Covvey, H. Dominic; And Others
To provide remote psychiatric services to a population in Moose Factory, Ontario, via satellite, digital data links will be used to provide 24-hour access to the psychiatric medical file system and the psychiatric patient register at University Hospital, London, Ontario, and to permit scoring and interpretation of standard psychological tests. The experiments also will provide emergency and routine psychiatric consultation, supervision of procedures, and back-up expertise. Medical and para-medical staff will be educated through a TV-audio interactive link. The TV transmission method and the digital data link are explained, and the operational procedure are described. Methods to be used for implementing the Automated Psychological Test Battery also are described. (SK)
