SIEMENS STROMBERG-CARLSON AND A.D.A.M. SOFTWARE TO DEMONSTRATE BENEFITS OF DISTANCE LEARNING WITH DR. C. EVERETT KOOP

 LEBANON, N.H., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Stromberg-Carlson and A.D.A.M.(TM) (Animated Dissection of Anatomy for Medicine) Software, Inc. will demonstrate distance learning applications for medicine at a forum hosted by Dr. C. Everett Koop at Dartmouth College. The demonstration is designed to illustrate to the health care community the value of technology as one of the solutions to the nation's health care crisis. The event will take place June 17-18 and will include a presentation to Ira Magaziner, director of the Health Care Task Force and Roy Neil, Deputy House chief of staff.
 Distance learning across the public network is made possible by telecommunications equipment supplied by Siemens Stromberg-Carlson. By linking the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center to a local hospital, the application will show how remotely located doctors can consult with each other on a patient's treatment. The application is ideally suited for linking rural communities with the city hospitals. Using this technology, a primary care physician located in a rural area can link-up with a specialist at a major medical center to review a procedure. Using the A.D.A.M. software, the specialists can guide the primary care physician through the steps of a procedure so that the rural physician can then perform the necessary treatment.
 Networked distance learning applications are made possible using the Siemens Stromberg-Carlson EWSM Cell Switching System. The cell switch uses SMDS (Switched Multimegabit Data Service) technology to link workstation computers from remote areas to metropolitan locations. Users can access this capability over existing telephone lines.
 "It is clear that technology can have immediate application in the medical community, not only improving certain aspects of health care delivery, but also having an impact on costs," said Van Cullens, senior vice president of marketing at Siemens Stromberg-Carlson.
 Distance learning has additional applications for education in the medical community. The fully interactive, multimedia program from A.D.A.M. Software enables the students to dissect the human anatomy on their workstations, as shown by their teacher. With SMDS technology, medical professors can teach students located across the country. Additionally, the same technology can be used by doctors seeking further certification in a new medical procedure.
 "This technology eliminates geographical boundaries so that remotely located physicians can benefit from consultations with specialists. Students using this technology can gain an advantage through an interactive network, capable of delivering one teacher's expertise to multiple sites," said Robert S. Cramer, co-founder and chairman of A.D.A.M. Software. "By working with Siemens Stromberg-Carlson, we are able to transport this educational software across the public network, enabling users to access the software on demand."
 A.D.A.M. Software, Inc., publishes, markets and creates multi-media software for medically oriented products. The A.D.A.M. team consists of more than 70 employees, including master-degreed medical illustrators, software engineers, commercial illustrators and graphic artists.
