Medview MD, a private medical company in Canada demonstrates their primary care clinics in retail pharmacies throughout Canada.  The placement of their services inside pharmacies is convenient for patients and it helps bring in new customers for the pharmacies.

MedviewMD, a private company, hopes to open its second studio, following a location in North Bay earlier this fall, by the middle of next week, with the aim of giving Sudburians "orphaned" by the system and without primary health-care physicians an option other than the emergency room.

The Baystate Health telemedicine program connects speciality doctors with patients, without requiring the patients to travel far from their home communities. They are currently leveraging telemedicine to service patients in rural community medical centers for stroke, infectious disease, geriatrics and palliative care.


The Kirkjubaejarklaustur clinic, part of Heilbrigdisstofnun Sudurlands (Health Suderlands HSU), is the first healthcare facility in Iceland to implement a clinical telemedicine program of its kind. Located in a small town (in the middle of nowhere), this rural community clinic is surprisingly busy during the tourist season (May-Sept) - they see up to 60 patients per day! The use of AGNES Interactive and the IMEDS Clinical Telemedicine System allows them to access dermatologists, cardiologists and other specialty providers in real-time to address their patient's immediate medical needs.

As telemedicine may not be the best care plan for all specialties, being able to have instant access to specialized help is especially essential for stroke victims. "After suffering a stroke, about two million brain cells die every minute that someone goes without treatment",  says Dr. Mackey from Indiana University Health Stroke Telemedicine Program.  With telemedicine, specialists like Dr. Mackey can now provide instant feedback to multiple patients.

SSM Healthcare in Oklahoma and St. Anthony Hospital expand their patient care to rural communities through the use of telemedicine technology.  One such example is their tele-dermatology program which allows them to support primary care physicians by co-managing patient care and provide specialist advice for treatment plans. Renee Grau, the Medical Director at Saints Dermatology Center for Excellence comments that dermatology is one of the best applications for telemedicine, adding " photography has become the stethoscope of the dermatologist...".

PROYECTO TELESALUD para Bolivia: a country-wide deployment to 339 remote health centers in Bolivia municipalities to support government initiatives to improve rural population access to healthcare. The scope of the project includes telemedicine program design, telemedicine carts, medical devices, encounter management software and technical training. The medical specialties serviced with the telemedicine equipment include primary care and women’s health.

In order to design and implement the project, the Ministry of Health teamed up with three cross-sector partners – International Telecommunication and Technology Integration S.A. (ITTI), a private Bolivian corporation, and Entel S.A., a public telecommunication company, owned by the State and AMD Global Telemedicine.
