Life-saving technology gets an upgrade in Northern Canada

Life saving diagnosis of a patient who survived stroke in North Bay, Canada with remote assistance from a neurologist 300 Km away in Toronto via telecommunications technology and digital brain images captured and transmitted by using computers, cameras and software have recently been held up as a testament to the technology upgrade initiative of Northland Transportation Commission. The commission’s telecommunications branch will invest about $4 million to improve and expand bandwidth and security for healthcare services. The work will allow all 117 hospitals in North Canada to link up to a high capacity healthcare network. This $12 million project to be implemented over the next five years will be done in collaboration with Smart Systems for Health Agency – a telemedicine services firm, along with telecom partners – Hydro One Telecom and Ontera.
