IRHC Hosts Extreme Remote Medicine Conference – Sept. 11-12

remote offshore medicine conference

Join the conversation with other global practitioners of extreme remote and offshore medicine. The Institute of Remote Health Care (IRHC) is putting on its annual conference   September 11-12, 2013 at the the Suttie Centre for Teaching & Learning in Healthcare, Robert Gordon University of Aberdeen.

Telemedicine and telehealth are essential components for those living and working in remote communities as well as extreme remote and offshore locations. Very often these are people employed by oil, gas, and mining industries which can be found in vastly different (often hostile) environmental conditions from tropical to Arctic climates, from remote deep waters to inshore shallow waters.

This year’s IRHC conference will be honoring individuals and teams who have shown outstanding healthcare delivery and clinical support in emergency, offshore and extreme remote settings. It will also be looking at the future of remote health care and redesigning models with telemedicine and ehealth technology for better health care delivery in remote and austere environments.

Don’t miss Milton, VSee CEO, Thurs., September 12, at 12 noon DST (4 a.m. PST) with his talk on “Reducing Telemedicine Costs by 10x: Shell Oil Platforms, Rwanda Community Health, and Emergency Doctor Access via iPhone.”

For those who are unable to attend in person, sign up to see the IRHC event  streamed live here. For more information check out the conference program.
