The project was coordinated by Carl Hild, Anchorage, Alaska. Project partners came from the member countries and indigenous people of the Arctic.
The final report was presented to the Arctic Council in September 2000. In additon to a short description from each country, the group made some recommendations for telemedicine in the Arctic.
