A method and system for finding the position of a mobile unit with respect to the satellites of a satellite network such as the Global Positioning System and with respect to the base stations of a wireless communications network. Each satellite transmits a signal that consists of a series of frames of a pseudonoise sequence. The frames of a signal received from the satellite network by the mobile unit are arranged as columns of a matrix and are processed coherently to provide estimated pseudoranges and estimated rates of change of pseudoranges for in view satellites. The coherent processing includes performing an orthogonal transform on the rows of the matrix, multiplying the elements of the matrix by Doppler compensation factors, and then, for each satellite in view, convolving the columns of the matrix with the pseudonoise sequence of that satellite. Other pseudoranges are inferred from synchronization burst sequences received by the mobile unit from one or more base stations. If the base stations are

A method and apparatus for providing navigation and information services. A mobile unit which includes a microphone and a speaker is used to communicate between a user and a service location. The service location includes a computer and data storage which includes data on geography, roads, road conditions, traffic and other data which may be of use to a user. The mobile unit includes a receiver and position determination processing circuitry for location determination. A user may obtain navigation information and routing information by pressing a button on the mobile unit so as to initiate communication with the service location. The user then verbally requests the information which he needs by speaking into the microphone. Using location data which is transmitted to the service location and the data in data storage, the computer compiles a response which is transmitted to the mobile unit and through the speaker for communication to the user. The response is stored in the mobile unit and may be reviewed
Van Schaik et al. reply: We agree that adequate and regular quality control of HIV test kits as well as adequate training in performing HIV tests are extremely important.. HIV tests performed at the mobile clinic, community clinic and hospital are all rapid HIV tests, performed outside a laboratory by nursing staff, and are subject to the same quality control issues.. Staff working on the mobile unit are all trained in the use of the rapid tests and our standard operating procedures. We have our own quality control programme and are part of an external quality assurance programme run by the National Health Laboratory Service (NHLS), where to date we have scored 100%. In addition we have an informal quality control method in that we see many known HIVpositive individuals who request re-testing. Any discrepant results are confirmed with laboratory HIV enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)/polymerase chain reaction (PCR).. HIV test kits are stored at temperatures of less than 30ºC in our ...

A communications system includes base transceiver stations providing wireless services for mobile units. The system further includes a packet network coupling the stations to a gateway. To distribute information received for communication to a mobile unit, the gateway may encapsulate the information as a multicast packet addressed to a multicast address. This multicast address corresponds to a multicast group associated with the mobile unit. The packet network distributes copies of the multicast packet to a group of stations that are registered for the multicast group. These stations may then communicate information from the multicast packet to the mobile unit using wireless communications techniques.

PITTSBURG - Ana Negrete greeted her 7-year-old son with a big smile after he got out of the dentists chair at a mobile dental clinic. "His molar wont hurt anymore," Negrete, a Concord resident, said through a Spanish-speaking interpreter after dentist Alida Araica treated Bryan Campos for the severe decay in his baby teeth.. Unlike his mother, Bryan was not smiling, which is not all that surprising after sitting still in the dentists chair for awhile. Bryan, who was cooperative, also happened to turn 7 years old on the day of his appointment.. Araica works for La Clinica de La Raza, a local nonprofit clinic that is part of public-private partnership using the mobile clinic to provide free dental care to low-income children through age 19 in Contra Costa County.

Community EMS, a Southfield, Mich., ambulance and consulting company, has begun pilot testing a mobile health initiative to use paramedics and telemedicine to assess the health of chronic disease patients who develop non-emergency health problems. The pilot is viewed as a way to reduce costly hospital readmissions and unnecessary visits to emergency departments.. "When a patient is discharged from a hospital to home or long-term care facility and they have a chronic illness, many things can trigger a patient being sent back to the hospital," said Greg Beauchemin, CEO of Community EMS. "Some symptoms can be addressed by home health agencies. But after hours, they use an ambulance," Beauchemin said. Because the average cost of an ambulance run to a hospital is $3,700, Beauchemin said, Community EMS can make a house call for "one-tenth of that cost." He said at least 50% of the ambulance runs in the city of Detroits Detroit EMS are unnecessary.. Under the mobile health initiative, Community EMS ...

This is one of the first studies to document costs of implementing a mobile health program to support the delivery of antenatal care services and subsequently increase the number of deliveries in health care facilities. The results show that initiating and implementing a mobile health program for antenatal care is relatively inexpensive and can save lives in comparison to facilities that did not implement the program. We found that implementing the mHealth job aid for antenatal care alone equated to US$13,155 per life saved and US$568 per DALY averted. Including facility birth from a standalone ANC program increased the cost-effectiveness ratios slightly to US$13,739 per life saved and US$594 per DALY averted. However, adding in a simulated demand component that increased unassisted deliveries to 50% in mHealth facilities, reduces the cost-effectiveness to $9,806 per life saved and US$424 per DALY averted.. Due to a dearth of studies examining the cost-effectiveness of mHealth tools to improve ...

Existing programs for integrating buprenorphine treatment models include community health centers, hospital-based settings, and mobile health units.45. The "HIV primary care model involves the same physician administering HIV treatment and buprenorphine.42 This has been the most widely adopted model in the SPNS Buprenorphine Initiative.. This model is particularly attractive for rural settings, community health centers, and clinical settings where addiction specialists are difficult to access. This model also lends itself to adoption in clinical settings where patients may be distrustful of new providers, as it allows patients to access opioid treatment by their same physician.42. The HIV primary care model approach may help decrease stigma associated with substance abuse treatment and may involve greater oversight on the part of the physician monitoring drug-drug interactions.42 Physicians may fear that if patients perform poorly in adhering to buprenorphine, it may put their relationship--and ...

The mobile services ecosystem has evolved and continues to evolve at a rapid pace adjusting to the different players competing to be part of the value creation and capture. This thesis attempts to capture a holistic view of the entire ecosystem and performs a stakeholder value network analysis on the ecosystem and its members. The qualitative model lists, maps and identifies the stakeholders and the monetary, goods / services, information, participation and public benefit value flows between the stakeholders in the ecosystem. The quantitative model attaches numerical values to the different value flows based on a characterization of needs and the importance of the sources fulfilling those needs and creates a value network that is then analyzed to produce relative importance of stakeholders from various perspectives and a ranking of the importance of different types of direct and indirect value flow loops in the system thus creating a framework for strategic ecosystem analysis ...

The Millennium Villages Project (MVP) implemented in Western Kenya a mobile Health tool that uses text messages to coordinate Community Health Worker (CHW) activities around antenatal care (ANC) and Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT), named the ANC/PMTCT Adherence System (APAS). End-user changes in health-seeking behavior in ANC and postnatal care (PNC) were investigated following registration of 800 women into APAS. These investigations employed interviews of pregnant women or new mothers (n = 67) and CHWs (n = 20). Ordinal logistic regressions and exact binomial tests were used in the routine data analyses (n = 650, health registers). All CHWs interviewed agreed that APAS helped them track pregnant woman efficiently, compared to paper-based tracking forms. Women registered in APAS reported that CHWs reminded them of appointments more regularly than before its inception. The routine data analysis showed that among women who had their 1st ANC visit in the 2nd trimester, women who
