Abstract
The North Slope Borough (NSB) Telehealth Project involves the use of slowscan (freeze-frame video) and telephone communications between 7 small villages, a central 14-bed hospital, and a large urban hospital over 700 air miles away. The project is intended to improve the quality of health care in this remote rural area in northernmost Alaska. This article describes the initial testing stages of the project and discusses applications for use of this technology. It focuses on the technological potentials for bridging cultural and linguistic differences between health care provider and client and from provider to provider for enhanced primary health care.

To determine the incidence and nature of calls for on-call physicians after hours at a tertiary-level rehabilitation center.
Prospective survey of on-call physicians during 1 year.
A tertiary-level rehabilitation center with 66 beds in Nova Scotia.
Residents, clinical associates, and staff physicians covering calls.
Not applicable.
Number of calls during 1 year, types of calls, medical issues dealt with, and time spent in center after hours dealing with calls.
The overall response rate by on-call physicians was 75%. In the 274 days for which surveys were returned, 467 calls were received. Of these calls, 53% were for medication orders, 36% for medical issues, 7% for procedures, and 5% for incidents.
For a 65-bed unit, on-call staff were called a median of once per night. The most common call was for medication orders. House staff were required to come in about once in every 9 calls (11%) and stayed less than 1 hour in most cases.
