Mohammad Hameed Altaei and Ziyad T. Abdul-Mehdi
Abstract—Telemedicine systems in Oman are not in wide use due to the shortage of expert people working in this field, and the misunderstanding of the capabilities of this technology in improving treatment with lower cost. The objective of this paper is to propose a telemedicine system “Digital Medical Center (DMC)” that covers all the cities of Oman with telemedicine facilities. DMC is a simple and easy-to-implement, and economically affordable alternative to the current systems; the aim is to improve the medical treatment in Oman and to put the advanced medical diagnosis in the world between the patient hands in Oman through the internet.
    The partners of this system connected by a Medical Treatment Network that based on the International Telecommunication Network and administrated by Digital Hospital which is an interface between all the hospitals in and outside Oman. This system is developed in client-server architecture with a powerful security features. The prototype design, requirements, description, and security of the system are discussed in this paper.

Index Terms—Telemedicine, telediagnosis, teleradiology, medical treatment, digital hospital.
