Orascom Telecom, Mobinil and Great Connection Collaborate to Launch Mobile Baby™ Service in Egypt
Date:2/15/2011

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Orascom Telecom and Mobinil, in collaboration with Great Connection, today announced the launch of a pilot project to bring mobile DICOM sonar images remote diagnostics to pregnant women in Egypt.  

Mobile Baby™ service, offered in Egypt by Mobinil, the country's leading mobile operator, enables healthcare providers in clinics to transfer patients' ultrasound images wirelessly to family members and referring physicians for expert advice. Mobile Baby™ is initially launched in Cairo Scan, one of Egypt's major clinics, with plans to expand the service availability to clinics and hospitals across other parts of the country, including rural regions. The initiative is part of Orascom Telecom's and Mobinil's shared commitment to using technology to bring economic and social benefits to the Egyptian people in urban and rural areas.  

Mobile Baby™ enables medical practitioners to send ultrasound images, video clips and 3D scans to and from referring physicians for remote medical diagnostics. The application works directly from ultrasound machines, with images delivered to any mobile phone via SMS, MMS and email.

According to Khaled Bichara, Group Chief Executive Officer, Orascom Telecom, "Currently, the patient to doctor ratio in Egypt is 1 to 1,900. This disparity makes it challenging for healthcare providers to meet the healthcare needs in Egypt's rural regions, particularly pregnant women requiring pre-natal care. Mobile Baby™ is the first such service to be deployed in Egypt and we are proud to be launching this pilot project with Mobinil and Great Connection with encouragement from Orascom Telecom's Executive Chairman Naguib Sawiris and Dr. Paul Jacobs, Chairman and CEO of Qualcomm.  In this effort, we hope to improve the health and well-being of Egypt's citizens."
