Hello Conrad, I enjoy keeping up with emails from MedTech, but I no longer receive them. I did not ask to be taken off the list; they just stopped. Is there a reason? Please reinstate me to your email list, because I find much of it of interest and value. Thank you, John Liebert
Dear Conrad, I just joined your group. Grateful thanks.
I am a Healthcare IT Consultant and am presently working collaboratively with a group of volunteer doctors, who are interested in addressing rape in the camps in Haiti, setting up infrastructure to build a safety net.
We have an impressive core team, including a tech specialist in infrastructure development who wants to wire the country, as well as a former Minister in Haiti, who is now doing waste removal in the camps.
Given the focus on telemed in the US now and the potential outbreak of plagues in Haiti, we may take a new additional approach, as well, that being, help to address the medical crisis via telemed, tying into the funding for telemed in the US.
Do you know if there is funding that will allow this, that you have seen?
I appreciate your kind help and all of your due diligence. Let me know if you would like to participate along with us, in any way.
And, thank you for advising me to also put it out there to your group.
Wise counselors, welcome. I understand many of you have been to Haiti and are also involved there. I look forward to hearing from you.
