Telemedicine equipment for Republican hospital of Kaunas

04 May 2020

In order to develop surgical procedures and raise their administration capacities leading partner Republican hospital of Kaunas has purchased and installed telemedicine equipment.

Telemedicine equipment allows to film, translate, archive and review videos for these specific purposes:

  1. Record and archive surgery cases and use this information in cases of medical consiliums and medical audits.
  2. Use of interesting surgery cases in educational activities for medical students and surgery residents. Both live and recorded video material can be used for educational purposes.
  3. Record and archive diagnostic cases and use them to evaluate current situation and the effectiveness of the treatment before the surgery and to evaluate the research dynamically for choosing the most effective surgical method.
  4. Live consultations by senior and experienced surgeon. This equipment allows performing these consultations without leaving his current location and entering the surgery room, making disinfection and putting special clothes. These preparation actions prolong surgeries, increase operation costs and leave more possibilities for prolonged anesthesia and in rare cases can cause hospital infections. Equipment allows for consulting specialist to have a live conversation with colleague in surgery room from his cabinet or other working place.

Live translations from all 8 surgery rooms and corridors of surgery block allow to observe the working process and to know the exact phase of operations. This allows to reduce time for preparation for surgeries and to perform more operations per day. As the result, the waiting time for scheduled operations is shortened.
