Bangalore: Wipro Technologies, the global IT and outsourcing business of Wipro Limited, on Thursday announced the launch of the Wipro AssureHealth platform in partnership with Microsoft.
"This is primarily targeted at healthcare providers to deliver innovative solutions for remote fetal monitoring and cardiac care that will ensure high quality treatment at reduced costs, especially for chronic diseases", the Bangalore-headquartered company said in a statement.
The platform leverages Microsoft’s cloud, mobility and analytics offerings to allow care providers to monitor patients regularly and precisely, it said.
This is done through hosted services and mobile apps that integrate medical devices, IT Infrastructure and 24/7 customer support, to deliver highly scalable solutions.
"The fetal monitoring service delivers accurate recordings of maternal, fetal heart rate and uterine activity from the expectant mother to the physician over his/her mobile device thereby enhancing the doctors ability to provide enhanced care to patients", Wipro said.
The fetal monitor is a small wearable wireless device that provides beltless monitoring of the mother and the baby in the womb. It accurately records maternal and fetal heart rate, and uterine activity, thereby providing information on fetal and maternal well-being, it was stated.
