Abstract
This article presents the design of a medical teleconferencing system that is integrated with a multimedia patient database and incorporates easy-to-u se tools and functions to effectively support collaborative work between ph ysicians in remote locations. The design provides a virtual workspace that allows physicians to collectively view various kinds of patient data. By in tegrating the teleconferencing function into this workspace, physicians are able to conduct conferences using the same interface and have real-time ac cess to the database during conference sessions. The authors have implement ed a prototype based on this design. The prototype uses a high-speed networ k test bed and a manually created substitute for the integrated patient dat abase.
