Gen-i plans to offer health advice via video and web conferencing, as recently announced at the Health Informatics New Zealand conference.
While video and web conferencing may not yet offer the same level of detail as an in-person visit, this is a huge leap forward in the availability of initial diagnosis and treatment.
Patients from remote areas, poor countries, and other places with no reliable access to hospitals and doctors will be able to receive some basic feedback in real time by a network of health professionals.
Many diseases benefit massively from early diagnosis, and this is an ideal solution for many. Expect this to save lives in the next few years.
For cutting edge web conferencing and video conferencing based in the cloud, look to All Conferencing as your solution.
