NEW DELHI, INDIA: UST Global, an information technology solutions and services company for Global 1000 enterprises, unveiled an advanced Telemedicine application, conceptualized by Dr. Pavan Kumar, Head of Dept. of Cardiovascular Surgery and Telemedicine centre, Nanavati Super Specialty Hospital, in collaboration with BlackBerry India.
Telemedicine for mobile devices, developed by UST Global, is a BlackBerry10 based mobile application that uses telecommunication in order to enable staff to provide clinical health care at remote locations. The application helps to eliminate distance barriers and to improve access to medical specialists that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities.
In this application, the remote clinic staff enters the visiting patients’ demographics, vital signs, illness details, preliminary diagnosis information, and uploads existing medical reports. The assigned doctor reviews the patient details and performs consultation with the patient remotely using a video session launched through BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). He provides the final opinion and uploads the prescription via the application. The remote clinic staff downloads and hands over a printed copy of the prescription to the patient.
