Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth and LSU Partner to Bring Telemedicine to Orphanage in Guatemala
Date:8/2/2013

(PRWEB) August 02, 2013

On July 18th, 2013, Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth (GPT) (http://www.gatelehealth.org), Louisiana State University Health Science Center (LSU) and Casa Para Ninos Aleluya (CASA) launched its first international telemedicine program. This partnership was formed through an ongoing relationship with former Louisiana Senator and Family Medicine Practitioner, Dr. Donald Hines and GPT's Chief Executive Officer, Paula Guy.

The mission was clear; Casa Para Ninos Aleluya was in need of pediatric specialties and primary care for over 400 abused, orphaned and mistreated children located on campus just outside of Guatemala City. The campus also known as Cuidad de Los Ninos (City of Children) was started in 1988 by missionaries Mike and Dottie Clark. Their vision for CASA is for the kids they serve to have a chance in life and by brining pediatric specialty care to their clinic it will change the futures of so many more. There are an estimated 200,000 orphaned children in Guatemala. The medical needs of hundreds of the children at CASA are met daily through a few nurses that manage a clinic on site. Mike stated, “It has taken several decades to develop this level of support for so many children and it is my hope that CASA will be run by those who grew up here and have decided to give back.”

Mike also reported that the majority of the children brought to CASA have been neglected and abused and the telemedicine clinic will be a much-needed resource for the nurses on site for this level of specialty. There are children on dialysis as well. Matt Jansen, Executive Director for GPT, stated, “The clinic was up and online within 24 hours with the assistance of GPT’s Les Evans. The first patient, Mari, was presented to an LSU physician and diagnosed with a heart condition that needed immediate attention. The nursing staff
