With Thuraya + DigiGone Partnering Together, DigiMed Is The Result For SatHealth™ Comms

[Satnews] Thuraya Telecommunications Company has teamed with DigiGone to launch the communication solution DigiMed, a telemedicine solution to assist teams working in remote areas.

The cutting-edge DigiMed kit allows crucial face-to-face consults to take place between patients and doctors through ‘real-time’ teleconferencing enabled by Thuraya’s portfolio of broadband terminals. Ideal for workers in the Relief, Marine and Enterprise sectors, the cost-effective solution encrypts high-quality, real-time video using only a fraction of the available bandwidth.

Capable of streaming patient data in real-time and allowing medical professionals to make on-the-spot decisions in emergency situations, DigiMed can be used with the Thuraya IP, IP+, IP Voyager and Orion IP terminals to establish a secure, flexible platform that can be customized to a specific business. The compact, lightweight, portable kits are designed and built for easy transport and storage and the coverage area includes 161 countries around the world and most major shipping routes.
