While it’s likely the general populace may not know this:
May is Better Hearing and Speech month (#BHSM) – time to call public attention to the wide range of hearing and speech disorders experienced by thousands of Americans.
BHSM also includes a month-long celebration of medical professionals who diagnose and treat those conditions: audiologists, speech-language pathologists (SLPs), and others.
As a provider of a medical video platform operating in thousands of hospitals across the nation – our company TIMS Medical, is laser-focused on developing technologies that help improve the workflow of Speech-Language Pathologists, while also improving the quality of evaluations and treatments they provide to patients.
Coinciding with the recognition of BHSM, this month TIMS Medical is also celebrating the release of TIMS MVP 4.5, the latest iteration of our flagship product for recording, editing, reviewing, and archiving medical imaging studies in high resolution video with synced audio.

TIMS MVP 4.5 is now available to customers performing Modified Barium Swallow (MBS), Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES), and general endoscopy studies.
TIMS MVP 4.5 adds new capabilities for standardized scoring (MBSImP, DIGEST, PAS, FOIS), measurement, live streaming video for collabortion, and other workflow improvements to the list of sophisticated tools that thousands of Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs), radiologists, and other medical professionals rely on daily for recording, reviewing, editing, and diagnosing imaging studies of patients with speech and swallowing disorders.
TIMS Connect (a component of TIMS MVP 4.5) enables live-streaming video for remote, real-time collaboration on any medical procedure(e.g., speech language pathology, endoscopy, surgery), as well as for medical education and training.
