PS5-5 : Telemedicine to fight against medical deserts

In Siberia, in the Amazon rainforest, in rural areas in India or in France access to a doctor for a medical consultation is difficult. In war situations, the deployment of medical teams has become impossible.

The development of the internet makes possible remote communications. Different activities are organized (consultations, advice, training, monitoring or quality control ...).

Unfortunately, not all experiences translate into increased access to care. Legal or ethical issues appear.

It is sometimes difficult to understand the characteristics of the many tools that come to the market.

It is therefore necessary to study the experiences to make full use of the potential of telemedicine.
