GTE to market Vidimedix offering

Telecommunications firm GTE and telemedicine software developer VidiMedix have formed a strategic alliance to market the VidiMedix Series 1000 PC-based telemedicine system. The system, which has received Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance, allows real-time remote patient/physician interaction and full-feature medical imaging, according to Austin, TX-based VidiMedix. VidiMedix 1000 consists of a group of desktop computer workstations that send, receive, and store a variety of medical information and images. Medical image and information can be simultaneously viewed, marked, and annotated with the system's whiteboarding and audio recording capabilities, according to the firm.

In other VidiMedix news, the company will participate in the Microsoft Certified Solution Provide program, which was formed by Microsoft to facilitate partnerships with information technology companies. VidiMedix is building upon Microsoft's forthcoming database technology to expand telemedicine beyond simple point-to-point connections, according to the firm. n
