Wipro Technologies has developed a medical gateway solution for remote healthcare management on real-time basis through mobile, broadband and dial-up networks. Powered by Intel’s Atom processor, the solution will enable improved care coordination between patients and their healthcare providers. The intelligent embedded platform will monitor, track and manage healthcare information from a remote location. Using convergence technologies, doctors can do real-time clinical review of patients by capturing vital data from medical devices such as blood pressure monitors, glucose metres, pedometers and weighing scales.
Wipro’s strategy is aimed at bridging the gap by providing manufacturers a time-to-market solution to launch customised medical devices. The gateway solution transmits real-time medical data to application servers, physician handhelds and hospital systems through GSM (global system for mobile communication) broadband and dial-up. Wipro engineers did the end-to-end design and developed the high performance, low-cost solution to lower the cost of ownership.
