Daytona Beach medical center broadcasting surgeries over the Internet
Daytona Beach, FL-based Halifax Health Medical Center has shown two surgical procedures live over the Internet since April, and it plans to air a third operation in the fall. The center's public-relations manager said the broadcasts help educate people who might undergo the procedures and give patients' family and loved ones a close look at the technology and techniques used at the facility. They also help educate medical students, professors, physicians, and the general public while showcasing the hospital's talents, programs, and technology, officials say.
