What the demo did:

Dr. Starling - Associate Director of Cardiology / University of Michigan
Health System, Ann Arbor, Michigan/US

Dr. Mariano - Cardiology Physician / University of Amazonas Hospital, Manaus,
Amazonas/Brasil

On May 5, 2000 Dr. Starling from the University of Michigan Health System
(UMHS) and Dr. Mariano from University of Amazonas Hospital performed a
telemedicine consult between the Michigan and Amazon. The consultation was
over a young man with a severe heart problem requiring prompt surgery. The
specific type of heart problem is an area of study by the National Institute
of Health (NIH). Dr. Starling is currently working under two of these NIH
grants and was very willing to share his findings with Dr. Mariano over the
video conferencing link. While the physicians simultaneously studied the
echo cardiograph they dialoged with each other and the medical technologists
operating the equipment. The technologists manipulated various heart
scanners, cardio microphones and electrical impulse monitors. The physicians
spoke through an interpreter in Manaus. The interpreter remained close to the
video conferencing speakers and microphones to bridge the gap between english
and portuguese. No translation was required for medical terms; subjective
dialog was greatly enhanced by the presence of the interpreter. The
physicians consulted with each other for about 30 minutes concluding with a
treatment plan specific to the patient. The consultation was very successful
based on post consultation interviews with the physicians.

The entire telemedicine consultation was televised and streamed over the
internet. The local television company (TV Amazonas) uplinked the feed to
AmazonSat who broadcast the signal to the entire country of Brasil and beyond
to Venezuela and Columbia . The TV station packaged the telemedicine
consultation as a prime time program with a live 10 man crew, studio with
lights and cameras, control room, uplink and many more resources. The TV crew
created picture in picture images of the attending and referring physicians ,
close up shots of the diagnostic equipment and close ups of a studio audience
asking questions about the technology and how to be able to use such resources
for business and distance learning as well as telemedicine.

What difficulties I encountered:

Nothing was built in Manaus, no connection to the phone company, no digital
switch, no VC equipment. The expectations were that 3 each ISDN BRI
lines would be available and VC gear would be waiting for me to work on. I
gave the demonstration a 20% chance of success after getting the
event status late Sunday night [May 28th] as I was kindly picked up at the
airport. It is better for the next event if the telephone company have the
BRI's available before I arrive. That way we can start by troubleshooting the
lines. If this is not possible we should have three extra days to
deliver these lines and then the three days to set up demonstration equipment
with remote video conferencing sites. It was divine that we
succeeded and I am very pleased so many workers came together to make this
happen. The efforts of the TV Amazonas staff, Embratel technologists
and Phillips technologists were well beyond the call of duty. The risk by
doing this on such a short time frame is getting allot of people
involved and not being able to deliver. Some people will assume that the
technology is not ready when in fact it is solid. It is important to
the mission of the workshops that these key technologies work. I am really
glad I was able to help with this and maintain the image you are
trying to present. In summary, more than three days are required to build a
digital microwave link, install a digital telephone switch,
provision the switch for ISDN, install video conferencing equipment and
connect that equipment (video and audio inputs and outputs) to a control
room and test the circuits to the remote workshop locations. Even with these
facts, I would do the same thing again and understand that the
funding model may not be able to support a full time engineer to plan events
like this ahead of time.

>
> (3) Pls let me know the response to this inquiry to Eric and Lori.

Eric and Lori,
This request is in reference to any other tests that can be done over a video
link that are as purposeful as the electrocardiograph diagnosis.
Moving images and color are good for demonstration purposes.

Dr. Utsumi,
I met with Dr. Bashshur on Friday and he has told me that he would like
me to represent the University of Michigan Hospital at these remote
locations pending financing considerations for each case. For the
Philippines he will pay for the hours that I am there if you can come up
with the plane ticket, hotel and meals. He is very interested in
Beirut, Lebanon and will likely fund an entire trip there in the near
future. Do you have any events on the horizon for Beirut?

Social Security Number:

II. Reason for selection:

He is a key person (loaned from the University of Michigan) for our
telemedicine demonstration during our Manila workshop which is to open the
eyes of decision-makers for the value of broadband Internet so that they will
deploy it in the Philippines at their earliest possible time.

III. Expected tasks after the conference:

He can integrate technology providers together very quickly and with a high
degree of success. The following article about the Manaus/Amazona/Brazil
workshop on May 31st, 2000 was based on a three 16 hour days with anywhere
>from 6 to 20 technologists pulling together the event. He would consider
himself the Project Manager / Engineer for these technologists. On day one
they had to build a digital microwave link between the local telephone company
(EMBRATEL) and one of the local television stations (TV AMAZONAS). On day two
they had to install a PBX to convert the fractional T-1 signal to 4 each BRI
signals. The PBX manufacturer (Phillips) representatives were under a lot of
pressure to complete an entire PBX installation in one day. They had some
real challanges since the PBX was missing a power supply and had at least one
bad CPU card. Finally, on day three they installed the video conferencing
equipment and started testing the EMBRATEL trunks, digital microwave, PBX and
video conferencing gear as a complete system. The entire system came together
at 6 pm that evening for a 7 pm event.

What the workshop coordinators were told by EMBRATEL and Phillips was that the
digital microwave and the PBX would be installed before he arrived on site.
His role was to have three days to interconnect the Aligent Echocardiograph
with the video conferencing system and make sure the University of Michigan
physician and technologist in Ann Arbor were solidly connected to the Manaus
studio. A solid connection was required because of the images from Manaus
were to be commented on in real time by the physician in Ann Arbor. What
happened was very difficult to complete inside such a short time frame, but he
was told by many that this was the highlight of the workshop and that makes it
worth the effort. He would like to have the same success at the Philippines
workshop if possible, but much of the work can be done before he gets there
this time. We need 3 each ISDN BRI lines configured for International Order
Code (IOC) "S".

On May 31, 2000 Dr. Starling from the University of Michigan Health System
(UMHS) and Dr. Mariano from University of Amazonas Hospital performed a
telemedicine consult between the Michigan and Amazon. The consultation was
over a young man with a severe heart problem requiring prompt surgury. The
specific type of heart problem is an area of study by the National Institute
of Health (NIH). Dr. Starling is currently working under two of these NIH
grants and was very willing to share his findings with Dr. Mariano over the
video conferencing link. While the physcians simultaneously studied the
echocardiograph they dialoged with each other and the medical technologists
operating the equipment. The technologists manipulated various heart

Tak, Kim

I'm not surprised by NSF reponse -- this has been their position for many
years (i.e. that medicine is NIH's reponsibility) while they concentrate on
"science." It does present difficulties.

RE: NIH funding for international activities, the Fogarty Center of NIH does
provide such funding. This is where funding for our Peru public health
informatics research and training project comes from.

I'm still interested in potentially attending the University of the
Philippines meeting but my spring travel schedule is quite full.

Kim -- I'd really like to meet you one of these days and talk about
potential collaboration. Any chance you're planning to be in Seattle in
next few months??
