Abstract: This paper examines the viability of the CyberCure project that is currently being developed by the KK Women's and Children's Hospital. It also reviews the aims of the CyberCure project and the direction that the project has taken so far. In so doing, this paper provides an evaluation of the project as it currently stands, and will attempt to make recommendations for changes to the project in order to maximise the returns for the hospital. The paper starts by laying out the directions leading to the rationale of the case-study. It also reviews various literatures, tracing the growth of Internet and telemedicine, as proof to how emerging technologies have changed communications in the healthcare industry. A multi-case study approach is taken to compare two similar projects, CyberCure and Starbright World. An analysis of each project is made and a final assessment of the CyberCure project is included in the concluding section of this paper, together with a recommendation for changes to the project. This paper affirms the researcher's belief that communications in the healthcare industry going through a metamorphosis, and that emerging technologies in telecommunications can positively impact the quality of life of patients, and their care-givers.
