Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Why Telemedicine?
eHealth, like eGovernment, eCommerce and eLearning, is now part of twenty-first century life. It is about placing citizens at the centre of the circle in order to simplify and improve their interactions with the wide range of people who look after their health needs and its potential is enormous for transforming both health and health care, from the national policy level to individual patient consultation and treatment.

Telemedicine is often used as a generic term to describe all forms of IT-enable healthcare reform,but it can best be thought of under four main themes,namely;

1) Embracing a whole variety of Clinical Applications, including:
● Telemedicine (virtual consultations )as well as Vital Signs Monitoring for chronically ill patients.
● Virtual outreach clinics supported by Video Conferencing, TeleHealth & TeleCare, i.e. providing more healthcare services in the home environment.
● ePrescribing and eBooking services to access to healthcare services in secondary and tertiary care centres.

2) Providing eLearning through the use of the Web, as educational resources for the entire healthcare professional body who require their healthcare skills to be updated continuously throughout their working career.

3) Delivering appropriate healthcare information to the general public through the use of all media channels, such that population based healthcare demand profiles can be changed as a result of empowering citizens with appropriate knowledge, such that they take on more responsibility for providing for their own healthcare needs.

4) Providing a lifetime health record for citizens which when depersonalised and the data is aggregated.This can enable large scale population based epidemiological studies to be made in real time. The adverse healthcare trends in defined population can be identified, and strategies put in place to minimize the impact long before it was possible previously.

Telemedicine is changing the landscape of healthcare access and delivery forever. It is transforming the physical infrastructures where healthcare has traditionally been exchanged, hospitals and clinics and driving the health delivery interface points out into the retail environment and into the home.
