Rostelecom extends capabilities of telehealth in Armenia

  • by Arthur Yernjakyan

 The capabilities of telehealth in Armenia are being expended thanks to the sponsor support of Rastelecom and launching of the video-conference service. 

On 27 May, through the video-conference Rostelecom established communication between the Yerevan Scientific and Medical Library and the head doctor of Kapan town. 

As director general of GNC-ALFA (subsidiary of Rostelecom), Hayk Faramazyan, told journalists today, the Library and "Hayastan" All-Armenian Fund offered GNC=ALFA to develop telehealth in the republic. The company expressed readiness to sponsor the programme. "We have expressed readiness to sponsor the programme, as we have a  well-developed infrastructure. We have recently introduced the video-conference service in the republic, which allows residents of Armenia and foreigners to participate in it without making serious investments, which is a privilege if compared with the currently acting technologies", - Faramazyan said. He also added that  Rostelecom has  an opportunity to work both through the Internet and data transmission network, and allows 50 persons simultaneously to take part in the video-conference. Faramazyan said that this is very much convenient for delivery of lectures and sharing experiences, as well as for the mobile treatment when a patient cannot come to Yerevan from the far away regions of Armenia. Faramazyan said that this is a pilot programme and in future the company is going to extend the geography of video-conferences and also use them for the presentations and other events. 
Microsurgeon Gevorg Yagjan told journalists that first the telehealth programme started in 2007 when telecommunucation was established with physicians of

Nagornyy Karabakh. He also added that today the video-conference system of Rostelecom is the best in the market. For this reason, the company was offered to sponsor the programme. The system is interactive, and makes it possible to use slides and gold consultations. 
GNC-ALFA CJSC is the leading network services operator in Armenia in the market of IP Transit, Broadband Internet Access and Data Transmission services.  GNC-ALFA CJSC network is based on fiber–optic cable infrastructure with a country-wide coverage and is the only network interconnected with four international cable systems, which secure uninterrupted services provision. In February 2012 Company’s control was acquired by Rostelecom Group. Since December 2012 GNC-ALFA CJSC is providing Internet and IP telephony services through GPON network on the retail market under the brand of Rostelecom.
