Telemedicine Applications

ZTN is helping a lot of people in Zimbabwe embrace telemedicine technology as a solution to expand health care services for their patients in need. One of the greatest challenges in rural health is assuring that medical expertise is available when it is needed and where it is needed. This is difficult for remote rural healthcare facilities because they are often unable to attract, afford or retain specialty providers. Telemedicine helps solve these issues by allowing access to specialists regardless of location. This is done using live video conferencing, or real-time medical image sharing/communication portals.
