Led by the Luxembourgish government, SATMED is a multi-layer platform which allows multiple medical applications to operate together on a single platform. Through its connection to the Emergency.lu platform, site-independent satellite internet connectivity can be established worldwide, providing e-Health infrastructure in rural and poorly connected areas.
The e-Health platform overcomes many of the obstacles faced in the e-Health environment, including poor connectivity, lack of Interoperability between applications and economic factors, such as the cost of deployment and implementation, by integrating e-Health applications and tools into one single access communications platform.
SATMED was designed under the principles of simplicity, availability and accessibility and provides three major services:
1. Open-access e-health and m-health tools that are integrated in one comprehensive platform. A single login provides access to a complete range of e-health applications: e-care (consultancy, patient record, PACS), e-learning, e-health management and financing.
2. Cloud services that support data management and data backup needs.
3. Satellite-enhanced internet service for areas where internet access is not available.
The value of SATMED is already being proven. In Sierra Leone, the platform has been used as a communication tool between the region's doctors and off-site doctors in Germany to exchange essential knowledge and expertise.
Other NGO partners' locations are currently being rolled out in Benin, Eritrea, Bangladesh and the Philippines.
