Kerouac launches telemedicine group

Former md/tv president Michael Kerouac has launched a nonprofit organization to provide telemedicine services to humanitarian projects around the world. Based in Charlottesville, VA, the organization, called RemeCare, offers a network of nine volunteer physicians available for telemedicine consultations, as well as a telemedicine management service.

RemeCare can provide help in organizing telemedicine projects, as well as selecting communication options and equipment. The organization can also assist with fundraising and project evaluations.

The organization has four telemedicine projects under way, three of which are international in scope. Four additional telemedicine projects are in the planning stages. RemeCare expects to deploy 35 total telemedicine systems in 1997 and another 75 in 1998. For more information, contact Michael or Carolyn Kerouac at 804/823-5880.
