Collaboration with start-up business
Ongoing collaboration between the GRA Telehealth Group (MCG, Georgia
State, and Georgia Tech) and a newly formed company (Health-e-Station) has
resulted in the grand opening of their first facility on August 18, 2006 in
suburban Atlanta (Peachtree City).
A Health-e-Station is a walk-in center, offering after-hours and weekend
healthcare for patients with minor medical conditions. For those
experiencing illness that is discomforting but not serious, Health-e-Station
is the perfect choice for after-hours and weekend care.
Until now, medical treatment outside of regular doctor's hours has been
limited to telephone advice from nurses or pharmacists, or late-night trips
to a hospital emergency room that can be a costly and time-consuming
inconvenience. With Health-e-Station, there is a better option. Using
advanced telemedicine technologies, face-to-face computer-facilitated
encounters with physicians make healthcare visits with highly qualified
physicians readily available.
