Firstline Doctor/Patient Demonstration
Firstline Doctor/Patient Demonstration is an intelligent exchange platform developed specifically for the healthcare sector. By automating the communications flow between doctors and patients, the system will result in a number of important benefits for both providers and consumers of healthcare services. Simple but often time-consuming tasks such as making appointments, writing prescriptions and accessing patient medical files are all automated via a user-friendly and secure smartphone app.
The platform’s secure architecture is based on a number of Microsoft technologies including Microsoft Surface for touch screen integration, Windows Phone 7, Bing Map for localization features, HealthVault for the secure storage of medical information and Windows Azure for outsourced hosting in the cloud.
Firstline Doctor/Patient Demonstration essentially links all actors in the healthcare sector (doctors, patients and pharmacists) via a secure electronic data exchange system. The resultant streamlining of communications has a long list of benefits:
- Fewer administrative formalities and more efficient time management
- Reduced carbon footprint via paperless communications
- More efficient and effective healthcare services with full respect for privacy
- Greater cost savings for healthcare institutions and the public at large
