Information Flow

Text Description is below the image.

Information flows from the patient through secure asynchonus communication to the doctor.

Presently the communication is monitored by a telemedicine center.

Possibly a tailored smart system can do the job.


Our current Telemedicine system require some trained individual (TTRC) examining the data sent by the patient and responding to the patient and when appropriate sending information to the health care provider.

To be economically viable, updates to the system are planned.
