Asesor is an asynchronous, distributed medical question/translation/answer app. It brings together patients in rural areas of 3rd world countries, translators for those patients, and doctors to answer those patients' questions. Through the app, patients can simply use their telephone to call in and record their medical question. Translators from around the world can then see that question, and translate it into English. Doctors around the world then see the question in English and provide an answer. The original translator can then call the patient back straight from their browser and deliver the doctor's answer in the patient's native language.

The OnSIP & Highrise Click-To-Call mashup, for example, is a new Chrome extension that highlights how phone service as a software opens the gates to smarter business solutions.
