The Region of Epirus, located in a rather isolated and up to now underdeveloped part of Greece, has made a significant effort in establishing and promoting an integrated environment for health care delivery through the development of a regional Health Telematics Network, the Epirus-Net. Epirus-Net is a fixed wireless data network, that gradually extends throughout the region and connects regional hospitals and health care centers. The network provides access to Integrated Electronic Health Record services, resource services (Directory of Healthcare Providers), educational services (distant learning courses on medicine) as well as specialized medical tele-conference and tele-consultation services. Within the context of this paper the network infrastructure and the computer-based patient record, CPR, system, is described.
