System for Parallel Data and Voice Communication channel for mobile eHealth applications
Telemedicine or mobile e-health applications often require a simultaneous communication channel for data and voice to be established between two or multiple parties for the purpose of acquiring and distributing data using existing mobile telephone infrastructure and/or the Internet.
The system includes methods, protocols and tools for acquiring data from Bluetooth or USB transducers, analyzing the data, identifying triggers and establishing a simultaneous data and voice connection to another mobile or fixed device. This technology is thus suitable for a multitude of mobile eHealth applications as well as any application that may require ongoing feedback to perform an operation
