TeleEmpathy: Creating Vital Human Connections in the COVID-19 Era


Hospital ICU Covid-19 Hotspot 

In 2020, many healthcare facilities were overwhelmed with caring for patients with Covid-19.  Onix and Google Cloud worked together to create a remote communication solution to enable more human connections when in-person communication just wasn’t possible.

Our Task


Family and caregivers can now leverage Google tools to communicate effectively with loved ones in hospitals and nursing facilities. In this on-demand webinar, you’ll hear about an innovative solution that Onix and Google Cloud created.



Dr. Michael Kanevsky, a physician working on the front lines of the pandemic, and Sunnie Southern, Vice President of Health and Life Sciences at Onix will describe the challenges encountered in one of the hospital ICUs most impacted by Covid-19, and how Google technology and Onix services have helped to improve communication between patients and their loved ones when in-person communication is not possible.
