Athens, Greece – 10 September 2020 Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced the donation of five advanced portable telemedicine kits to Greece's Ministry of Health, thus contributing to the effective monitoring and management of any potential ad-hoc needs everywhere, especially in remote and isolated areas.
As the COVID-19 pandemic is still going strong globally and the cases in Greece are moving upwards, Intracom Telecom decided to donate the most advanced portable telemedicine kits to the Ministry of Health to further equip the emergency response personnel in addressing a variety of medical situations with speed, efficiency and quality of service.
Mr. Michalis Prountzos, Human Resources Director of Intracom Telecom, underlined: "It is our responsibility to contribute to the on-going battle against COVID-19, hand-in-hand with the government. We are committed to developing innovative technologies that improve the quality of life of our fellow citizens.
