Clinton Global Initiative Features Global HouseCall Video Telemedicine Commitment

Global HouseCall

Former President Bill Clinton's foundation selected Global HouseCall as one of the featured commitments from the 2009 Clinton Global Exchange which just concluded in New York City. Global HouseCall is a new video telemedicine system which connects patients and doctors over cell phone networks in real time. More information is available at website.

Patients will be seen on computer screens by doctors who receive transmissions through web cam and video enabled smartphones. Nurses, EMTs or aid workers can concurrently transmit data from monitoring equipment as simple as USB enabled stethascopes and otoscopes, and as complex as EKGs from ambulances and aid stations.

Global HouseCall is a new entity, which operates with a dual bottom line: economic profit and social gain. The profits in the developed world help underwrite the costs of providing reduced fee or free service in the underdeveloped world.

Global HouseCall uses existing technology to broaden the reach of health care and lower the cost. It is faster and cheaper to bring patients together in video consultation than to use the existing mechanism of office or emergency room visits. The Global HouseCall program is intended to help patients make informed decisions of whether they need additional care.

The roots of Global HouseCall come from its founder Eric Fuller whose father is a medical doctor. It occurred to Mr. Fuller that whenever he had a simple medical question he could ask his father. He didn't need to go to a doctor's office, clinic or hospital. Global HouseCall is intended to make that same immediate resource available to everyone.

Global HouseCall was honored to be one of the few organizations chosen by President Clinton to exhibit at the CGI Exchange in New York on September 23, 2009.
