CALL FOR VOTES for sci.med.telemedicine
(Repeat call and acknowledgement, 1 week after the start of

Following a three week discussion period during which all
responses were favorable, here is the official Call for Votes to
create the group.

STATUS: unmoderated

CHARTER:  Discussion of computer networks that connect between
          hospitals and/or physician's offices, including
          international linkages between medical facilities in
          different countries.

          Subjects will include hardware and software for such
          networks, increased use of networks for transmission of
          text and image patient data, and help in use of e-mail
          for medical purposes.

          The group will be linked to the bitnet list
          hspnet-l at albnydh2.

VOTING PERIOD: The voting period started with the posting of this
          CFV, and lasts for 30 days.  Votes received after
          23:59:59 GMT on 25 day of March 1993 will not be

          Each person has only one vote, even if they have
          multiple computer accounts.  Votes must be mailed to
          the vote-taker (Donald Parsons).  Posted votes will not
          be counted.

HOW TO VOTE: Vote by sending mail to dfp10 at csc.albany.edu or
          dfp10 at albnydh2.bitnet with the word YES or NO in the
          subject line.  If you use rn or a similar news reader,
          you can use r (reply), edit YES or NO into the Subject
          line, and mail it.  Ideally your vote would appear as
          one of the following:

     Subject: YES sci.med.telemedicine
     Subject: NO  sci.med.telemedicine

Votes which do not contain yes or no in the subject line will
cause extra work but still will be counted so long as they are

Votes will be acknowledged by mail, but any acknowledgement that
bounces will not be re-tried.  There will be at least one mass
acknowledgement (this document) posted during the voting period. 
The final vote tally will be posted at the end of the vote,
including a list showing how everyone voted.

If you vote more than once from the same address, only the most
recent vote received will be counted as valid.  If you vote more
than once from different addresses in an apparent attempt at a
vote fraud, all your votes may be rejected, and this fact plus
your name published in the net.

RESULT: At the end of the voting period, there will be a period
          of five days from the posting of the result to allow
          any errors to be noted and corrected.  The group will
          be created if at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes
          are received, with at least 2/3 of the valid votes in
          favor.  If both the 100 vote margin and 2/3 majority
          are not met, the group will not be created.
