• If You Could Reduce Costs and Save Lives, Would You?


    If you could reduce your IT spending by 80% in the healthcare sector, would you? That's what Hiranandani Hospital in India has done.

    By using BlackBerry software, hardware, and UST Global's new telemedicine app, Hiranandani Hospital is able to cut their spending from using BlackBerry Smartphones and software.

    "BBM Video has been a great tool for us to communicate with patients in rural areas,” said Dr. Pavan. “Cellular connectivity is often more reliable than landlines in some areas, so BBM Video is an excellent solution to meet our needs. The ability to connect and see our patients in real-time is incredibly powerful."

    Not only are patients seeing a saving in time and money by driving to see doctors at Hiranandani hospital, the hospital itself has seen an 80 percent reduction in IT infrastructure costs compared to using landlines and desktops.
