Links Directory from

Blue and gray lines graphicLinks Directory listings represent some of’s history since September 1996. Take a stroll through med tech resources from our perspective. Current links refer you to original entities, parent companies, and subsidiaries that remain in operation.

Several of the listings generate fond memories for’s researchers, especially in the telehalth / telemedicine / telephone triage segments. For example, company representatives at American TeleCare shared valuable insights during the early development of telehhealth home care services. Presidents and executive staff at the American Telemedicine Association enthusiastically participated in telephone interviews (spontaneously, too, on occasion).

Pioneering telehealth, telemedicine, and teleradiology companies include Apollo Telemedicine, Card Guard International, RADVISION, TETRA, and VTEL. There’s also an “Oregon Connection” with The Association of Telehealth Service Providers.

Carewise, Kaiser, FONEMED, Sykes Assistance Services Corporation, and TeleTriage have been early proponents and providers of nurse advice services, even as the segment has expanded to include other offerings.

For articles and news, Aunt Minnie may seem like a frivolous name, but the superb radiology content ranges from clinical to market-oriented material. HealthExecWire regularly delivers press summaries about population health management, while Health Affairs covers other thought-provoking health topics. Articles, webinars, and other forms of information are provided by the Healthcare Update News Service, the Payment/Delivery System Reform Update News Service, and the Retail Clinic Bulletin.

Facebook connections include the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta, GE Healthcare, Insight to Ashland, Jefferson Exchange, Oxygen Biotherapeutics, Puritan Pride, and Sunrise Medical. Great news feeds from many other sources provide human interest, medical, and technology stories, a few of which are the American Heart Association, JAMA, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Finally, we continue to appreciate the amazing Bug Circus video from QualComm. If you haven’t seen it, visit our Facebook page and scroll through the timeline to October 2012.
