Medweb Helps Expand Specialty Healthcare in Kosovo

Peter Killcommons

Holding an MD from New York Medical College, Dr. Peter (Pete) Killcommons has amassed over three decades of experience as a medical practitioner. As the founding CEO of San Francisco-based Medweb, Dr. Peter Killcommons spearheads the delivery of telemedicine and teleradiology technologies, often leveraging mobile medical solutions to expand healthcare access in remote and developing communities.

Since its founding in 1992, Medweb has brought telehealth technology to such countries as Malaysia, Antigua, and Pakistan. The company has also aided disaster relief efforts following tragedies like Hurricane Katrina.

Most recently, Mebweb worked to fill a pressing need for specialized medical care in Kosovo, where rural communities lack convenient access to specialty consultations. Partnering with Rotary Clubs from Gjakova, Kosovo, and Edwards, Colorado, and with additional support from Rotary International, Medweb facilitated the installation of digital healthcare tools in rural Gjakova communities. By providing computers and telecommunications equipment to family medical centers throughout the region, Medweb and Rotary Club helped to link existing primary care providers with secondary and tertiary healthcare networks, allowing patients to seek medical care for a wider, more specialized range of health concerns.
