The telemedicine is emerging as a new way of medical practice. It will provide more cooperative activity between hospitals and more comfortable access for disabled patients home. We developed a telemedicine system which is aimed to be run on the broadband-intergrated services digital network (B-ISDN). The multimedia database is adjusted to those information about patients that is directly relevant to a doctor's diagnosis. The user interface is designed to help doctors to communicate easily. The key elements of telemedicine systems were designed for user friendly interface and We implemented the pilot system to confirm the usefulness of the system.

Key Words: Telemedicine, B-ISDN, Multimedia database
