“In UK pilot, paramedics send ultrasounds, high-res videos en route to hospitals”
About: Article about a pilot study in Scotland where the aim was to investigate how telemedicine can be used en route to the hospital from rural parts of Scotland. The program was called SatCare and it enabled paramedics to send ultrasound scans together with a video summary of the patient’s condition. In this way the in-hospital doctors can prepare for the treatment and direct the paramedics to other hospitals if needed.
