The purpose of HECTOR is to offset the general lack of a multidisciplinary approach geared to global solutions in health care emergency activities. The project will mobilise existing technology and the new capabilities of multimedia and telecommunications to pilot an integrated interoperable solution, with an optimum cost-benefit trade off. Features of the system will include prompt efficient reaction in emergencies, two-way clinical data transmission, medical telesupport at the point of care, and minimal intervention. The system will also provide training to professionals and information to citizens.
