Access to good medical news

LOCAL medical technology company Medic Vision will launch a television series on Access 31 to showcase the good news stories in the Perth medical sector.

The series will focus on medical research and treatment in WA including the work at the Lions Eye institute, RPH Research Foundation and the University of WA.

Medic Vision developed all of the audio visual and communications links for the University of WA-based Collaborative Training and Education Centre (CTEC), which was developed to improve surgeon training.

Medic Vision business development manager Daryl Cook said the team came across amazing stories unfolding right in WA on a daily basis.

“Traditionally the stuff that hits the news about this sector was the health system in crisis or nurses on strike,” he said.

Medic Vision works with producer Billy Chan, who is located at CTEC at the University of WA.

All the production for the television series is completed at CTEC.

“We see it as a good opportunity to promote the good things happening here in Perth,” Mr Cook said.

“It enables us to lift the profile of the local sector and to lift the veil of mystery.”

The first episode is scheduled to go to air on November 25 on Access 31.

“They [Access 31] have been fantastically supportive and they’re more than willing to take this sort of program on board,” Mr Cook said.

“It enables us to cut our teeth and from there hopefully take this to channels Nine, Seven and Ten.”

Mr Cook said that, once the program has gone to air he would be working hard to develop sponsorship relationships with allied companies in Perth.

“At the moment we are working hard to attract appropriate investment parties,” he said.

“We are seeking support from health departments and various insurers and we hope they will come to the party and support us.

Medic Vision was in the middle of doing a story on Clinical Cell Culture when that horrible event took place in Bali.

“We were the only people in town with footage of Fiona Woods working.”

This footage was screened on all the television stations here in Perth and on the east coast.

“Even now we are still getting calls and interest in Medic Vision,” Mr Cook said.

In addition to the television series, Medic Vision is developing training material for the medical practitioners around the world.

Medic Vision’s parent company, local telco New Tel, has had a difficult year with its share price falling more than 75 per cent in the past six months and calls for the resignation of managing director Peter Malone and Harry Sorensen.
