London's newly built private hospital, the Heart Hospital, has opened a telemedicine facility in conjunction with Interclinical Telemedicine Network, even before it has begun admitting inpatients. The partnership began receiving live case data in March from the El-Maadi military hospital in Cairo.

Cardiology specialists at the Heart Hospital guided Egyptian surgeons over a live ISDN and satellite link. ITN says it is now negotiating with NHS trusts.
