Telemedicine on the Grid



This joint project between the University of Cambridge and the West Anglia Cancer Network will demonstrate the capability of Grid technology to improve the delivery of patient care in the West Anglia region and potentially throughout the National Health Service. It is clearly desireable to provide care as near as possible to the patient's home. Continuity of care is also maintained for patients who require treatment at the Cancer Centre (e.g. for radiotherapy) as their treatment is planned by the same Consultant they have seen at their nearest Cancer Unit. Clinicians are currently travelling large distances to provide remote clinical services. This project will investigate the use of technology to prevent such travel and provide access to appropriate clinical information and images across the network.
