National Telemedicine Network project, is already in operation: includes 43 telemedicine units that connect health centers in the Aegean islands to central hospitals in Athens and other regions. Through sophisticated chambers,residents and visitors of the islands are guaranteed tele-medicine and tele-advice in real time. This eliminates the distance to large hospitals,reducing unnecessary movements and airlifts. 250 doctors have already completed their training,while tele-consultation and tele-education services are already on offer.
Smart Grids: grids which utilize communication between machines (Machine to Machine,M2M)to collect and process information in an automated way, to improve the energy and economic efficiency, reliability and sustainable production and distribution of electricity. According to the Smarter 2030 study, about 15% of the GHG emissions reduction potential, which can be achieved with the use of ICT products and services, is due to smart grids.
e-Energy: solutions that aim at reducing energy costs and creating a"greener" profile. Specifically, the new Energy Management service provides a system for monitoring the energy consumption of a company in real time,with the ability of even remote intervention.The aim is to ensure a reduction in energy consumption, operating in business costs, but also in its carbon footprint.
e-Applications: development of electronic applications for the Group’s clients(such as e-bill, e-payment, electronic submission of requests for telecommunications providers,and the service "yourbusiness.gr")that reduce paper consumption and enable better resource management.
Electronic Services for the Fire Department: implementation of an IT project, which is expected to contribute significantly to fire prevention and firefighting.
