TELEMEDICINE IN PAKISTAN

 

Imagine being ill or in physical pain and knowing that there's a remedy out there some where - but you have no access to it - that's where we the TELMEDPAK team come in. In the past few years the alphabet “e” has been attached to almost everything – e-mail, e-learning, e-commerce, e-banking, e-retail and e-services to name a few.

Gunther Eysenbach the ‘virtual doctor' describes e-health as an “emerging field in the intersection of medical informatics, public health and business, referring to health services and information delivered or enhanced through the Internet and related technologies.” This article dives into just one aspect of the e-health pool – Telemedicine.
