Ellumen Inc. is featured in Telemedicine Magazine’s September Issue for the Crisfield and Smith Island Telemedicine Project. In late 2015, Ellumen began working with Kerry Palakanis, DNP, NP-C, head of the Crisfield Clinic in Crisfield, MD to help improve both day-to-day and emergency healthcare for the neighboring Smith Island (population 276)—located ten miles out into the Chesapeake Bay with no bridge or airstrip, accessible only by boat or helicopter. Mary Vogel, Ellumen’s Vice President of Client Solutions, heads up the project with a small team of engineers and telemedicine experts including Dan Bray, chief engineer, and John Kornak, former University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) Director of Telehealth. Together with the Crisfield Clinic, Ellumen has worked to bring better, more accessible healthcare to all residents, lower the costs associated with telemedicine, and provide a model for successful telemedicine in other remote areas going forward.
