Healthcare is moving towards a new paradigm. Hospitals are being encouraged to reduce the need for prolonged hospitalisation. For general practices and surgeries, the focus is on improving efficiency and reducing missed appointments – did not attends (DNAs). Securing a reduction in real estate costs and developing a more sustainable system, which overall results in an improved quality of life for everyone, are key goals. Technology is being used in ever increasing ways across many disciplines, such as diagnosis, care, assistance, test results, rehabilitation, and for patient management and information systems.

Gateways enable communication where otherwise, it would be impossible.
Gateways are analogous to interpreters. They don’t translate the conversation during your calls, but they do interpret, and in doing so interwork, the protocols that set up and manage your conversations.
In that sense, gateways render the impossible possible. But that’s not the whole story…

Gateways are great. That’s because they enable communications where otherwise, it would be impossible. Impossible that is other than by using something else. Funnily enough, that something else is often a monolithic PBX that is made to mimic the functions of a gateway. Less amusing is that such a solution is often far more expensive, and involves capital outlay on something inherently obsolete.
