Telemedicine refers to providing health care services at a distance using information and communication technologies (ICT). Telemedicine involves providing some kind of health care service to a patient, such as an online consultation between a patient and a doctor, remote patient monitoring through medical devices, or consultations between two doctors to arrive at a management plan for a patient case. The term “telehealth” is a broader umbrella term which encompasses providing health services at a distance (telemedicine) as well as other health system activities like health provider education (eLearning), research and evaluation (online questionnaires), health administration activities. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, providing health care via telemedicine has become a necessity. The goal of this training is to orient doctors and hospital administrators to the field of telemedicine so they can effectively use telemedicine in their day to day practice or incorporate it into their health organization. This training is open to doctors and health administrators from Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
