Remote MD Program


The Upstate Medical Center of New York’s Remote MD Program asked for this project demo – one of the first of its kind in the medical community. Incorporating redundant networks, it allowed an MD to communicate with an EMT remotely to provide support in an emergency situation through collaborative imagery. The system uses a redundant network architecture and web-based UI. The actual hardware used Java on a laptop with a mobile computer camera for the demo, with more ruggedized hardware scheduled for the second stage demo. Both demos fed to a web client for the MD with a Java applet for interaction.

Note: This project is so old now I just packed away the images. It was pretty ground-breaking stuff when it first came out, however!
