Telemedicine (in short, e-medicine) is a means of delivering medical services to any place, no matter how remote, thereby removing the limitations of space and time that exists in today’s health-care settings. Computers are indispensable in telemedicine, since they provide for efficient, relevant data gathering for large-scale applications. Besides providing immediate feedback of results to patients and doctors, they also can compare past patient records and evaluate relative improvement or deterioration. Further, they are readily available at any time, fatigue-free and can be more objective.
