'Telemedicine' means doctor is always in 2008/11/10 08:39 Karma: 6

MANILA, Philippines--The doctor is online.

Facing a laptop with a built-in camera, and wearing a headset, the specialist is ready to give medical advice to another doctor or a health worker thousands of kilometers away from the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital in Manila City.

Soon, he will be using the software being developed by the College of Engineering of the University of the Philippines Diliman which can transmit medical information like a patient's blood pressure, temperature or even electrocardiogram (ECG) results from provinces as far and as isolated as Batanes.

Netizens usually use them for leisure, but the National Telehealth Center is maximizing free online resources, like the Internet call software Skype, to provide healthcare access even to remote areas in the country.

"Our vision is to provide telemedicine to remote, underserved areas. We do not accept geographic limitations for people not to get basic health services," center director Alvin Marcelo told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a recent interview.

In just a few clicks, a doctor in a remote village can log into the center's website, called buddyworks, and send a query, which is received instantaneously in the computer system of the center's office.
