As an innovative form of healthcare delivery, telemedicine involves technology and process changes that will profoundly affect the organizations into which it is introduced. However, few comprehensive studies have been conducted to determine the impact on organizations that implement such a healthcare delivery process. This paper examines some of the issues that will be studied during Project Akamai when telemedicine is introduced into a natural, yet limited, military setting Tripler Army Medical Center and Hickam Primary Care Clinic.
