Pediatrics And Cable Television (1973)

By Edward Wallerstein, Carter L. Marshall, M.D. and Rodney Alexander, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

The Department of Community Medicine of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (New York, New York), in cooperation with the TelePrompTer Corporation and with funding from the Health Services and Mental Health Administration of HEW, has developed a bidirectional television system using coaxial cable which links a pediatric office at the Medical Center to an outreach pediatric clinic in East Harlem, about a mile and a half away.

The pediatric staff at the Medical Center can be in audio-video contact with the clinic staff and patients and vice versa. Although the system has been in operation for only six months, its value is unquestioned. CATV can be used as an extender of medical expertise to the medically disadvantaged.
