1. Definition
Telemedicine is a provision of healthcare services, which uses telecommunication
technology and multimedia equipment to provide healthcare solutions over a geographic
distance. The technology and equipment used to provide the service include:
videoconferencing, cameras, Internet, satellites, and wireless communications.
Telemedicine provides clinical care services through two main technologies: pre-captured
(archived and then sent over the communication network) and real time. The pre-captured
technology is used in non-emergency situations. Applications of this technology include
Teleradiology and Telepathology. The real time technology, on the other hand, requires the
use of interactive screens to facilitate face to face consultation. It also assists the provision
of services such as Telecardiology, Telepsychiatry, and Telepediatrics. Videoconferencing is
commonly used to provide real time healthcare services.


A basic telemedicine unit consists of three modules:

  Data Capturing Module – It uses biosensors, image capturing devices, and other
     peripheral devices to capture data such as blood pressure and weight

  Processing Module – It comprises computers of varying complexity, which generate
     reports summarizing the data captured

  Networking Module – It includes video conferencing devices, satellite, Internet, and
     WLAN

This report includes the global market for Telemedicine technologies. The various segments
considered are as follows:

  Teleradiology - This refers to the electronic transmission of radiographic images
     (from radiologists sitting at a distant location) from one location to another for
     interpretation and consultation. This would also include the market for medical image
     transfer for other purposes like Telecardiology and Teledermatology.

  Teleconsulting – This refers to the medical consultation between a patient and a
     healthcare professional or two health professionals on an electronic network (such as
     intranet and Internet)

  Telemonitoring - This refers to supervising the health status of patients, from a
     distance. The data is either collected thr
