In this article, we proposed a multifunctional telemedicine system supporting both telediagnosis and teleconsultation services. We attempted not only to insure that the implementation of this system satisfied most requirements, but also to evaluate the impact of the system. With regard to system architecture, we designed a unified multimedia database to(More)
Life is priceless, so pre-hospital evaluation and management is important in emergency medical service. To enhance the quality of emergency medical service, the mobile hospital emergency medical system (MHMES) is designed to provide for e-prepared services. This system could improve the communication among the ambulance, the dispatch and mission control(More)
To solve the inconvenience of routine transportation of chronically ill and handicapped patients, this paper proposes a platform based on a hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) network in Taiwan, designed to make a home telecare system feasible. The aim of this home telecare system is to combine biomedical data, including three-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) and(More)
Taiwan is a heavily populated country, with a small land area and many mountains and isolated islands. Because medical resources are unequally distributed, high quality accessible medical care is a major problem in rural areas. Medical personnel are unwilling to practice in rural areas because of fear of isolation from peers and lack of continuing medical(More)
The percentage of the elderly population grew rapidly in recent years, so the tremendous life and health care needs became an issue of focus in an aging society. The Elderly Nursing Home plays an important role and intends to provide a comfortable environment and living space and serve as safe and healthy place for the elderly. However, the frailty and(More)

This study aims to add tele-ultrasound techniques and emergency physician support to improve the quality of pre-hospital medical emergency services. On the other hand, a diagnostically useful FAST scan is dependent on the skill level of the EMTs using the portable ultrasound unit. However, providing adequate tools is still a prerequisite to the successful(More)
In emergency medical services, portable ultrasound scanners have the potential to become new-age stethoscopes for emergency physicians. For trauma cases in particular, portable ultrasound scanners can scan the chest and abdomen of emergency patients both rapidly and conveniently. This study describes the development of tele-ultrasound for pre-diagnosis in a(More)
The purpose of this system is to establish virtual medical school (VMS) as the platform of e-learning center, which integrates collaborative and self-directed learning environment by virtual group, classroom and library, and automatically converts valuable clinical case from Hospital Information System (HIS) database into virtual patient by online authoring(More)
Handheld computing is a valuable technology to achieve the point-of-care delivery of medical information. This paper reports the construction of a mobile Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system in the Family Medicine (FM) department of National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH). Unified Modeling Language is used to model the EMR architecture, called(More)
