TELEHEALTH IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD: International Development Research Centre

TELEHEALTH IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD: International Development Research Centre: "Health care is primarily about people-to-people interactions. It is about understanding, diagnosis, physical contact, communication, and, ultimately, providing care. By bringing people together, telecommunication technologies have the potential to improve both the quality of and access to health care in the remotest areas of the developing world. Telemedicine offers solutions for emergency medical assistance, long-distance consultation, administration and logistics, supervision and quality assurance, and education and training for healthcare professionals and providers.

This book aims to redress the relative lack of published information on successful telehealth solutions in the developing world. It presents real-life stories from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. It is rich in practical experience and will be of interest to health professionals, development workers, and e-health and telehealth proponents interested in learning about, or contributing to the implementation of, appropriate solutions for 80% of the world’s population."

  1. Sounds like an interesting book. Another book that I think is a great book for practicing physicians who want to run a successful medical practice is a book titled, "The Ultimate Practice Building Book," by David Zahaluk. This book teaches physicians how to master wearing two hats simultaneously: clinician and practice builder- highly recommended.
