Varaha Systems today announced the successful deployment of its uMobility mobile enterprise software to QMS Healthcare (QMSH), a global leader of advanced healthcare support and services to the United Kingdom private health sector. QMS is using the comprehensive set of uMobility products that include uMobility Mobile Multimedia, GlobalTalk and VPN, which allows users to extend critical hospital information and communication to mobile health workers via smartphone devices. As a result, healthcare workers are now able to move freely and communicate securely inside hospitals, clinics and beyond while improving overall healthcare services.
"Varaha Systems has provided us with a unique solution that can easily be deployed for use by healthcare professionals who are inherently mobile," according to Suresh Sivagnanam, CEO of Woodlands Hospital, a QMSH provider. "Based on the initial hospital deployment, we have seen substantial benefits for the staff, while significantly reducing the cost of our operations. With the uMobility solution, we now are more responsive to our patients and our employee satisfaction has also increased."
The Woodlands Hospital deployment includes GlobalTalk, which provides continuous call support for business features between Wi-Fi and Cellular. As part of GlobalTalk it uses Varaha's intuitive uMobility Deskphone interface that provides superior Service Quality Aware (SQA) handoff for seamless Wi-Fi to Cellular and Cellular to Wi-Fi handoffs, automatic network availability intelligence, connection management and power management. In addition, uMobility VPN provides enterprise-grade security for all communications in compliance with information security requirements in the United Kingdom. Consulting doctors who carry laptop and tablets can extend their secure information access capabilities to critical medical information, such as patient records. The full uMobility solution is deployed in a client - server configuration under the control of QMS Healthcare.
"Varaha Systems understands healthcare professional's needs are all about simplicity and usability," explained Prasad Govindarajan, Varaha Systems' CTO. "Our uMobility solution expands the definition of Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) to a comprehensive and secure voice and data solution providing access to deskset services with increased mobility, accessibility and usability. This starts from the auto-start or auto-connect features and culminates by eliminating the need to reinitiate IVR sessions due to call drops. In essence, we are offering a mobile deskwith global reach."
Because the uMobility products are designed with flexibility and scalability, it can be implemented in a number of applications across various industries as well as for the mobile workforce in businesses and enterprises worldwide.
