From VoIP.ms Wiki
Industries and organizations have around the world excitedly adopted modern day communication tools like VoIP. Offering numerous benefits, VoIP has become an integral part of communication between clients and the organization. While many tech-savvy industries have a fully functional VoIP channel, many traditional industries are still wary of its efficiency. One such industry, wherein the VoIP technology isn't much integrated as it should be is the healthcare industry. VoIP brings a new level of efficiency and connectivity, which traditional phone services just cannot provide to small clinics or big healthcare offices.

Clinics and hospitals are one such place where they cannot afford downtime of any kind. Technologies require a total overhaul of existing infrastructure which can lead to substantial downtime. Whereas, with VoIP, this is not the case. It can be installed over the existing network and thus eliminating any changes of pertinent downtime. And since VoIP services are cloud-based, most of the equipment needed for its usage is already in place. Thus, eliminating the need for any disruptive installation process. This ensures that healthcare facilities can focus on improving their effectiveness and providing services to patients without any hindrances.
