TelemedicineRecommendations for the Acquisition, Implementation, and Support of a Health Information System.
TelemedicineCanon Hospital in rural Texas has two centers of excellence 100 and 150 miles away. Aware that there are capabilities to do telemedicine programs with the tertiary care centers. As the CIO I have been asked to consider establishing a telemedicine program for the hospital. Establishing a telemedicine program will greatly benefit Canon and their patients. As the CIO I must consider the acquisition, implementation, and support phases of the technology.
