Inmarsat, Cisco Team on eHealth Services
LONDON -- Inmarsat (LSE:ISAT.L), the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, announced a new collaboration with Cisco to provide the satellite connectivity needed to make Cisco’s mobile telemedicine system, the Cisco TelePresence VX Clinical Assistant, available in the world’s most remote and underserved communities.
The strategic collaboration will enable Cisco to leverage Inmarsat’s global 3G satellite network, enabling medical teams to provide quality healthcare to communities that are located in areas with little or no terrestrial telecommunications infrastructure.
The VX Clinical Assistant gives healthcare facilities, including hospitals and clinics, the ability to interface and collaborate with medical professionals anywhere in the world using Cisco TelePresence to share content and ultimately deliver medical care. The unit enables the delivery of virtual medical care through high definition videoconferencing and real-time transmission of key diagnostics ranging from ultrasounds to blood pressure readings.
