Digital Union's RT1(TM) Software Creates Telegenetics Network for Region 3 Genetics Collaborative
Date:8/19/2007

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Union announced today they have entered into a five-year agreement with members of SERGG (Southeast Regional Genetics Group) in Region 3 to provide RealTime1(TM) (RT1(TM)) software at 15 locations in eight southeastern states, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The Region 3 Genetics Collaborative, funded by HRSA since 2004, has received additional funding for another five-year period. With this renewal, Region 3 will now use RT1(TM) to help them develop and coordinate a network of providers of clinical genetic services in order to improve access to affected individuals and their families in the southeastern United States.

RT1(TM) enables Region 3 members to collaborate in real-time on any health data or diagnostic media, while engaging in multipoint video conferencing. Genetics professionals are now better able to share knowledge and problem solving in the areas of expanded newborn screening and follow-up care for novel metabolic disorders.

"With RT1(TM) we've begun to shrink the distance between our regional genetics centers and improve communication among our members," said Dr. Hans Andersson, Co-Principle Investigator of the Region 3 Collaborative HRSA grant and Director of the Hayward Genetics Center at Tulane University Medical School. "Our ultimate goal is to bring all patients in the region under a broad umbrella of care with prompt and consistent access to experts in every area of clinical genetics."

Region 3 will use RT1(TM) to establish rural telemedicine genetics clinics this year. Future plans include hospital inpatient consultations, support group planning and continuing education for healthcare workers in pertinent areas of genetics. The region, which includes Florida and the Gulf Coast, will also be using RT1 to enhance disaster preparedness planning and response for healthcare operations.

"Digital Union is pleased to provide Region 3 and SERGG with a network that not only supports greater access to expert genetic services for patients, but enables members to share important research and further enhance their educational efforts," said Digital Union CEO Paul Niday. "We're very excited about the next five years."
