Telemedicine company adds Fort Lauderdale staff

Susannah Hilton has joined Tampa Bay-based DigiGone as business development in the Fort Lauderdale area. She will represent its digiMed product of telemedicine to the large yacht sector. The company offers medical kits as well as secure video conferencing with doctors and medical care.

Formed in 2007, much of DigiGone’s business is in the commercial shipping and aviation industries. Though it has serviced yacht clients for years through its industry partner National Marine Suppliers, Hilton’s hiring marks its commitment to expand into the luxury yachting market.

“National Marine is our main partner in yachting, but I needed someone down there to handle yacht calls,” said Michael Dunleavy, owner of DigiGone. “Part of it is networking on a regular basis, getting the word out and getting feedback from our clients.”

A former television producer, Hilton has a background in business development and marketing.

“As telemedicine increasingly becomes a must-have for the recreational yachting industry, I look forward to bringing an affordable and easy-to-use medical emergency care solution into the growing maritime industry,” she said.

DigiGone offers several other platforms of service, including encryption and video conferencing.

“We design our videoconferencing to work with a variety of satellite service providers using background IP, which makes our kits and services affordable to the customer,” Dunleavy said. “Our product is different because we operate at a significantly lower bandwidth, which allows us to offer additional features such as simultaneous multiparty videoconferencing with medical specialists.”
