    100-gig Broadband Launches Telemedicine Beyond the Drawing Board

    in Internet

     


    A recent survey of economic development pros reveals that 43% believe broadband-driven telemedicine will have a significant impact on local economies. Maybe it’s time communities move that needle well north of 50%.


    The Illinois Medical District in Chicago is betting a 100-gig network covering 560 acres and digitally integrating over 40 medical facilities will reduce costs, score major research projects and attract new businesses. District Executive Director Warren Ribley explains the details of this ambitious project, and why other communities should consider something similar. Fujitsu Network Communications is a key private-sector partner in this project.


    Though many people mistakenly assume large metropolitan areas to be the land of broadband abundance, Ribley describes the area as currently “a broadband desert.” Telemedicine, when powered by Internet at light speed, promises to be an economic accelerant to lift up urban and rural communities that have vision, creatively and seriously good planning.

    State Policies That Advance Telemedicine and Gigabit Cities

    in Internet

    Oregon has the highlest level of broadband adoption in the U.S. and the lowest percentage of unserved constituents. This did not happen by accident, but through deliberate policymaking that reach to the highest level of state government. Chris Tamarin, Telecom Strategist for the Oregon Business Development Dept., joins us to talk about how his state became the leader of the pack. Of particular interest is how Oregon has established policies that overcome barriers to greater telemedicine advancement, such as:
    *  encouraging and supporting the rapid deployment of telemedicine services where they currently do not exist; *  requiring health benefit plans to provide coverage of medically necessary telemedical health services; and *  requiring Oregon Health Authority to adopt uniform credentialing and privileging standards for telemedicine service providers (pending governor's signature.
    Tamarin also gives listeners an overview of how local communities can build more effective relationships with state government that bring more businesses to town. Oregon's broadband policymakers have forged such relationships since 1991.

    DocOnCall24/7 offers truckers remote access to certified doctors

    in Health

    Thursday May 28th, 2015 A vital part of anyone’s healthcare is the ability to communicate with a certified medical doctor when a health problem arises. For truckers, this issue is most difficult, as they are most of the time far away from their primary care physician and on route to either pick up or deliver a load. 


    Most drivers get paid by the mile and do not get paid "sick time" to even go to a doctor. To make matters worse, many are without medical insurance. All too often, a truck driver will ignore an illness or symptoms, hoping it "goes away".  Unfortunately this can often lead to a serious outcome for the driver.

    Teladoc® and DocOnCall24/7 have a service designed and available for the professional truck driver which allows truckers to access a certified medical doctor 24/7 and 365 days of the year. Communication between you and the Doctor can be done by phone, video or email.

    Join us as our DocOnCall247 guest discusses the many benefits of this vital membership. Telemedicine is a relatively new kind of medical service and there are many who are unfamiliar. We will be taking callers questions via call-in number: 347-826-9170. Press "1" on your keypad at anytime to join the conversation.


    AVAILABLE NOW for all. FREE Prescription Discount Cards for the iPhone and Android smartphones. Use the Group: NBRx9848A for discounts at all major pharmacies,lowest cost for the medication, and find nearest pharmacy.
