Towards grid-enabled telemedicine in Africa

Abstract : Telemedicine services are very relevant tools to train local physicians and to improve diagnosis by exchanging medical data. Telemedicine networks allow these exchanges but the set-up of multipoint dynamic telemedicine requires moving towards GRID technologies. A healthgrid is an environment where data of medical interest can be stored and is easily available between the different actors of healthcare. Two telemedicine applications were developed to link physicians from Burkina Faso and France with the perspective of setting up a grid infrastructure between the participating medical sites. A web site to exchange diagnosis on diabetic retinopathy was developed in PHP and another application using web services was developed to exchange patient information between two databases.
