Published Tuesday April 27 2021

Luxembourg’s SATMED SES telemedicine platform has been providing critically important support to medical professionals since the Ebola outbreak in 2014, and continues to do so during the Covid-19 crisis. 

The Luxembourg Government and SES’s fully-owned affiliate SES Techcom launched the second phase of the SATMED telemedicine project that will run into 2024. Enabled by satellite, SATMED is designed to connect doctors and nurses based in remote locations to the outside medical world, providing access to the platform’s cloud applications for e-training, virtual consultations, management and storage of medical data records, and video conferencing.
