Abstract : An experimental Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) based telemedicine system was developed in less than three months and trialed on HMAS Success during RIMPAC 96. It provided similar functionality to commercial telemedicine systems, but at reduced cost. It increased both the level of support to ship's medical staff and medical care to ship's crew, but to derive maximum benefit the technology needs to be supported by doctrine and organisation structure.
