Telemedicine

Telemedicine (Tele = Distance ~ Medicine) is a concept of providing healthcare to patients over telephone instead of the patient having to travel long distances at enormous costs. Telemedicine generally refers to the use of communications and information technologies for the delivery of clinical care.

A man in a distant village with a mouth ulcer desperately wants an expert opinion whether the ulcer is cancerous. He chews tobacco and is aware that this can cause cancer. In case it indeed is, he has to visit a cancer specialist to get it examined.

With the latest technology at our disposal, it is possible to transport the patient virtually to a specialist - in the form of patient reports, x-rays, etc. One can get the doctor's opinion at a fraction of the cost and the time taken will also be less. For instance, in the above example, only the patient's biopsy slides need to be transmitted to a specialist pathologist anywhere. The specialist can, if required, manipulate the position of the slide to enable him to make right diagnosis.
