The University Corporation for Internet Development (CUDI), national education and research network in Mexico, promotes university research initiatives using advanced broadband networks. Telemedicine is a very important initiative.

CUDI allows doctors and Mexican engineers from different institutions participate in the TEMDEC project (Development Center Telemedicine Asia) and use the most advanced technology for sharing knowledge with colleagues and participating in events education and training worldwide acquiring knowledge to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The TEMDEC has organized 570 medical programs in 28 different remote areas, including surgery, endoscopy, infectious diseases, cardiology, pediatrics, care and more.

Engineers and physicians from Mexico work together with colleagues from Asia in medical education and distance learning.

TEMDEC has collaborated with 406 medical institutions in 55 countries  and has established a huge human network of doctors and engineers worldwide. It also hosts the annual Asia Telemedicine Symposium where physicians and engineers meet not only to share knowledge and solve problems, but also to deepen their friendship. TEMDEC also offers training programs for both doctors and engineers from abroad with 204 researchers registered in 31 countries to date.

Harold God, Department of General Coordination of Information Technology at the University of Guadalajara, runs the Technical Working Group of CUDI Multicast allows work together with TEMDEC of Mexico. He is also director of engineering and partner in all projects telemedicine community health CUDI and member of the Latin American Medical Working Group on Advanced Network endoscopy Asia Pacific (APAN).

“There are many activities that have been conducted with TEMDEC through human network working together established between several doctors and specialists in ICT. These activities can be divided into two groups. The activities related to the transfer of technology through Memoranda of understanding (two MOU established) with the aim to promote and strengthen telemedicine activities in all medical institutions, leading all the technological advantages of networks for research and education. the second group of activities is related to the transfer of knowledge produced by all medical distance learning programs developed by Kyushu University Hospital, covering the areas of surgery, endoscopy, infectious diseases, cardiology, pediatrics, care and more , “he said.

For example, the Working Group Multicast of CUDI in collaboration with physicians TEMDEC helped the Mexican Association of Gastroenterology to participate in the first live surgery broadcast from two Japanese hospitals to an office in Mexico. The objective of this live demonstration, which took place during the Mexican Digestive Disease Week 2014, was to discuss the detection and characterization of gastroenterological cancers in their initial face.

“Doctors and engineers from Mexican institutions, with the support of the medical community CUDI also have the opportunity to participate twice a year in the session Teleconference Endoscopy Latin American and the session Medical Technology . They can also participate in the Asia Telemedicine Symposium organized TEMDEC distance medical education for all its members. ”
