AMD reports a 250% increase in the number of states using their technology for school-based applications, over the last 18 months.
“Telemedicine technology has allowed us to provide children with easy access to inexpensive healthcare services in an environment conducive to the least disruption possible for them as well as their parents,” commented Sal Saldivar, Chief Information Officer at La Maestra Community Health Centers. “A single telemedicine system can be deployed seamlessly without requiring additional technical support from the school IT department, and more importantly – AMD’s telemedicine products are easy for our staff to understand and use,” added Saldivar.
“Over the past four years, we have witnessed the tremendous change in how schools are embracing telemedicine technology. What was once considered an IT project by the school system is now a community health program,” commented Dan McCafferty, Vice President, Global Sales and Corporate Development, AMD Global Telemedicine. “We are excited our telemedicine technology is having such an impact on the future of our children,” added McCafferty.
