IET Participates in Public Health Initiative Network

The Public Health Initiative Network (PHINet) project is charged with examining the correlation between the existing telemedicine network and the CENIC network infrastructure. A project team of individuals from UCD, UCDHS, and CENIC recently approved the detailed functional requirements for the network and selected seven telemedicine sites to serve as the basis for a cost benefit analysis. The results will be used to assess the financial feasibility to leverage the CENIC infrastructure for the telemedicine and Public Health Initiative services. (For more information, see the CENIC Web site).
