AMD Global Telemedicine Inc. Chosen by InterHealth Canada as the Telemedicine Solutions Provider for Turks and Caicos Hospital Project
Date:5/13/2010

AMD's solutions will be used in InterHealth Canada's three new Turks and Caicos clinical facilities allowing the islands to provide access to medical specialists, improve care and eliminate travel.

(PRWEB) May 13, 2010 -- AMD Global Telemedicine Inc, the worldwide leading supplier of telemedicine technology, devices, and application software for both dynamic encounters (live telemedicine) and deferred consultations, announced today that InterHealth Canada selected AMD and Audio Visual Concepts, Inc., a Polycom reseller, to provide advanced telemedicine solutions for use in their Turks and Caicos Islands hospital project.

AMD's telemedicine solutions will work in conjunction with both Polycom's HDX products and Polycom's Converged Management Application TM (CMA™) solution to allow the Turks and Caicos Islands access to medical specialists that were previously unavailable on the islands. The hospitals, located on Providenciales, Grand Turk and South Caicos are scheduled to open in April 2010.

Upon completion of the project, both hospitals and three primary care clinics on the 'family islands' will be connected by telemedicine. These connections will widen the availability of medical specialist advice to the population. The use of telemedicine on the islands will also help to improve the quality of care available and reduce or eliminate unnecessary travel for many patients.

When both hospital facilities open their doors in April they will be equipped with the following AMD solutions:

    

 
  • AMD's Dispatch Case,
  •     
  • AMD's AGNES Medical Gateway,
  •     
  • AMD's General Exam Camera and
  •     
  • AMD's Camera and Illumination System and Diagnostic Scopes.

Services provided at the hospitals will include diagnostic services, primary care and outpatient specialty clinics, emergency services and inpatient care.

Dr. Roger Cheesmen, Chief Executive Officer of InterHealth Canada's Turks & Caicos Project in the Caribbean said, "This is an exciting time in healthcare for Turks and Caicos. I am delighted to be working with the team at AMD to implement the telemedicine solutions being brought to the islands."

"AMD is very pleased and honored to have been chosen by InterHealth Canada to take part in this exciting health care transformation taking place in the Turks and Caicos Islands," AMD Vice President of Global Sales and Corporate Development, Dan McCafferty stated.
