In order to make it more attractive to its enterprise customer base, Microsoft Corporation has incorporated “enterprise-level security” into the Skype platform.
MDLIVE hopes to use the Skype for Business platform to connect health care seekers to their care givers via its “secure, and seamless digital” cloud solution.
