day of caring_voip_supply_2014_3

This past week on September 17th and 18th, VoIP Supply participated in the 22nd Annual United Way of Caring in what has become one of the biggest community service events in Buffalo and Western New York.

MobiHealthNews writer Jonah Comstock posted an article today, Five Reasons Virtual Doctor Visits Might Be Better Than In-Person Ones, showing how video conferencing is growing in popularity for healthcare uses:

  1. Convenient for both patient and doctor
  2. A virtual waiting room is better than the physical one
