honour for Telemedicine Centre
2000 Presidents Award for the Advancement of Telemedicine
from the American Telemedicine Association has been awarded to
Memorials Telemedicine Centre.
panel of distinguished experts in the field of medicine and technology
selected Memorials Telemedicine program from an extensive
list of programs operating throughout North America.
Carl Robbins, chair of the Telemedicine Centre, said Memorial
is a pioneer in the use of telehealth technologies to deliver
health and education programming to distant populations, having
started its telemedicine program almost 25 years ago. This
award from a prestigious organization is a recognition of a long
term activity that weve been carrying out in telehealth
and tele-education, and were all very proud of it.
Robbins said Memorials expertise is built on finding the
lowest cost, low-technology solutions to customer needs. We
are now moving into more sophisticated technologies with our
satellite network, but we still have a philosophy of finding
out what health organizations and educational agencies want and
finding the best solution for them at affordable costs. This
award recognizes that expertise.
Presidents Award for the Advancement of Telemedicine is
sponsored by the American Medical Development Inc. and Welch
Allyn. Both are medical equipment suppliers who provide high
technology applications for telemedicine.
