Medical Working Group is planning to hold medical sessions from February 19 (Tue) to 22 (Fri), 2019.

If you are interested in organizing a medical session, please use the attached application form when submitting your session request.


Recently, it is a common understanding that telemedicine, such as case teleconferences and live

demonstrations, connecting hospitals with videoconferencing (VC) and sharing medical contents,

is an efficient tool to fill the gaps in medical technology and knowledge for medical staffs.

However, the limitation of a dedicated technical staff is a problem in many hospitals in Asia.

The education of hospital engineers is of utmost importance to expand this kind of telemedicine

activity domestically and internationally.

We, Telemedicine Development Center of Asia (TEMDEC), have been conducting telemedicine activities

internationally since 2002. As of August 2018, 596 hospitals and universities in 62 countries participated

in the activity. Since 2015, we developed and implemented telemedicine engineering training programs

for hospital engineers and physicians in Asia.

In this program, trainees are divided into teams and assigned to support actual telemedicine sessions,

which are held in APAN conferences. Through the experiences of supporting actual sessions with team

members, the trainees will understand all technical issues that they should concern to support

telemedicine conference, such as setting up VC systems, controlling equipment, planning connectivity test,

and troubleshooting.



To make the trainees be confident on supporting telemedicine activities, by learning skills and knowledge on the followings,

  1. How a telemedicine event is managed

(Flow of all staff: doctors, engineers, coordinators, etc.)

  1. Required technical quality level for telemedicine
  2. Teleconferencing systems
  3. Technical preparations and teamwork
  4. How to work on problems
  5. Friendship in medical community
