In this paper, we aim at two objectives. Firstly, to construct the model of a powerful tele-medicine centre, that can be initiated by private and national health sector synergies. Secondly, to present our results from the systems and control science point of view, since several constructive methods and powerful tools of these two mature fields of engineering and mathematics can be applied. The whole project is based primarily on satellite facilities, see Galileo/ESA initiatives. The initial substantial costs and funding of such an investment can be properly covered in a mixed fashion by the countrypsilas National Health System and the private entities that will be providing tele-medicine services to larger target groups of end-users. Thus, in this research work, an intelligent engineering-model structure is described that can be easily adapted to serve multiple and diverse needs. This model demonstrates the promise of IC technologies in the delivery of patient-centred healthcare. Moreover, it provides a stepping-stone for distant continuing education between academic health sciencespsila centres, i.e. the Nursing Departments of Universities, the Medical Centres, the Hospitals, the Health Care Laboratories etc. Thus, several types of teleconference equipment and hardware can be employed to provide teaching assistantship for different kinds of e-health services.
