In the morning of November 16th,2012, in Vinh City, the Department of Health collabrated with Newtel to hold a workshop aim to present about Telemedicine solution.
Attending and directing the workshop was Director of Department of Health – Dr. Bui Dinh Long and leaders of district, commune and commune health units in Nghe An province. Dr. Bui Dinh Long emphasized that “Nghe An should accelerate the application of information technology in the health sector with the aim of improving medical examination and treatment at all levels, as well as professional qualifications for the medical staff of the province”.
At the conference, Newtel introduced Telemedicine solutions including: consultation with experts; remote medical examination, telemedicine counseling; online surgery performed by specialized physicians. With this solution, the professional qualifications of lower level doctors will be raised, lowered for upper level hospitals and increased for lower level hospitals in Nghe An.
Hopefully in the future, Telemedicine system will be applied sucessfully in Nghe An for medical examination and training and technology transfer.
