"Mobile technologies are playing an important role in the healthcare industry and we hope this tie-up with Maestro would be the next game-changer in the healthcare sector over the next few years," RIM Managing Director (India) Frenny Bawa told reporters at the launch of the mobile ECG.

The service will gradually be introduced in other parts of India.
