Mr. Jesse Brandys
For patients located in medically underserved areas such as rural or economically disadvantaged locales in the U.S. and worldwide, access to cutting-edge medical care and physician specialists is often unobtainable and participation in clinical trials unlikely.
TELESYNERGY® is a combination of computer hardware, telecommunications software, medical equipment, and human expertise that allows clinicians to collaborate as if they were in the same room. With the system, cancer center specialists can consult on cases all over the nation and abroad and mentor investigators who work with patients in underserved areas to promote participation in clinical trials. Currently, 11 institutions in the U.S. and 2 international organizations are linked via the system.
