In a remote village in Central America, an otherwise unmanaged child's infection can take a turn for worse if not for the long distance diagnosis capacity brought about by the recently installed telemedicine system between Zacapa, Guatemala, and Houston, Texas, where subspecialists in the field of Pediatric Dermatology viewed the wound and prescribed the critically needed treatment.
The dependence in medicine on technology to deliver services is continuously growing. The number of microprocessor-based diagnostic, therapeutic, and patient monitoring devices used in the clinical environment is ever-increasing.
