Abstract

Telemedicine is a method, by which patients can be examined, investigated, monitored, and treated, with the patient and the doctor located in different places. Tele is the Greek word meaning distance, and mederi is the Latin word meaning to heal. Though initially considered futuristic and experimental, telemedicine is today a reality and is here to stay. In telemedicine one transfers the expertise, not the patient. Hospitals of the future will draw patients from all over the world without geographical limitations. High-quality medical services can be brought to the patient rather than transporting the patient to distant and expensive tertiary care centers. A major goal of telemedicine is to eliminate unnecessary traveling of patients and their escorts. Data acquisition, storage, transfer, processing, and display represent the basis of telemedicine. Telemedicine is becoming an integral part of health-care services in several countries.
