Continuing Medical Education (CME) is very vital for healthcare professionals to render high quality services in line with new developments, both in urban and rural locations. Telemedicine facilities provide robust platform for delivering CMEs to remote locations whereby doctors can avoid travelling.
Similarly, these facilities are used to conduct complicated case discussions and seek second opinion. Such cases are discussed by panel of doctors irrespective of their geography whereby medical knowledge is shared amongst peers.
Tools like video conferencing systems can be used for conducting community development programs and also for imparting knowledge to the medical/ paramedical staff involved in the delivery of healthcare services. This can take shape in the form of grand-ward/rounds, preoperative rounds, clinico- pathological correlations etc.
