Title: Wireless Applications in Mobile Telemedicine


1
Wireless Applications in Mobile Telemedicine
  • Kent Tonkin,
  • Assistant Director for IT, CERMUSA

2
CERMUSA Defined
  • Research Center
  • Saint Francis University, Loretto, PA
  • Identify Sustainable Technology Solutions for
    improved ACCESS to quality healthcare and
    education in rural, isolated and/or under-served
    areas.

3
Medical Communications Needs
  • Continuous audio communication
  • Vital signs (EKG, SPO2)
  • Offline data storage

4
Technology Overview
Technology Goals
  • Vital signs
  • Images/motion video
  • Multiple pipelines
  • Use of public infrastructure vs. establishing
    infrastructure

5
Technology Overview
  • Technology Difficulties
  • Sporadic mobile coverage
  • Questionable bandwidth
  • Combined pipelines
  • Relevant equipment availability

6
Technology Overview
  • Currently using AMPS, Spread Spectrum (2.4 GHz)
    and UHF (licensing in process)
  • Attempted transmission Audio, patient
    data/vitals, video

7
The Plan
8
Difficulties so far.
  • Bandwidth, bandwidth, bandwidth
  • IP routing over low bandwidth
  • Handling other forms of data

9
Video from an Ambulance?
  • H.323 VTC
  • 2.4 GHz Spread Spectrum
  • Dual mobile and fixed antennae
  • Variable coverage/line of sight

10
Mobile H.323 Gateway
Stand-alone IP VTC
Wireless TCP/IP Network Connection
11
Will it work?
  • Best possible outcomes will continue to improve
  • More bandwidthmore possibilities
  • All communications converge on single standard

12
Next Steps
  • New diversity switch
  • Satellite data
  • Experimentation on real world bandwidth
    (4800-19.2kbps)
  • Digital radios

13
New Technology Challenges
  • Cost/Investment
  • How standard are standards?
  • Quality
  • Path of progression (3G)
  • Security
  • Technology conflicts
