Benefits and disadvantages of telemedicine.

11:13 EDT 30th July 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Benefits and disadvantages of telemedicine."

Telemedicine is used more and more frequently worldwide. It is increasingly popular in North America, Australia, South Africa, as well as the Scandinavian countries. However, it is not commonly used in Hungary despite various attempts, which is presumably due to earlier dismissive governmental attitude. In this paper the authors analyze ethical, legal and financial aspects of telemedicine from the viewpoints of physicians and patients, too. The results indicate that it cannot be clearly decided whether telemedicine is worth to apply at present. Further, introduction of telemedicine should be based on experience gained in local application. Orv. Hetil., 2013, 154, 1167-1171.
