Telemedicine of the Future – A New Way
August 26, 2020 at 9:00 AM, Pacific Coast Time Zone
Presented by: Marc Lazarovici MD
The presentation will start by discussing several problems of modern healthcare, mainly those where currently solutions based on telemedicine are available and implemented. Building on this an innovative approach for increased presence in telemedicine, the so called telepresence, will be discussed. After an introduction of the basic technological concepts we will dive into different use cases and discuss them in some detail. Also potential difficulties will be addressed, as well as ideas to overcome them. As this is all rather early work, some ideas are in the proof of concept stadium. The presentation will conclude discussing a final outlook into future developments of telemedicine, discussing ideas not yet even in the early implementation stage.
