Abstract The Department of Defense-funded, Project A/D Med, has among its missions, the development of a telemedicine and medical informatics network in support of telemedical consultation, and the management and transfer of medical data among the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and selected North Atlantic Regional Medical Command medical treatment facilities. One of the goals of the project is to establish a cost-effective telemedicine system, composed of commercial, off-the-shelf products and designed for physicians’ to utilize on their desk-tops. The second goal of the project, spurred by recent reports citing the need for systematic, empirical study of the efficiency and effectiveness of telemedicine technology , 1,2 is to incorporate systematic planning for evaluation from the onset. This is one of the first controlled clinical trials testing the utility of this technology and the first to test this technology for surgical consultations involving acute-care neonates.
