Telemedicine is a generic term referring to all forms of medical information exchange, including a variety of telecommunication technologies. Applications in health and medical care include tele-communication, data and information technique are used to transfer medical information. The challenges facing developing countries (like India) in delivering high-quality medical care during the next century are great. Overcoming poverty, difficult access to medical care, governmental instability, lack of trained physicians, and a large burden of existing and emerging diseases all appear at times insurmountable.
