Task Force Sustainable Telemedicine Services

With the Task Force Sustainable Telemedicine & Chronic Disease Management EHTEL connects key actors and supports them to develop essential cornerstones to reach consensus for collaboration and implementation in the field. Telemedicine services provide means to improve accessibility to high quality health care in case of shortage of appropriate health professionals or the necessary medical expertise or skills at the site of the patient. Telemedicine covers a broad spectrum of services such as teleconsultation, second opinion, telehomecare and teletraining and builds on technologies such as video-conferencing supported by the exchange of medical images and medical records as well as remote monitoring. Communication infrastructure include ordinary telephone land-lines, internet connections of various speeds and in many instances also satellite links to enable health care in remote and isolated areas.
