High-Speed Internet Connects Physicians in U.S., India

High-Speed Internet Connects Physicians in U.S., India - iHealthBeat : "Physicians at Johns Hopkins University this week used Internet2 - an advanced Internet connection - to interact with physicians in India during an online, interactive HIV/AIDS clinic, the Baltimore Daily Record reports. The Internet2 network, which is about 1,000 times faster than the average home broadband connection, connected physicians at eight U.S. facilities and three Indian facilities. The online clinic also utilized video conferencing, high-resolution digital microscopy, three-dimensional MRIs and an interactive model of HIV drug resistance. Dr. Robert Bollinger, director of the John Hopkins University Center for Clinical Global Health Education, said the Internet2 program will expand on the university's work to provide care and education to areas of the world with limited resources. He added that utilizing the Internet2 network is a long-term, cost-effective alternative to physicians traveling across the world, the Daily Record reports."
