Telemedicine: A community perspective
from By Tracy Stanley
Developed so doctors could monitor astronauts in space, the concept of telemedicine isn't a new one. What has changed, however, is the technology that now allows global access to this way of practicing medicine. Physicians are starting to appreciate the worth and importance of being accessible to remote communities via video conference. The purpose of this article is not to discuss the mechanics of telemedicine but rather to underscore its value to the remote communities it serves.
