My vision is having an “emergency point” (EP) (room with video wall, speakers and basic medical equipment and medication) in isolated villages where patients could be treated by non-experts through video conference. They get how and what to do instructions by a professional who should be located in an hospital or can be connected via his terminal or smartphone in case of emergency.
This MD should be available within a very short time to provide necessary information and improve the outcome of the patient. He or she must instruct the persons what to do. (e.g. also advanced live support).
Theses system should bridge the time gap between the moment of emergency and, if necessary, the moment till the ambulance arrives.
The video data can be transferred via UMTS (mobile) or DSL (EP -Hospital) or if these services are not available (mountains, rainforest,… via satellite communication).
