What is TeleMedicine?

We are finally there! Since this episode of the Jetsons TV show aired in 1962 technology has taken its time along with the old school thinking of many doctors. However, you can't stop progress, don't matter how hard you try. Embrace change!

Formally defined: Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communication to improve a patient’s health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and other forms of telecommunications technology.
