Hello, it’s me
I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing
Was Adele calling her doctor? Lost to follow up for several years but now she wants a consult. So that’s far-fetched, but I hope that grabbed your attention.
On Saturday Feb 6 9 pm Manila time (8 am EST), let’s tweet about telemedicine at the #HealthXPH tweet chat.
The World Health Organization defines telemedicine as –
The delivery of health care services, where distance is a critical factor, by all health care professionals using information and communication technologies for the exchange of valid information for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease and injuries, research and evaluation, and for the continuing education of health care providers, all in the interests of advancing the health of individuals and their communities.
Ideally, telemedicine should be employed only in cases in which a prior in-person relationship exists between the patient and the physician involved in arranging or providing the telemedicine service.
