Greeting from the Representative Director
I am Takayuki Kori, the representative director of the Asian Telemedicine Laboratory.
This laboratory aims to promote and spread telemedicine in Asia.As a specialist in telemedicine, I would like to develop remote medical services in Asia, not limited to Japan, and I would like to save patients who can not accept face-to-face treatments.
Telemedicine is centered on three aspects: medical, IT, and social systems. Therefore, to introduce telemedicine newly requires multiple expertise.
With mere development of IT technology, it is difficult to develop telemedicine, I would like to make the most of my experience and strive to develop telemedicine from a broad perspective.
There are some countries where there is shortage of doctors in their villages and there is poor transportation system.In these countries, the remote medical treatment could be the best option of choice.I believe that it is our responsibility to provide the telemedicine technology.
A self-sustainable operation would be possible by introducing a system based on a prior study and by educating the local staff.But, in order to introduce telemedicine, IT knowledge and funds for introduction are necessary in addition to medical knowledge.Also, in order to operate at multiple facilities, it is necessary to define external operation rules.Since it is necessary to comply with the medical and telecommunications regulations of each country, it is impossible to adapt Japan’s operation method as it is, and customization of the operation method is necessary.
Our team has knowledge, and experience.In addition, Japanese telemedicine technology is cutting edge in the world.So, if you needs introduction of telemedicine, we can support you.
