Abstract

The advantages that satellite communications can bring to telemedicine include instant access to broadband services, particularly in remote areas where telecommunications are poor or nonexistent, and swift response in many situations where speed is essential. The technical advances being made in telecommunications are opening up more and more exciting possibilities. Wireless and satellite transmission capabilities have increased while costs per unit time have decreased. All of this makes telemedicine more feasible. The authors describe the preliminary results of European HERMES research project to develop and evaluate an online integrated web-based platform with the implementation of satellite communication technologies, related to multimedia services in telemedicine and tele-education fields. Telemedicine can play an important role in improving health services.

Keywords: Medical training, clinical trial, satellite communications, DVB, consulting, web-based platform, e-learning
