Recent advances in information and telecommunications have changed the way services are delivered around the globe, and the field of medicine has been no exception. Telehealth and telemedicine are now one of the fastest-growing medical sectors worldwide. Telemedicine, the delivery of healthcare services through telecommunications technology does not substitute the classic relationship between physicians and patients but adds value and make that relationship richer and more collaborative. Cross-border video-consultations, tele-monitoring and remote robotic surgery are examples of the potential for telehealth to revolutionize the delivery of healthcare.
Tele-Med International (TMI), was founded in 2008 in direct response to this emerging trend. Through partnerships with premier local, regional and international health care providers and utilization of state-of-the-art technology, TMI provides telehealth services that enable dynamic healthcare transactions at the local, regional and international levels.
