precisely. 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. This is a value based service aimed at
revolutionizing user experience like never before.

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. The fetal monitor is a small wearable wireless

activity, thereby providing information on fetal and maternal well-being. The
device is suited for both antenatal care, and during active labor and

The cardiac solution is based on our Assurehealth software platform and
delivers continuous wearable, ambulatory, non-obtrusive ECG data. It is
designed to assist cardiologists to monitor and manage patients with angina,
myocardial infarction, post cardiac procedures like stent, pacemaker and
bypass as well as cardiac failures, from anywhere, through their smart phone
or tablets. This avoids frequent visits to the OPD for follow up, the needless
waiting time and anxiety for patients. This system also aids proactive
management of complications, identifying them with intelligent analysis as and
when they occur and addressing it based on evidence.

T. K. Padmanabha, Chief Technology Officer, Wipro Infotech, India and Middle
East Business of Wipro, said, "Wipro has a Centre of Excellence for ehealth
initiatives, which develops innovative solutions aimed at addressing
challenges in emerging markets. The eHealth COE leverages our product
engineering capabilities and health care IT solutions to create innovative
solutions addressing the dual challenges of affordability and accessibility.
Today, medical services are striving towards using resources effectively to
deliver patient satisfaction. In view of this, mobility-assisted medical
technology will be pivotal in saving time, improving productivity and
increasing convenience for physicians and the patients, thus improving patient
care while cutting down costs. Through Wipro AssureHealth platform and our
current choice of Microsoft platform stack, we help healthcare providers to
not only improve their customer satisfaction but also generate new revenue

"This is truly a wonderful marriage of healthcare and technology where a
doctor, on her/his smart phone or a tablet can literally judge the condition
of the baby in the womb remotely and initiate appropriate action before the
condition deteriorates. I am sure this will be more commonly utilized in the
future, making life easier and safer for the mother, the unborn child and the
care giver," said Dr. H Sudarshan Ballal, Medical Director,  Manipal Hospital
who is always looking to adapt newer technologies in the clinical expertise,
to improve patient experience at Manipal Hospitals.

enable healthcare providers in a way that is unique to the industry. Microsoft
offers cloud-based productivity solutions with integration of multiple form
factors, transforming the practice of medicine from provider-centered
piecework to patient-centered teamwork. Wipro AssureHealth is a wonderful
example of how Microsoft technology platforms like SQL, Windows Server, .NET,
integrated with a wide range of devices on Windows 8 are helping solve
challenging social problems. The solution will assist healthcare providers in
meeting the demands of an evolving healthcare landscape and the joint
initiative will further help to accelerate the transformation of healthcare in
