It all started with a seafarer fainting at full sea. He felt fine afterwards, but his heartrate had dropped to only 35 bpm. In this situation, the only thing a captain can do for the seafarer is to call a doctor and explain his problem over the phone or via email… If you’ve tried fixing a technical issue over the phone before, try this.

On the one hand, rescueing a seafarer from a ship mid-sea is very expensive, but not rescueing him might be even more expensive. On the other hand, the doctor at shore needs more information to be able to save the seafarer.
What if we could send a "stack trace" to the doctor?

In this presentation Rocky de Wiest and Philip Verbist will discuss the current (technical) state of their project regarding global medical advice, and look forward to the future of open source software in healthcare.
