitment to finding new ways to give its staff the cutting-edge technology they need to deliver the best patient care.
