Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 16, 2010
GlobalMedia Managing Director Joel E. Barthelemy will attend and speak at the Fourth Intensive Balkan Telemedicine and e-Health Seminar in the Republic of Montenegro which will be held November 19 and 20, 2010. GlobalMedia, Polycom and Medweb are sponsors of the seminar in Podgorica. Lectures will review the basics of telemedicine and e-health through an integrated and multidisciplinary approach.
Barthelemy said GlobalMedia is honored to be invited to participate with the International Virtual e-Hospital Foundation (IVeH) and the Ministry of Health in Montenegro. “Access to cost effective quality healthcare networks is not an issue exclusive to the United States,” Barthelemy noted. “The unique healthcare challenges that exist in Montenegro may be well served by innovative technology and thinking.”
IVeH is helping the Ministry of Health in Montenegro to organize the event. Dr. Rifat Latifi, Chairman of the program and President of IVeH, says the seminar “will be instructive for various medical, technical and administrative healthcare personnel of hospitals and private practices.”
The first seminar in 2002 resulted in the creation of a successful and sustainable country-wide telemedicine program in the Republic of Kosova. In 2007, the second seminar helped initiate and implement an integrated telemedicine and e-health program in Albania. Eventually, the project in that nation will have 14 telemedicine centers. Macedonia was the site of the third seminar in 2009 which helped initiate the growth of a telemedicine network in that country. Each seminar has broadened the understanding of the immense capacity that telemedicine can offer and has acted as a catalyst for the development of telemedicine programs. The hope is that the November seminar will create a framework for Montenegro to provide state of the art healthcare services to its people.
