After additional mobile telemedicine workstations VIMED® TELEDOC 5 were delivered, integrated and networked in Australia the 4th phase of the project Victorian Stroke Telemedicine Program (VST) was completed in June 2016. There are 16 mobile telemedicine systems VIMED® TELEDOC 5 deployed overall and several Servers in the VST network. The Melbourne based on call stroke neurologists examine patients with stroke symptoms at regional hospitals throughout the state of Victoria. Despite distances of up to several hundred kilometers the neurologists are able to perform an examination and diagnose the type of stroke using telemedicine before recommending suitable treatment.
MEYTEC prevailed against stiff international competition to secure the contract to provide a telemedicine solution for VST making this one of MEYTEC’s biggest telestroke network outside of Germany.
