New high speed medical data network help save lives :
As of now, we have seen cops pull up criminal records or rap sheets in their vehicle computer systems. In a similar fashion, ambulances can now search and check out the patient’s medical records en route to the hospital. Thanks to the NEC WiMax system. This Fast Life Insurance saving system is still in the final stages of development and is about to be displayed at the WiMax Forum. This is a part of M-Taiwan project. WiMax will now be able to achieve about 6 Mbps per second. Apparently, this will be the only existing high speed data network as of now that will work in high speed ambulances. How will this service be used? Well, the service helps in pulling up electronic copies of x ray plates and other medical records. This data is imperative for saving the patient’s life. The NEC WiMax R & D center will open by the end of 2007 in collaboration with the Taiwanese government. Once the system is fully completed, it will be mostly used in Taiwan. I hope the Taiwanese government will release the valuable resources at a minimal cost to the world on humanitarian grounds. Although, I seriously doubt it. The WiMax product demo was recently hosted in the Taiwanese city of Hualien. The city of Hualien will use this system for the tourism and medical reasons. NEC also announced the development of liquid crystal display of amorphous silicon color film transistors. The LCD display modules will be used for medical applications. Wow! When I am talking about the LCD displays and WiMax M-Taiwan project, I feel I am traveling to the future. The bottom line is: the WiMax medical system will save some lives.
