Usability: AFHCAN Telemedicine Carts

AFHCAN » ATA 2009.

I’m currently enrolled in a Master’s of Health Administration, Informatics program with the University of Phoenix. Our assignment this week was to analyze a trend in healthcare and given my specialization within the degree, I chose telemedicine as my topic.

Through the course of my research for the paper, I found an article referencing AFHCAN and the implementation of mobile telemedicine carts for widespread use in Alaska outside of urban centers. What I found most interesting in this article, was the creativity of the networking solution that was put into place to provide remote locations with large volumes of information, including x-rays and graphics.
