Telemedicine service in the Republic of Palau
Video-based interactive public services in the Republic of Palau
Used for remote education and e-commerce as well
In the Republic of Palau, which is situated at the western end of Micronesia in the western Pacific, a project is about to begin to build a computerized system focused on video-based interactive public services. This project envisions providing telemedicine, remote education, e-commerce and other cutting-edge services through the use of the network of optical fiber lines that are installed into all households in Palau, which consists of 200 islands. The design and production company, which is promoting the project jointly with the government of Palau, is developing software that allows various services to be accessed from a single screen. The company says its aim is to create a system that enables the symbiosis of people, information technology (IT) and the environment.
