America’s healthcare industry has undergone an innovative new way of connecting obstetricians and pregnant women nationwide. Through the use of advanced mobile WiFi VoIP technology doctors are now able to monitor labor and delivery patients in real-time through the use of a SIP phone application.
The AirStrip OB application provides doctors with up-to-the minute, and possibly life saving, information. Obstetricians are able to remotely monitor delivery rooms, fetal heart tracings, contraction patters, vital statistics and nursing notes, in a virtual real-time environment, from any SIP phone with mobile VoIP capabilities.
“Health care is a very real-time business. We need anywhere, anytime computing” Memorial Herman of Houston CIO, David Bradshaw, said of his decision to implement the latest in IP telephony.
It is estimated that health related errors cost the American economy $17 to $29 billion each year. By merging mobile voice over IP technology with SIP applications geared towards medical professionals countless amounts of medical errors will be prevented, resulting in more money for the healthcare system.
More than 98,000 American’s lose their lives every year due to medical errors and inefficient communication between practitioners and patients. Thanks in part to mobile IP telephony doctors are able to monitor and receive instantly updated vital statistics and important information virtually with the click of a button. Knowing in real-time when a patients health is in danger, regardless of the physicians location, will no doubt do amazing things for healthcare and in the prevention of preventable deaths.
Without technology like mobile voice over Internet and WiFi medical advancements like this one would never have been possible. VoIP has brought forth more ground breaking advancements in every business and social industry in the last decade than traditional telecom providers have in nearly half a century. Mobile VoIP platforms are paving the way for a safe and well connected future.
