HIgh PERformance TeleMEDicine platform
HIPERMED designed an open telemedicine platform based on a unified Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) providing media services, SIP-based control plane services and network services over the Internet Protocol (IP). The project exploited and extended the results from the HDVIPER CELTIC project in a healthcare scenario. The platform supports remote consulting, tele-teaching and distributed consensus decision-making on treatment programmes. It is also possible to implement any sort of healthcare unit, e.g., in homes of patients and stand-by healthcare workers.
