Mobile telemedicine and eHealth
WAN links based on bonding DSL, UMTS / HSPA+ / 3G, CDMA, LTE / 4G or satellite radio assist in tele- and emergency medicine
For emergency services, it's all about human life. With Viprinet WAN bonding which couples media like DSL, UMTS / HSPA+ / 3G, CDMA, LTE / 4G or satellite radio in any combination, any ambulance may become a mobile doctor's office or health care center with specialists virtually present via data, video and audio conferencing.
Your benefits of mobile tele- and emergency medicine based on WAN connections with bonded UMTS / HSPA+ / 3G, CDMA, WiMAX, LTE / 4G or satellite radio:
- Optimization of outpatient medical treatment by consulting specialists via video and data conference - regardless of location, e.g. in emergency vehicles
- Independent local consultation via video and data conferencing
- Reliable monitoring of vital signs of patients being cared for at home
Bonding UMTS / HSPA+ / 3G, CDMA, LTE / 4G and satellite radio assists in the mobile medical care of patients
A human life is extremely valuable. In the health sector, implied values can thus be derived per year and per quality-adjusted life year (QALY). Interventions costing less than 20,000 dollars per QALY are described as very cost-effective. If the costs lie between 20,000 and 100,000 dollars, they feature moderate cost-effectiveness. This value is based on a study of the Winterthur Institute of Health Economics (WIG) from the year 2006.
At such amounts - in conjunction with the fact that early, proper treatment of the diseases and emergencies reduces risks dramatically - one can immediately understand that the persistent and location-independent availability of necessary resources and experts has a value-preserving effect in terms of a human life. Thus, the need and cost of mobile tele- and emergency medicine are sufficiently substantiated.
Only the bonding of various WAN media - including mobile and satellite radio - ensures the optimal treatment of patients outside of hospitals and doctor's offices. The powerful, reliable and location-independent connection of emergency vehicles saves lives and makes a significant contribution to health economics.
