Dr. Rafael J. Grossmann - iPod Teletrauma

Dr. Rafael Grossman

Rafael J. Grossmann, MD, FACS 


  • General and Trauma Surgery
  • iPod Teletrauma
  • Telemedicine Innovation

Dr. Grossmann is an attending trauma surgeon at Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) using an iPod teletrauma solution to serve patients in Maine. When I first saw the YouTube video of him speaking at a TEDx conference about iPod teletrauma, I was impressed by both his passion for telemedicine and his knack for marketing. He is a tireless advocate for the adoption  and expansion of teletrauma. If you want some great ideas about how to get started with teletrauma, Rafael is a great person to know.
